Alliance Française de Katmandou: Since its creation in 1994, Alliance Française de Kathmandu has been providing French language classes within and outside its premises as well as international exams. It organises cultural events regularly and has a library and a cafeteria. It also offers translation and interpreting services.
Alliance Françaises also differs from cultural organisations in other countries by a particular mission: promoting, not only the culture of a country, but the “cultural diversity.” In a global world where the ways of life and the ways of thinking tend to standardized, where culture finally becomes a marketable product like any other, the Alliances Françaises continue to offer a cultural alternative.
