The first Alliance française centre
in Seoul was created in Hoehyeon in 1964, in the heart of the capital city, and
then a second centre opened in Gangnam in 1985. As a non-profit making school
that offers French language and civilisation courses, Alliance française caters
for learners with cultural, professional or touristic interests.
Alliance française de Séoul
boasts over 5,000 registrations every year and stands as the unquestionable
landmark for the teaching of French as a foreign language in the Capital.
Alliance française de Séoul is
governed by local law and has signed an agreement with the Foundation Alliance
française in Paris and the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
Under the aegis of the Embassy
of France in Korea, Alliance française de Séoul organises sessions of internationally
recognized examinations and tests of French as a foreign language from the
French Ministry of National Education (DELF, DALF and TCF).
