Learn the language,

live the culture

The Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans offers a diverse cultural calendar from monthly Ciné-Club French movie nights, to an Advanced Book Club, Soirée Jeux game nights, to Meet and Greets and concerts. Learn skills with our cultural cooking and wine tasting workshops. We even offer events and workshops specifically geared towards children like our Petits Penseurs monthly workshops to storytime en français.

Focus on French

Most linguists agree that studying a language—especially in the beginning—requires daily practice and engagement with the target language. While the majority of our classes are one to two days per week, you can take advantage of our diverse cultural calendar by attending Meet and Greets, cinema nights, cooking workshops, game nights, and more—tout en français !

*As of March 2020, most cultural events are being held virtually.
Some events such as Ciné-Club, are being held safely,  outdoors at the Alliance.
Please email Events Coordinator, Joseph Pons for more information!*
