What do we do?
The Alliance Française de Brisbane is part of an international network that promotes French language and culture. We provide extensive services as a language school, and as a producer and promoter of cultural events.
The Alliance Française de Brisbane is the welcoming hub and the key location for teaching and learning French language, and for promoting French culture in Brisbane.
It will be the organisation of choice for French-related educational, social and cultural events, and recognised as such by the public, by the cultural, educational and business communities, and by the government.
“The Alliance Française de Brisbane Inc. encourages and promotes French language and culture among the Australian and Francophone communities by
· providing an educational centre for language, social and cultural activities
· promoting a spirit of intercultural cooperation and understanding
· increasing continued active involvement and participant satisfaction.”
French Language School
As a language school, we currently provide an extensive range of French language courses delivered through structured classes, specialised workshops, and tailored courses for companies, schools, etc. All aspects of the courses are designed and presented by qualified educators.
We offer access to a comprehensive range of qualifications and certificates; all in accordance with the tests and diplomas that are designed, maintained and administered by the French government organisation: the Centre international d’études pédagogiques. These tests and diplomas are recognised for the French language throughout Europe, are often required to be able to gain employment in France or to enter a French University as they are the established measures of French language proficiency. The DELF and the DALF are internationally recognised and follow the Common European Framework for Languages.
French Cultural Centre
In our role as a cultural centre, we produce and promote cultural events such as the French Film Festival, concerts, performances and exhibitions throughout the year.
We have a professional team who produce our own events, and who are experienced in working within partnerships with local and national organisations, touring artists and French commercial and governmental cultural organisations in the production and promotion of the major events.
Being a large scale and highly active chapter of the Alliance Française network, Brisbane benefits from the provision of a director appointed by the Alliance Française Foundation and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The current director is Frantz Benhayoun, who brings a wealth of experience in arts and education management and production, as well as institutional contacts with French cultural organisations, the French Embassy in Australia and the Education Attaché.
Alliance Française de Brisbane is working in partnership with local government and cultural organisations, local and national companies and the community to promote an energetic and interactive access to contemporary French culture in Brisbane. In addition, the organisation enjoys extensive interaction with local communities, businesses and governments through its management committee.
