Welcome to the alliance française

For nearly 100 years Alliance Française d’Omaha is committed to supporting, educating and nourishing our community through cultural and educational programs.  We dedicate our efforts toward three essential goals:

  • Spreading awareness of French and Francophone culture

  • Offering French language classes for all

  • Promoting cultural diversity

 Consider joining the AFO!  Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend our events.

 

JOIN US FOR L’APÉRO OF THE ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF each month, 5:30-7:30 P.M.

In case you haven’t heard, this is an occasion to relax once a month with  your fellow Omaha francophiles. “Apéro” is short for “Aperitif”, French for cocktail! Venez tous! Your French speaking skills will be on display, but be assured that ALL levels of fluency are welcome.

Mark your calendar! Our next Apéro will take place on Thursday, June 13th. Stay tunes for the location TBA. Join us for fun, friendship, and conversation en Français! Nous espérons vous y voir!

No admission fee or reservation required.

Fondation Alliance Française

The Alliance Française was created in Paris in 1883 and is the leading cultural network worldwide, with 850 chapters in 136 countries on all five continents. It is a non-profit organization with no political or religious ties.  The Federation of Alliances Françaises USA serves as a bridge between the Alliances in the United States and the Fondation Alliance Française in Paris.  In Omaha, our chapter fosters the historical friendship between the United States and France; and the sustained mission we share: to support French language and French speaking cultures as they are practiced around the globe.
