What we're about

Do you hum "la Marseillaise" in the shower? Is wearing a "béret" "de rigueur"? Or is your French a little rusty? Speakers at all fluency levels are welcome. Attend any of our many events and enjoy the camaraderie of French-speaking people in Chicago's northern suburbs. Il y en aura pour tous les goûts !

We are a chapter of the cultural and educational not-for-profit Alliance Française organization, a worldwide network of chapters that seek to educate members about francophone cultures, language, history and literature. Visit our website for more details: .
