Cultural Immersion


At the Alliance Française, learning French goes hand in hand with discovering the culture of the French-speaking world. You have exclusive access to cultural resources and you can take part in cultural events as you continue learning French.

Culturethèque (“CultureLibrary”) is a digital library offered when you enrol a course with us! It can be accessed via a computer or a mobile telephone anywhere in Belgium. Using this portal, you can consult e-books, audio books in simple French, press titles, comic books… and much more!
