I'm an adult and have been taking classes at the Alliance Francaise in Berkeley for quite some time. Classes are small (8 max.) and congenial. The teachers are native French speakers and very nice. The students tend to be adults, though. I think a teenager would have a good time if they got one or two other teenagers to enroll in the class with them. The Alliance also has monthly conversation evenings, movie evenings, and an occasional interesting lecture, all in French. You don't have to be enrolled in a class to attend them.
