Our Administration

Karine H Director 


Hello, Kia ora, Bonjour. My name is Karin and I am originally from the North of France and lived in the beautiful region of Berry until 2018. That year, I moved to Australia where I was a teacher at the French-Australian School. Passionate about nature and gardening, you will find me outside whenever I have free time! But most of all I love to cook good food and share it around a big table with friends and family!

Our Teachers


Teacher & DELF Co-ordinator - Master FLE 

Bonjour ! I'm Céline. I come from the western part of France, right between Britanny and Bordeaux. I have taught in a few countries to all levels and all ages, before I decided it was time for me to travel. It was not planned but I fell in love with NZ ! And here I am, settled and enjoying working at  AFC, very happy to be part of this great team.


Teacher -Master FLE

Bonjour ! I’m Estelle and I come from the Champagne region, which you can guess is world famous for its beautiful sparkling wine called Champagne! I first came to NZ in 2017 to do an internship at AFC for my Master’s degree, and loved my experience in this beautiful country. After that I travelled and taught French in France and Australia, and I am excited to join  the AFC team again! I love languages and learning about kiwi culture, while sharing the French culture.


Teacher -Master LiDiFLES

I am originally from Tulle, in the center of France. I have a Master degree in French as Foreign Language teaching. Before coming to Christchurch, I taught French in France and in Ireland, and I have also lived in the UK. What made me want to become a teacher is my love for the French language and for cultural exchange : I love the fact that I learn a lot about other cultures while being able to share my own! Being a professor is not only about teaching but also sharing the culture and the language. I particularly enjoy teaching children.


Teacher - Master FLEer FLE

Bonjour ! My name is Laurène and I come from New Caledonia.
I have been working in education for over 10 years. I have a great capacity for adaptation because I had students from 6 to 66 years old coming from many different backgrounds. I taught French, English and French as a foreign language in college, high school and also for other organizations such as CREIPAC of New Caledonia. I have a great experience in teaching and events that I am ready to put at the service of the Alliance Française, especially since I would be honored to represent our small territory of New Caledonia there. Holder of a resident visa, I have been in New Zealand since December 2018, and in Christchurch since November 2021.
