All General French courses end with a final evaluation (except for the level C course). If you pass, you will receive a certificate from the Alliance Française de Rotterdam.

The Alliance Française reserves the right to cancel a course if there are less than 8 registrations. In this case, the Alliance Française will make every effort to offer you an alternative.


What does A1, A2 mean? By clicking on this link, you will discover the meaning of each level: language levels

New students: We ask all new students to take a level test first. After this test you will know exactly what your level is and which French course is best for you.
If you are a beginner, you do not need to take a level test, you can enrol directly in an A1.1 course.
