FOR ADULTS
Alliance Française de Dhaka offers two kinds of approaches in providing French classes to adult learners. They are: (i) extensive approach and (ii) intensive approach.

Extensive Adults (aged 16+)
With this approach, your French classes will be organised twice a week during the 3-month sessions. Each level is usually covered in 4 sessions (for B2: 5 sessions) and leads to a highly reputable French diploma at the end of the year. Achieving each level will therefore require one year with this approach.
