Why learning French at the Alliance

With over 220 million speakers today on every continent, French is set to become the 4th most widely-spoken language in 2050

Come to the Alliance française de Port-Elizabeth and take part in our creative workshops and activities related to French literature. You will have the opportunity to meet a passionate teacher who will reveal the secrets of writing to you.

The objectives of the French literature workshop are to read and analyze literary texts, explaining their linguistic characteristics (grammatical structures, vocabulary, etc.) and studying their meanings. This teaching also gives the opportunity to discuss French culture and society.
