CULTURAL  events

L'Alliance Française du Manitoba is more than a school!

The Alliance Française du Manitoba organises many cultural events on a monthly basis: concerts, movie screenings, Spoken Word and traditional French events (Le Beaujolais Nouveau, Bastille Day Celebration...). These all contribute to a very dynamic and eclectic program that will appeal to anyone who likes French culture or wants to learn more about it. These events also allow our students to immerse themselves in all aspects of French culture and practice their French.
