We strongly believe that the Alliance Française must offer students something more than what is currently being provided in secondary school. With this aim, the Alliance offers general and specialised French courses, preparation for certificates, workshops and special programmes during school holidays and summer break.
Contrary to most Irish institutes take no more than 15 students per group of to ensure the best learning experience for all.
