Bienvenue à l’Alliance Française, the only place dedicated to the French culture and language in Christchurch.
Established in 1959, the Alliance Française de Christchurch is one of the nine AF in New Zealand. As a local not-for-profit organisation, it reflects the desire to share with others the love of the language, culture and other various aspects of the French way of life.
We offer courses for adults and children of all levels and all ages. All of our teachers are native French speakers and have a degree in French as a foreign language.
Teaching activities are complemented by a wide range of cultural and social events such as the Alliance Française French Film Festival, Pétanque Tournament, exhibitions etc. Our library also offers a wide selection of items in French (DVDs, books, magazines) and is open to all for a small annual fee.
