The Alliance Francaise 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 abroad. The first Alliance was founded in Paris in 1883 and nowadays there are nearly 1000 such associations throughout the world, including 10 centres in New Zealand.
The Alliance Francaise Auckland offers French language classes to both adults and children and organises social and cultural events (exhibitions, concerts, cinema…). Being a not for profit organisation supported by the French Embassy, fees charged are only intended to cover expenses.
The Alliance française promotes cultural diversity and an idea of globalisation respectful of differences. There is no need to be fluent in French to be a member of our Alliance and enjoy our activities as most of our events are bilingual.
