Dear France lovers,
As many of you know, French Affaires is a cultural and educational organization dedicated to making France feel like "the country next door." Our goal is to bring wonderful parts of France to the U.S. and to help people plan very rewarding stays in France.
We do this all year long through a variety of cultural events, language classes, travel lectures, guest speakers, food & wine tastings, culinary workshops, personalized trip planning, trips to France, along with French Affaires articles on various parts of French culture. We also make a point of partnering with all sorts of French-related organizations, businesses and institutions in order to bring the richest and most authentic programs to life. And one of the biggest benefits of French Affaires' programming has been the coming together of an incredible community of people who love France and French culture.
