Our story

What do we do?

The Alliance Française of Potchefstroom teach online and face-to-face French and Setswana courses for adults, teenagers and kids. Our classes focus on all four language competencies: listening (and understanding), speaking, reading, and writing.

We also organise cultural events to create an environment for French speakers to meet – such as French coffee events, film nights, concerts, exhibitions and other activities.

About the Alliance Française

The Alliance Française was established in Paris in 1883 by eminent figures of the arts, the sciences, and politics to ensure the influence of the French language and culture around the world.

The Alliance Française of Potchefstroom was created in 1971 and is a French language and cultural organisation in Potchefstroom. We cooperate with the French department of the North-West University, the larger Alliance Française group and the French Embassy.
