The French Alliance (Alliance Française de Houston) 
was founded in 1923, and is the center of
French language and culture in Houston.


The Alliance Française de Houston, part of a worldwide network founded in Paris in 1883, is a privately funded 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  There exist today over 800 Alliances in 132 countries. The US network of Alliances Françaises is the largest in the world with 107 Alliances, 73 of which, like Alliance Française de Houston, offer French classes based on the internationally recognized standards of the Alliance Française de Paris. In 2015, the US Alliance network had over 24,000 students for a total of 500,000 worldwide.
The Alliance Française de Houston offers not only comprehensive language instruction in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, but also a varied and dynamic cultural experience. Members enjoy French art and photography exhibits, receptions and concerts, and have access to our library , as well as discounts on our French language classes.  Each year, the Alliance awards scholarships for study in France to Houston-area university students.  We are affiliated with the Alliance Française de Paris,  the Fondation Alliance Française, the Federation of Alliance Françaises USA and the US Délégation Générale.
