Learning a new language takes time and patience, and it can feel frustrating. At the Alliance Française Amsterdam, we thrive to make your learning journey as efficient and as pleasant as possible. This is why most of our courses come with our online plateforme, Mon Alliance, where you can find lots of extra activities. We also have a rich cultural offer, so you can come to our events and practice your French with other learners and with French people.
