Bonjour, New Classes

French language center Alliance Francaise of Greenwich has recently added a French after-school program for children ages 6-12. Supported by the center’s innovative learning method, “Et Toi,” students will achieve a cultural and linguistic background in French as they review grammar and learn communication skills, in addition to interacting, reading, singing and having fun with the French language. Classes meet once a week for an hour and a half.

Beginning March 9, the center will have an SAT II French preparation class for students planning to take the SAT II French Subjects Test or French Subject Test with Listening. Classes meet for two hours twice a week. The course focuses on grammar review, vocabulary, idioms and false cognates. Students take sample tests and learn test-taking strategies. For more information on these programs or any of the center’s other classes, call 203-629-1340 or visit
