Sharjah: Alliance Française, a prestigious institution to learn French, has inaugurated its new branch in Sharjah.
The emirate achieved this new cultural milestone after the Department of Government Relations (DGR) in Sharjah and the French Embassy in the UAE signed an agreement. It aimed to bring a new center to the emirate to enable schools and cultural institutions to benefit from the Alliance Française’s expertise in teaching the language.
The French Ambassador interacted with the school’s students and praised the role of the emirate’s official entities, most notably the DRG, in facilitating the establishment of Alliance Française Sharjah.
“As we become part of the Alliance Française network, we are enabling thousands of young students and language enthusiasts in the emirate to have seamless access to perhaps the most prestigious international teacher of the French language and culture,” Mr. Al Qasimi added.
The agreement to establish the Alliance Française Sharjah was signed in September 2022. The institution will enhance and develop a common professional culture. It will focus on fields like digital technology, entrepreneurship, and consultancy, in addition to teaching French.
Besides, it will support cultural activities in the emirate and offer opportunities to benefit from bilateral expertise in different sectors.
