The Institut Français de Birmanie – French Institute (former Alliance Française) created in 1961, has been offering French classes to adults and children & teenagers 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 private ones.
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 activities with IFB students clubs (Improvisation theater, conversation club, trips, workshop and many more!) to practice French while having fun. The library proposes a wide range of over 7000 books, 1200 DVDs, 700 CDs and weekly magazines, 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 room, big gardens, a cafeteria space, a small stage and a big stage in dry season.
