It takes about a year and approximately 120 hours of classes to cover the complete level and to finish the study of the A1 textbook.
At the end of the A1 level, you will be able to hold simple conversations, exchange some information about yourself and others, and talk about things that take place in the past and the future.
Please note that 101 classes are reserved for complete beginners: the pace of the course is slower than level 102. Level 102 is a good level to start with if you are a “false beginner” and have had some exposure to French in the past. However, please take a placement test and then do an oral evaluation with one of the directors, in order to ensure that you are in the appropriate level.
It takes about a year and approximately 135 hours of classes to cover the complete level and to finish the study of the A2 textbook.

Only the most advanced students participate in the C1 level Grammaire-Conversation class.
Advanced students have two levels of classes to choose from: B2 or C1. In addition, specialty workshops are offered during certain sessions.
The traditional Grammaire-Conversation classes are divided into two levels. Students who have just completed the Intermediate Advanced B1 level can continue in Grammaire-Conversation B2.
Half of the class is spent on grammar review/practice and the other is strictly conversation. No textbook necessary. Topics are selected by students and teacher. In the C1 level, students can register for both grammar AND conversation or for either one.
It takes about one year and approximately 135 hours of classes to cover the complete level and to finish the B1 textbook.
