About Us

Alliance Française is a worldwide network of non-profit associations dedicated to the promotion of the French language and the cultures of France and of the many French-speaking countries around the world.

 Alliance Française Auckland was founded 120 years ago. We have strong ties with the city
and a tradition of excellence in our presentation of our language and cultural activities.

As a linguistic center

We offer a wide range of French language classes:

We teach group classes , from beginner to advanced level, in our main branch in Grey Lynn as well as in the Takapuna and Howick areas.

We tailor individual and group classes for professionals, specifically designed to suit our clients' field, goals, timeframe and learning style.

We offer private tuition for individuals, tailored to their particular learning goals.

We organise introductory French classes and activities for team building events. These classes can range from an introduction to French through games and various activities such as food and wine tasting.

As a cultural center

We organise events throughout the year to share and celebrate French culture with our Kiwi audience.

Our annual, national-wide Alliance Française French Film Festival is a “must go” rendezvous for thousands of Auckland movie buffs, while our Francophonie Week at the Auckland Art Gallery brings French language and culture to the very artistic heart of the city through various entertaining activities and shows.

Our presence in the cultural landscape of Auckland also includes weekly French breakfasts , monthly French Cine Clubs, quarterly French/NZ Quiz Nights, our Beaujolais Nouveau evening, French Music Day and so much more.
