The Alliance Française in world terms

Ever since 1883, on all five continents, the Alliance Française network has woven the bonds of friendship with 135 countries, and today welcomes more than half a million students to its 850 schools of French language and civilization.

The Alliance Française network is the most significant cultural, educational and linguistic network in the world.

The Alliance Française charter defines the quality of its teaching of French in these terms: teaching methods and education, a Literature and Resource Centre, customer relations, human resources, accounting and financial management, premises, and the management of cultural activities and governance.

The Alliances (813 Alliances across 136 countries) all share the same democratic values, respect for others and humanitarianism.

The Alliances Françaises in France are dedicated to welcoming non-French-speaking foreigners who are staying in France, and who wish to take French courses so as to gain access to the French way of life.
