Study French as a foreign language

Explorer School offers online courses in French as Foreign Language (FFL) structured and aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). 


ES is designed to stick to your needs, your skills and your abilities. You are going to learn everything that is needed in close collaboration with our qualified teachers who have your success in learning their mother tongue at heart.


1. French is spoken by over 280 million people in the world.

2. There are over 65 million speakers in France alone.

3. French is officially spoken in 57 countries and majorly practiced and learnt in 30 other countries of the world. 


The research that led to the creation of the CEFRL has identified different levels adjusted for various situations in Francophone linguistic and cultural knowledge.

CEFRL provides the following levels:

Beginner: A1 – A2
Intermediate: B1 – B2
Advanced: C1 – C2

Pricing is indicated as a month price, which includes 4 weeks of training.


If you have learnt French before, there is a compulsory placement test : $10


If you haven’t, hit the « no » button when you apply.


Everything will be done for your group to correspond to your exact level.
