A dynamic back to school!

 

Benefiting from more spacious classrooms in the new Alliance Française, the teaching team is eager to introduce students to their new learning spaces.

The rooms, located on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors, are more spacious. They open onto an atrium that offers spaces for conviviality to relax or study before or after classes. Note that the grand staircase from the ground floor can also serve as a place for study and relaxation, as half of it is configured as an amphitheater with cushions for comfort.

The children’s rooms will also be redesigned, and in particular we are creating a room for the little ones to express their gross motor skills and general mobility, as we want to give them a new option more adapted to their needs.

In short, an ideal place to learn French or Thai in an environment that is both studious and friendly!

The next class will begin on July 27th. Feel free to ask your questions here: info.bangkok@afthailande.org

An eclectic and innovative cultural agenda

Bigger and more modern, the new Alliance Française Bangkok is already raising a lot of enthusiasm from culture lovers who are eager to discover its new spaces dedicated to art and culture.

 

What can you tell us about the new spaces dedicated to cultural events?

The new auditorium is great! It offers the public a better acoustics and a better quality of viewing thanks to a very high ceiling. It has more seats and a larger stage. The design is very modern and elegant thanks to the timber panels on the wall.

The space for exhibitions is more open and brighter. Through the use of mobile panels, the exhibitions will be more flexible and interactive. Located on the ground floor, the space is also more visible and more accessible.

 

How will cultural events be more attractive?

Alliance Française continues to position itself as a key player on the cultural scene of Bangkok. The new building offers larger, better and more suitable spaces. The cultural agenda will be even more creative and we will develop more digital activities (virtual reality, augmented reality, video games …). Regular contests will also be organized. A new pricing policy will offer the possibility to subscribe to attractive monthly subscriptions. New partnerships will be developed with Embassies, institutions, public and private partners.

 

What words would you use to describe the upcoming cultural events?

Eclectic, innovative, multidisciplinary and suitable to all audiences, adults and children, professionals and students.
