Course Prerequisites

Thinking of joining one of our courses?


Learning a new language at any stage of adulthood, old age included, is extremely good for improving and maintaining the memory generally.

"Because it requires intense focus, studying a new language turns on the control system for plasticity and keeps it in good shape for laying down sharp memories of all kinds. You will gradually sharpen everything up again, and that will be very highly benefical to you." 
    From "The Brain That Changes Itself" (Author: Merzenich)

Thank you for showing an interest in our courses.

Read on to see details of the prerequisites required for each of our various class levels.

Past Students' Comments

005 Annick and her students "I have been studying French with AFCDN for two years. I really look forward to our Tuesday night class - it's a real highlight in my week! This is easily the most enjoyable and rewarding experience that I have had learning another language. The classes are small and can meet the needs of each student, and relaxed - each of us feels very comfortable 'testing out' our new language skills.
Our teacher is wonderful - fun, dynamic and able to use her extensive teaching experience, and French upbringing, to deepen our understanding of the French language and culture. I consider myself very lucky to have found a great teacher and class."
