Media Resources: A Valuable Tool

Alliances Françaises maintain a media library which provides all the documents necessary to master language and learn about a culture.

Our resource centers regularly receive new documentaries, subtitled movies, audio books, topical documents and informative online resources.

With assistance from the media library, teachers advise students on relevant extra-curricular activities including:

  • listening exercises with written support (audiobooks)
  • easy-reading books
  • films with English or French subtitles
  • oral comprehension CD; self-corrected exercises
  • online activities and self-taught training.

Students can also find preparation books for official exams (TEF, DELF, DALF, TCF) that can be taken at the Alliance Française.

Opening the Door to the Francophone World

All Alliance Française students are members and have access to the media libraries. They can borrow movies or documentaries (mostly unavailable in Canada), novels, comics, magazines and French-language newspapers.

In some provinces, Alliance Française media libraries provide French-speaking cultural resources, for fun, education and learning about creativity in the French language, and multimedia e-library of Francophone culture in Canada (culturethèque).

From any computer, tablet or Smartphone, access your favorite magazines as they hit the newsstands. View concerts and shows, listen to lectures, introduce children to French language, read eBooks and comics, and enhance your language skills with materials tailored to your needs.
