Mr. Thierry Lasserre pointed out in his speech that in 1883, three founders together set three major goals of Alliance fran?aise. The first goal is to promote French, the second is to get more people to understand French culture and the third is to further dialogue between civilizations. It is through this idea that we can better know each other, just like the slogan goes, “Culture is the best weapon for mass education”.
