Field trips

Let your students experience French for a day at the Alliance Française de Chicago!

Teachers or group organizers can take their students to France without leaving the country with a Field Trip at the Alliance Française de Chicago.

Teachers may choose from the two following field trip formulas:

Le Simple
One 2-hour activity

Le Double
Two 2-hour activities

Activities can be conducted in French or English based on the proficiency of the group.
The program can also be adapted depending on your group's needs.


Atelier Cuisine
Guided by Alliance Française de Chicago culinary instructors, you will work in small groups to prepare one of our simple and delicious menus. Recipes and instructions are provided in French and in English.

Atelier Cinéma
We possess a wonderful collection of short and full length films, from comedies to moving documentaries and more! We use these films as catalysts for cultural, historical and language talks.
