Alliance Francaise de Providence
Alliance Francaise de Providence was founded in 1901 to spread the breadth and knowledge of French-speaking cultures throughout the Providence community through private and public language classes. Since then, it has expanded its repertoire to include Spanish-language instruction, French cooking classes for kids, and cultural workshops that focus on artistic and social topics such as poetry and films so that students can prepare to battle gangs of critics. By immersing small classes in each language's culture, native French and Spanish speakers teach tongues to pronounce the subtle syllabic nuances of each language.
English as a Second Language (ESL) classes reverse the process, helping French tongues to articulate English phonemes and colloquial phrases such as "He's barking up the wrong tree" and "There's a rabid badger on the loose." The alliance's events for adults and children, specialized club, and French library, which boasts more than 2,000 books and 100 French movies and magazines, keep students involved and immersed in culture.
