Why learn French with us?



I am having the best learning experience with AF Calgary! The instructors are excellent, the staff is very welcoming and kind, and both in-person and online classes are great.

AF Calgary is a great space not only to learn the French language but also to meet people and have interesting conversations. The friendly staff are passionate about what they do...
