The Alliance Française Auckland, part of a world-wide network of not for profit organisations, is the only French language and cultural centre supported by the Embassy of France in New Zealand.
We offer a wide range of courses to suit all levels and needs.
Our communication-oriented approach enables you to express yourself in French from your very first lesson. Our courses cover all four core areas of language development: speaking, reading comprehension, writing and listening.
All our teachers are qualified native French speakers. You will interact, communicate and work in small groups using the most advanced audiovisual methods and equipments.
The classes cover all levels of French, from complete beginner (level A1) to advanced (level C1), following the official curriculum of "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages". We can also prepare you to take official French governement language proficiency examinations should you like to gain international recognition.
