Every week, the Alliance Française offers some events and workshops that allow to learn and practice French in a different way. Conversation, cinema, grammar, yoga or even philosophy, there is something for everyone, every level, every taste (and every budget!)
Apéro Français - Online
Once a month - Wednesdays- 5:30PM
It is not because we cannot meet at the Sofitel that we should not have a happy hour and speak French together.
Join us via Zoom on Wednesday at 5:30PM with something to drink and your happy mood. We will speak French with you and play some games to have a great time!
Don’t hesitate ! Even if you are learning French for not a very long time, please connect you, it’s a great way to practice your French.
Newsroom - Online

Every week, join the Newsroom and talk about topical subjects. In a friendly atmosphere, we will discuss recent events happening around the world.

De l'Art! A conversation based on art - Online - back soon!
Every week - Mondays - 3:30PM $15 - Intermediate level.
Interested in Art but all your wine and paint activities have been cancelled due to the pandemic?
We've got you covered! This class is designed as an immersion for intermediate levels. Although a few structures and useful words will be provided during each session, the focus is conversation. In this class, we will describe and analyze Impressionist art and learn about a different artist each week. Come just this once to quench your Matisse thirst or come every week to acquire structures through repetition, the choice is yours.
With Paulina - will be back soon!
Grammar Boot Camp - Online
Every month - 1 theme, 2 sessions! $50 for both classes
Levels offered: Intermediate and Advanced
Rejoignez-nous pour une plongée en douceur, et en deux parties, dans les eaux profondes de la grammaire, conjugaison et syntaxe française !
En long et en large...
Une session composée de deux classes, pour explorer, revisiter et approfondir vos connaissances. Nous mélangerons théorie et pratique. Des
devoirs entre les sessions vous aideront à renforcer vos nouvelles connaissances. L’opportunité vous sera donnée d’aller plus loin à la fin
des deux parties.
