A shared mission within the largest cultural network in the world:
to teach French to all audiences to disseminate French and Francophone cultures promote cultural diversity
The Alliance Française’s reputation is based on the ever-renewed loyalty of a foreign public that is always passionate about the French language. With an identity that is recognized throughout the world, and the quality of its teaching, the Alliance Française has developed a network of over a thousand local associations, each with its own personality.
A pioneer in the field of teaching French to foreigners, the Alliance Française relies on pedagogical practices that take into account the mother tongue and the learning styles of each audience. These methods combine a classical approach with an openness to new modes of communication.
It uses new technologies, develops numerous partnerships and diversifies its services in an action-oriented and communicative approach.
Today, the Alliance Française is undoubtedly a reference in the field of teaching French as a foreign language.
The Alliance Française’s pedagogical mission is closely linked to its active involvement in the cultural field. Thus, the Alliances base their identity on the networking of the French language and creation, but also on the permanent mixing of audiences. A language is fully alive when it is shared.
