French at the Alliance Française

The Alliance Française was founded in 1883 and currently works in 133 countries, operating over 800 institutions, including 118 in the United States.. Their mission is to “promote and disseminate the French language and Francophone cultures throughout the world.”
The Alliance Française works towards three essential tasks:
  • Offering French classes for all, both in France and abroad
  • Spreading awareness of French and Francophone culture
  • Promoting cultural diversity.

With Lifelong Learning Abroad Paris at the Alliance Française, you will take nine hours of French instruction, three days a week.   An online placement exam will determine exactly what level you require, whether you are a beginner or already have a high level of French. For those feeling more ambitious, you can sign up for twenty hours of Intensive French for a supplement.
All Alliance Française professors are certified to teach French as a second language and are experienced language teachers.  The average class at the Alliance Française has twelve students.

Everyone enrolled at theAlliance Française with Lifelong Learning Abroad Paris will receive the Alliance Française’s, “Culture Pass.”   This card provides you with unique cultural opportunities at museums, theaters, cinemas, and other such venues - and often at reduced fares.  TheAlliance Française also offers free activities to card holders.  Enrollment includes the Alliance Française Book Kit, the books you will need for your class.
