The Alliance Française du Cap is an independent, not-for-profit language and cultural organisation promoting Franco-South African exchange since 1959. With an ambitious mission to spread the French language and culture well beyond the borders of France, it forms part of a network of 1040 Alliances Françaises based in 136 countries all over the world.

Situated in a superb space in the heart of the city, the Alliance Française du Cap is a South African non-profit organisation founded in 1959. Its principal aim is to promote French language and francophone culture within the greater framework of intercultural exchanges between France, Francophone countries and South Africa. Furthermore, it is an apolitical and non-denominational body that is linked to the network of the Fondation Alliance Française in Paris whose origins date back to 1883. The Alliance Française du Cap is supported by the French Embassy in South Africa and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The “Café de l’Alliance” is a great place to relax and socialise for students and public alike. Enjoy a cup of coffee anytime or indulge in traditional French cuisine in a bistro setting during our events.
