The Alliance Française is an educational organization with a nonprofit cultural goal. For over a century, it has been offering opportunities for people all around the world to discover French culture. Since 1883, the worldwide network has exposed several thousands of students from different origins to French civilization and language.
The Alliance Française has created an identity of its own and has thus been able to exist in 138 countries, with over a thousand local committees each endowed with a special and unique quality. This long-lasting experience and outstanding vitality are the result of tight links woven between the citizens and patrons in the various countries and the French State.
