Classes for Native Speakers for ages 4-17.

Classes for French as a Foreign Language for ages 5-15

EFA is a non-profit association whose mission is to offer French classes to students who do not attend French immersion schools. The association was formed in 2011 by a group of French families who wanted some formal education in French for their children, who attend Austin-area public schools. The goal was to help children master reading and writing, either to be prepared to return to school in France or simply to support their skills in French.

From this beginning, EFA has grown into an organization dedicated to teaching French to all. In addition to classes for children of native speakers (FLAM – français langue maternelle) we offer beginning French classes (FLE – français langue étrangère) to students of all backgrounds.
