The Institut Français de Birmanie – French Institute (former Alliance Française) created in 1961, has been offering French classes to adults and young learners for 55 years and has developed the best expertise in teaching French in Myanmar. We have the richest French course catalog available, from great beginner levels to expert levels, from general French classes to specialized ones (French for Tourism, Business and more). 

IFB also offers Myanmar language courses and became quickly the first language center for Myanmar language in Yangon.

IFB students have the possibility to join clubs (theater, poetry, drama, singing,) to practice French while having fun. The library proposes a wide range of books, magazines, DVDs and CDs in French to help the students and the general public to grasp the French culture thanks to different media.
Since 2013 IFB runs a translation and interpretation committee accredited by the Embassy of France in Myanmar.


Located in an exceptional compound in the heart of Yangon, IFB is a multipurpose place for culture and art with a lecture/exhibition room, big gardens, a cafeteria space, a small stage and a big stage in dry season.
Its ambition is to remain a place for creation and cross-cultural encounters for Myanmar and francophone artists. Our cultural centre offers a steady artistic program with cultural events all year long, in a huge variety of fields (music, painting, photography, conferences, cinema, etc.). From October to April IFB organize every first friday of the month the French (Love) Friday a night live performances with the best live Myanmar bands and French Dj set.

Every monday at 7:30pm join the Cine Club a screening for all french cinema lovers with film in french langages with english subtitles. Free entrance. 

More recently, IFB also has been hosting activities and sports classes open to all : yoga, capoeira, tango, boxing, meditation, drama…
