The Alliance franšaise is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to promote French language and culture outside France. Its primary concern is teaching French as a second language. It is headquartered in Paris.
It finances most of its activities from the fees it receives from its courses and from rental of its installations. The French government also provides a subsidy covering approximately five per cent of its budget. (This amounted to nearly 665,000 euros in 2003.)
Close to 400,000 students learn French at one of centres run by the Alliance, whose network of schools includes:
- a centre in Paris
- locations throughout France, which receive foreign students
- 1000 locations in 131 different countries
