5) How do I become a member of the AFKC?
Membership is now required for class registration.  Click here for membership details and options. Start your registration and then pay online or pay by check by selecting the "invoice me" option.  Once you have become a member and are logged into your account, you may register for classes, but you may also pay for your membership and class at the same time on the class registration pages.  Once you have paid for class and membership, please go through the steps to become a member and select the "invoice me" option and the coordinator will adjust the balance due. 

6) What textbook is used and how can I get one?
The AFKC uses Latitudes 1 (for 101-103), Latitudes 2 (for 201-203). Please see class details for ISBN, students must purchase their books on their own, which are available on Amazon.com.

7) How is my class level determined?
If you have no background in French, then you should enroll in French 101.
A placement exam is not required and students are welcome to register for whichever level they prefer, but a teacher may make a suggestion to move up or down if they think it's appropriate.  If you have taken any French in the past and you're not sure what level you should enroll in, contact the learning center coordinator at jwallace@afkc.org. 

8) What if I am in the wrong class level?
If you feel you have been placed in or have selected the incorrect class level please talk to your teacher and contact Jessica Wallace at jwallace@afkc.org. The AFKC’s School Coordinator will work with you to get you into the class that is best for you.

9) What if my level is not offered due to low enrollment?
A class level must be canceled because the minimum number of students (4) is not met. When this happens, you may choose to try another class level or to receive a full refund.

10) Who will my teacher be?
The AFKC employs native or near-native level speakers of French with a strong teaching background. Teacher placement is not determined until it is clear which classes will be held or not due to enrollment numbers, but if you would like to know your teacher's name in advance, contact Jessica at jwallace@afkc.org.

11) What is your refund policy?
Contact jwallace@afkc.org if you would like to receive a reimbursement for class.  Full refunds are available until before the second class of the session. After the first class, reimbursements will be pro-rated based on the number of classes attended.

*As a non-profit organization focused on providing the community with affordable opportunities to learn French, we strive to keep prices low for our students.  Please be conscientious of our class minimum and the ability of AFKC to cover class costs (primarily teacher pay) if enrollment drops below 4 students.  If you are not sure whether you can commit to the full session, please contact the coordinator for possible options to take a partial class.

12) Whom do I contact if I other questions about AFKC French classes?
Jessica Wallace is the Language Center Coordinator and can be reached at jwallace@afkc.org

We hope to see you at the next class session!
