June is Pétanque Month !


   AF Pétanque is back in town, on Sunday June 9 from 4pm to 6pm. Whether you are a seasoned player, or an absolute beginner, you’ll have fun playing this easy-going, family friendly typical summer activity from Sunny South of France. Similar to Bocce game, with super-simple rules, pétanque is a crowd-pleasing pass time, that pairs well with cold beer or the traditional anis-based drink called Pastis.


Pompilio’s Restaurant & Bar,
600 Washington St,
Newport KY.

Teacher of the Month : Dorothée Dufour

We recognize Dorothee for the support and great work she does for our institute. She teaches in several schools during the week and is always ready to sub for whoever is absent. She drives many miles to serve our students. She has been with us for five years, her commitment to teaching French for the Alliance Française Institute is greatly appreciated. Merci Dorothée !

So many ways to learn!

We have put together new and exiting ways to learn and practice French: Our regular classes for all levels, all ages continue, and we have added a new Theater class, led by French Artist Aimée Langrée.
