Online French Group Courses

Online French group courses are offered at all levels – from beginner to the more advanced

In order to keep safe all our students and teachers, all AF Ottawa’s general French courses take place ONLINE until October 31 with high-quality e-learning applications.


These online courses focus on oral proficiency with an interactive general French program using the Cosmopolite + textbooks.

To accommodate diverse schedules, we offer part-time and accelerated online group courses.

For an efficient but progressive learning experience, an online part-time course may be a better fit to reach your objective. We strongly recommend the part-time programs if you wish to proceed with timely and consistent progress. The online part-time courses are delivered over a 7 or 8 week period covering 28 or 30 hours per session.

Our instructors use public service training material for both levels B and C. They use the proper tools required to prepare you for the new version of the language proficiency test. Genuine and unaltered documents issued by various federal departments and agencies are also used as complementary material.

Alliance Française Ottawa also uses daily updated Internet resources offering public service employees a variety of stimulating learning tools such as video news reports, periodicals, and computer and/or television animations.

Your progress is regularly evaluated and before the exam you will be placed in interview situations similar to those you will face during the test.


We are aware that leaving your position and finding yourself in a learning pattern, or preparing for an exam, can be particularly stressful. As a result, we attach a great importance to the psychological factors influencing the final results.

We ensure that the various activities involved in the training meet your personal objectives. We meet you on regular basis to evaluate your progress and to find with you any learning alternatives to ensure your success.


L’Alliance Française Ottawa is not only a language school. It is also a cultural centre offering an abundance of services—from a resource centre where one can borrow documents, audiovisual material, periodicals, books and CDs, to a meeting place where various cultural activities such as conferences, debates, movie nights, and exhibitions are held. You can be constantly immersed in a friendly francophone environment.
