Founded in 1943 by French exiles in New York, France-Amérique is the only bilingual French-English publication in the United States.
Every month, the France-Amérique print magazine offers a compilation of portraits, reports, essays, and interviews to inspire thought and debate, combined with an elegant design and high-quality images. The publication analyzes French life and art de vivre, and offers a unique connection to the French cultural scene in the United States. Thanks to its bilingual format, France-Amérique attracts students of French and English who use the magazine to improve their written comprehension in both languages.
