Message from the President

Shopping at a market in Provence

Chers amis,

The first time I walked into a classroom at the Alliance Française, I was terrified.

Would I fail to recall any of the French I learned years ago in college? Make an embarrassing faux pas? Forget to roll my rrrr’s? What if I couldn’t understand the teacher? (Sound familiar?)

Turns out I had nothing to fear. At the Alliance, I found a warm, welcoming community of people like me who love all things French. I forged special friendships with fellow students, members, teachers, and staff.

Et oui, along the way, I polished my French, discovered the culture and traditions of the francophone world, and ate my share of crêpes.

For me, our unique community – our “alliance” – is what makes the Alliance Française so special.

If you feel the same way, please join me in supporting the Alliance on the Big Day of Giving. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on donations in addition to registration fees to fund our educational and cultural programs.
