Hybrid and Online Classes

Hybrid classes available from 2021

Want to learn French but can't make it to class in person? All of our classes are now hybrid*!

Do you live too far, have no access to transport or just want to stay at home? Alliance Francaise Palmerston North has invested in Hybrid technology to bring French language classes to you!

No need to be tech-savvy, just log in to your Zoom account and join the class in progress: you will be able to follow the lesson and interact with the group in the classroom as if you were there.

*Hybrid classes are taught in person at the Alliance Française studio but can also be joined online. A camera and a microphone are installed in the classroom to allow remote students to follow the class and participate. All existing and new classes are available in hybrid format for students from 7 years and older.

If you are wanting to enrol in a class remotely using the hybrid technology, please call 06 560 0749 or email us at info@french.org.nz.

Your teacher will send you the link to Zoom via email before your first class and will be liaising with you and answering your questions.

Online classes

Private and semi-private classes can  be taught in person or fully digitally. If you would like to sign up for online private lessons, please call 06 560 0749 or email us at info@french.org.nz.

Our online classes use the same platform as our hybrid classes so please follow the instructions below on how to download Zoom.

Zoom - Tutorial for students

We want you to be able to enjoy your French classes just as you would if you were to come in person.

Before you start your first online class, your teacher will send you, via email, a tutorial on how to install Zoom on your laptop. You can also download this document here.

You can download the free Zoom software here.

If you experience any difficulties when installing the software, please do not hesitate to contact us and our teachers will do their absolute best to guide you through the process.
