The French commission of the BAAM organizes free French classes in Paris and its suburbs. Classes are held in various places such as public libraries, cultural centers and on the street. Depending on the context and needs, our work takes the form of literacy classes, French language course and conversation workshops in pair with a French speaker, or “Tandems linguistiques”.

You’re welcome to join any of our classes with still room for new students!

You speak and write French?

Over sixteen weekly classes are now taught in Paris and its suburbs, trying to fill a growing and complex demand.

We are always looking for facilities and teaching materials (notebook, pens, veledas). We are looking for motivated volunteers to give French lessons and literacy, and support us in the development and coordination of the project.

Conversation workshops

Volunteers at the BAAM can connect migrants with French speakers in pairs to form conversation tandems, so they can practice French and talk about life in France. The BAAM has already formed more than 200 tandems since October 2016!
