As of March 1, 2022, wearing masks is no longer mandatory for guests while at Alliance Française of Calgary. We recognize that there are varying levels of comfort with these changes. We respect everyone's right to make this personal choice, and appreciate that some students and staff may prefer to continue face coverings. Please be kind and respectful of the personal choices of those around you.

From Our Students

I am having the best learning experience with AF Calgary! The instructors are excellent, the staff is very welcoming and kind, and both in-person and online classes are great.

AF Calgary is a great space not only to learn the French language but also to meet people and have interesting conversations. The friendly staff are passionate about what they do...


The AF has been a second home for me since I moved to Calgary. The teachers and staff are so knowledgeable and friendly...
