THE MISSION of the Alliance Française de Providence is to promote and foster interest in the French language and culture, and to make the literature, history, and social life of France and all French-speaking countries better known in the state of Rhode Island.
As a community center, the Alliance aims to create strong ties with our American friends
and our 300 members through cultural and social programs.
In our language center, we offer French classes at all levels in individual and group settings for adults and children alike. In the spirit of international openness, we also welcome students of Spanish, Italian, Arabic, and Haitian Creole. All teaching is conducted by native speakers.
The Alliance Française de Providence is an independently managed and financed not-for-profit Rhode Island corporation.
