It’s been a long time since we last saw you in March and we’ve missed you! We hope you can join us in this virtual space over the next week as we open our doors… First, we will show you around our online classes to meet students and teachers and check out our Outreach Class of 2020 celebration... In the days to come you will also be able to discover our cultural programs; visit with our mediathèque community; check out our Chez Kids Academy, all part of the Alliance’s experience...… Bienvenue!


Cultural Programs 

Before the pandemic you came from around Chicago to meet authors, artists, and performers in our auditorium; enjoy a wine tasting in our kitchen; or appraise a new exhibition in our salon. Now that our programs have moved online you come from all over the country… and beyond! This is our new meeting place. Check out what we have to offer and remember: we are the place for all things French! With many programs in English too...


Kids & Teens

Our teachers and staff have been missing our students in the Alliance buildings, and have enjoyed online classes and our current Summer Camp. Did you can still join our online Summer Camp for 6-12 year olds? Join us July 6 – July 31 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. See how been getting ready so that we can welcome you all again this Fall. We are looking forward to seeing you all soon!



A lot happened since classes went online this spring. Nobody is running late because of public transport or bad weather. It doesn’t matter anymore if you have moved to St. Louis or Seattle because it's lovely to see you back with your friends from French class! Now you can easily engage in l’art de la conversation from the comfort of your home and through the magic of Zoom. Still so French! Check out what students say about our online classes.



How do you celebrate a graduation during a pandemic? The Class of 2020 from the Alliance Educational Outreach program went creative with a first ever virtual "Au Revoir" party! Join the fun and hear what they have to say… This is the 22nd graduation for our afterschool French language/culture enrichment program in partnership with Chicago Public Schools.
