The Alliance Française is an international organisation with branches in many countries all over the world.
Its aim is to promote the French Language and Culture.
The York branch, affiliated to the ‘Federation Britannique des Alliances Française’ (AF UK) was established in 1994 and is a registered charity.
In York, the Alliance promotes the following activities:
· Our regular monthly meetings take the form of illustrated talks in French on topics of general, cultural and current interest, or the showing of French Films.
· Social events, or soirees, are also organised to promote social gathering of Francophones and Francophiles alike.
· Special events, like the ‘Bastille Day’ at Ryedale Folk Museum, are the perfect opportunity to meet new people, to experience aspects of French culture in a fun way.
French Language Classes:
· All our classes are led by native French speakers. Courses are offered at all levels, from beginners to advanced and run during the day or in the evenings.
· We also offer 1-2-1 tuitions that are tailor-made to suit the specific requirements / needs of our learners whether preparing for a job interview, a French exam at school, or a move to a French speaking country.
· Business French and intensive courses can be arranged on request.
From October 09, we hope to run 2 new projects: a ‘French Drama Group’ and a ‘French Choir’.
We are also looking into ‘French for mums and toddlers’.
