The Alliances Françaises network
The Alliance Française was created in 1883 in Paris under the aegis of Paul Cambon and Pierre Foncin, around personalities such as
Jules Verne, Louis Pasteur, Ferdinand de Lesseps, Armand Colin and Ernest Renan.
Today, it is the largest network of language and cultural centers in the world, with over 800 Alliances in 132 countries on all five continents.
Each year, over 500,000 students of all ages, attend Alliances Françaises to learn French and more than 6 million people participate in
their cultural activities. The network is coordinated by the Alliance Française Foundation in Paris.
The Alliance Française network in the United States is the largest in terms of the total number of chapters.
The U.S. network currently has 110 chapters, 76 of which offer French classes, 26,000 students/year and over 1,000 events.
What is an Alliance Française?
Each Alliance Française is governed locally and is operated as an independant, non-profit, non-political, non-discriminatory organization.
Alliances Françaises work towards three essential tasks:
- Offering French classes for all, both in France and abroad
- Spreading awareness of French and Francophone cultures
- Promoting cultural diversity
