"My son and I have found Alliance Francaise to be an active group meeting regularly with programs/lectures in either French or English, wine tastings, receptions in homes with a French theme and delicious food. We love that everyone is so welcoming, engaging and with a shared camaraderie in all things French."

"I was born and raised in Quebec and I have been a member of the Alliance Française of Birmingham since 1994. I particularly love the activities and I have made some of my best friendships there. I always look forward to the activities and I encourage everyone interested in the French culture to join. You’ll meet people from all over the world."

"I am captivated by "all things French" so meeting like minded people is rewarding as is attending monthly AF programs. My passion is trying to improve my French speaking skills so I joined the National Apéro conversation group which uses Zoom."
