Group Courses

French Courses in groups for adults, teenagers & children

We need at least 6 students to set up a group and take no more than 15 per group of adults & teenagers (12 for conversation classes), and 12 for children, to ensure the best learning experience for all.

New students

Students enrolling for the first time need an assessment. This is an essential procedure to discuss your needs with us and ensure that you are assigned to the type of course and level which suits you best. Booking is required and assessments cost Rs 1,000. Please contact our Headmistress, Ms. Shemara PANDITHARATNE at language.afkandy@gmail.com

Please note that complete beginners and children do not need to be assessed. During registration, please bring two passport size photographs for your student ID.

Returning students

Students already with the Alliance Française may progress automatically to the next level unless told otherwise during the free end-of-term assessment. In order to preserve the quality of its courses, the Alliance Française Kandy reserves the right to ask students to move to, or repeat, an earlier level.


All fees are payable in full at the time of enrolment. Payments should be made to the bank . (refer application form)

10% discount is available (on presentation of relevant documentation) to :

  • 10% for retired and AFK members

Class Activities

Through lively and stimulating activities, children of primary school age build up a broad and lasting knowledge of the French language. Classes closely follow children's development and abilities. Our communicative approach ensures that every child is given ample opportunity to actually speak French.

Activities are varied and stimulating and include a range of fun activities suited to the various age groups, such as role-plays, mimes, songs, arts and crafts, board games and team projects. A variety of material is also used in class, such as pictures, audio and video materials. While vocabulary is important, we also aim to give children the communicative skills that will enable them to express themselves in French.

Class rules

Despite the playful nature of our courses, certain rules need to be followed so that class-time is productive and enjoyable:

  • Children should bring a special French copy to class every week and also a pencil case with markers, crayons or colour pencils, a pencil, a rubber, a ruler, a pair of scissors and a stick of glue.
  • Children should behave in a manner conducive to learning and be respectful to their teacher.
