Every week, the Alliance Française offers some events and workshops that allow to learn and practice French in a different way.  Conversation, cinema, poetry or even philosophy, there is something for everyone, every level, every taste. 

Apéro Français - Online

Every other week - Wednesday - 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.
