The French-owned Sofitel SO has brought a dash of Parisian chic to downtown Singapore with the opening of a new hotel in a landmark heritage building on Robinson Road near Raffles Place in the heart of the CBD. Developed by the Singapore-based MIAJA Design Group led by French interior designer Isabelle Miaja, with unmistakable floushes courtesy of Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, the 134-room Sofitel SO Singapore combines Gallic style with Singapore's modernity and features all sorts of OTT embellishments, including a gold-tiled rooftop pool, in-room iPad minis and couture-clad front of house 'ambassadors'. Sofitel SO Singapore is our choice to host L'heure du Thé Singapore fundraiser event for its signature of excellent service and food. It is also definitely one to look out for as a voted best new-hotel in the lion city.
In 1949, The Alliance Française de Singapour was founded by a group of French-speaking teachers headed by Paul Clerc. There were only 20 students and 50 members. Conversation classes were held twice a week in the evening and there was only one French language class and no teaching material. The Alliance was considered more of a social club than a language school.
Today it has since been very well established with its French language courses and have organised for the first-time ever an Open-House day for children and an International Women’s Day celebration in 2014. Executive Director of Alliance Francaise de Singapour, Ms Claire-Lise Dautry will be speaking about the French language at L'heure du Thé event.
