So what is the Alliance Française anyway?
The Alliance Française is an international organization headquartered in Paris, that aims to promote French language and culture around the globe. Created in Paris in 1883, its primary focus is teaching French as an additional language while promoting cultural awareness and events pertaining to France as well as Francophone countries. In 2014, the Alliance has 850 centers in over 130 countries, on five continents.
A member supported non-profit organization, Alliance Française d’Atlanta (http://afatl.com/)is the French-American cultural center serving the Atlanta community as the premier provider of French language and culture since 1912.
Since 1963 the language school has been offering a variety of courses for individuals as well as businesses, including the CDC, CARE, the Carter Center and Delta Air Lines.
