Chers ami(e)s de l’Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad,

Dear friends of the Alliance Française of Ahmedabad,

Notre AF va accueillir début juillet Emmanuel LEBRUN-DAMIENS, le Conseiller de coopération et d’action culturelle (COCAC) et Directeur de l’Institut français d’Inde ainsi que Mme Alice GAUNY la Coordinatrice des Alliances françaises en Inde. Cette visite se fait dans le cadre de notre appartenance au réseau des Alliances Françaises et de notre rattachement à la diplomatie culturelle française, et plus spécifiquement à la préparation de la 4ème édition du festival Bonjour India début 2022. A cette occasion, M. Rahaab Allana (Conservateur de la Fondation Alkazi pour les Arts), présentera une sélection d’œuvres originales d’institutions françaises renommées comme le Musée Guimet, le Musée d’Orsay, le Centre Georges Pompidou et le Centre national d’arts plastiques (CNAP) représentant différentes « visions » du sous-continent indien, du XIXe siècle à nos jours. Parallèlement, l’AF d’Ahmedabad présentera les œuvres de M. Dalwadi, ancien président de l’AFA et illustre photographe de NID qui accompagna Cartier-Bresson lors de son périple nord-indien.

Our AF will welcome at the beginning of July Emmanuel LEBRUN-DAMIENS, the Counsellor for Education, Science and Culture (COCAC) and Country Director of the French Institute in India as well as Ms. Alice GAUNY, the Coordinator of the Alliance française’network in India. This visit takes place within the framework of our affiliation to the Alliances Françaises network in India and to French cultural diplomacy. This visit is also to prepare the 4th edition of the Bonjour India festival in early 2022. On this occasion, Mr. Rahaab Allana (Curator of the Alkazi Foundation for the Arts), will present a selection of original works from renowned French institutions such as the Guimet Museum, the Orsay Museum, the Center Georges Pompidou and the National Center for Plastic Arts (CNAP) representing different "visions" of the Indian subcontinent, from the 19th century to the present day. At the same time, AFA Ahmedabad will present the works of Mr. Dalwadi, former AFA’s President and illustrious NID photographer who accompanied Cartier-Bresson on his North Indian journey.

Les bureaux ont réouvert et nous espérons bientôt pouvoir accueillir de nouveau des étudiants dans nos locaux. Nos professeurs se forment à l’enseignement comodal avec des étudiants en ligne et dans les classes simultanément. Notre coordinateur culturel Harshal Shukla repartira dans sa carrière artistique de musicien et sera remplacé par Amol Dave.

The offices have reopened and we hope to soon be able to welcome students back to our premises. Our teachers train in co-modal teaching with students online and in class simultaneously. Our cultural coordinator Harshal Shukla will resume his artistic career as a musician and will be replaced by Amol Dave.

Testimonials I am glad that my friend suggested ‘Alliance Française – Baroda Branch’ to me for learning French. Despite the current situation in the city, the classes were conducted regularly and without any difficulties. I really appreciate the method of teaching at Alliance and I must say they have really organised their syllabus in a very sophisticated way. Apart from the Books, many kinds of practical techniques were used to explain certain concepts and that really helped to remember little things while reading, speaking, writing and even listening. The learning experience has been amazing and one of the best things for me during the course was Dialogue speaking amongst the class. I would certainly suggest this Institute to any other person who wants to learn the language. Milin Thakkar, A2 Crash - AFA Baroda Branch
