Beware of counterfeiters!

In 2009, the “Alliance Française de Colombo” (at Barnes Place) lost its label by the Foundation Alliance Française in Paris. It is not an Alliance française any more from this date!
They do not have any relation with the French Embassy and the French educational system: they do not have the right to deliver DELF or DALF - official international French diplomas. They do not have the right to use the logo and do not have any relation with the Foundation in Paris, nor with the Alliances network. They do not provide in-service training approved by the Foundation Alliance française to their teachers.
