About AllianceFrancaise

The Alliance Française is a worldwide, non-profit network of associations dedicated to promote French language and culture abroad. The first Alliance was founded in Paris in 1883.


There are now 1081 Alliances Françaises in 135 countries including 11 in New Zealand, teaching 400,000 students of French at all levels.

What do we offer?

Family Time

French classes from toddlers to adults

French classes are offered for all levels and ages (from 1 y.o onward) all year round.

These classes usually take place in our premises but can be held as well outside the Alliance.
