Since February 2013, a new chapter has been opened : The Dante Institute of Coral Gables is proud to introduce the new French Division. The new division’s aim is to enable students a quick and effective introduction to the French language right from the very first lesson. As for the Italian and the German divisions, we use the latest and most efficient learning methods, with authentic and original texts, and through the most advanced audiovisual equipment. Each session is driven by specific goals and themes, conducted by qualified and experienced native French teachers, in order to increase students’ communication skills and cultural background in French, regardless of their age or level.

Our classes (usually 2 hours long) are scheduled in two different sessions, depending on their intensity: Regular (once a week) or Accelerated (twice a week). So that students can learn at their own pace and according to their own level. Each session consists of 16 hours, covering 2 lessons of the books. The Regular session usually lasts 8 weeks, the Accelerated one 4 weeks. In addition, we propose private tutoring classes at the Dante or on site, tailored to your needs.

Each class follows the Common European Framework Reference of Language, which is common to all the languages taught at the Dante Alighieri Institute: Beginner level (A1-A2), Intermediate level (B1), Advanced level (B2), and Conversation (Expert) level (C1-C2). We have also a Civilization, a French literature and a History of France programs.

The price of the 16 hour session is $ 380.00 (+ $ 75.00 for the books).

Some cultural events, all free of charge, are also featured:

Other events will also include the Fête de la musique, Bastille Day, Beaujolais nouveau, History of France, Saint Valentin song and film screenings. These events are open to French and non-French speaking audience from the Miami area.
