Estelle Gomard 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.
Camille Pelletier Teacher - DAEFLE, Teacher Training (IUFM)

Pauline Eysseric Teacher - DAEFLE
Master in Education and Health, Social Studies
Bonjour bonjour ! My name is Pauline and I am from Grenoble, a pleasant city in the French Alps. In 2019, I decided to come to New Zealand to teach French. Why New Zealand? Because this country is absolutely gorgeous and I can practice all the sports I like : running, surfing, climbing, slack-lining and so on! Why teach French ? Because I love it whether it is with children, teenagers or adults! It exposes me to a world of different nations, cultures and personalities. The learning takes place on both sides and that is something quite fascinating!

Sylvie Chappuis Teacher - DAEFLE

Bonjour tout le monde !
I’m Sylvie, I come from the Alps, the French ones! I’m very happy to join the dynamic team at AFC! I moved with my family to New Zealand after falling in love with the country 10 years ago when we were on working holiday. I love teaching, passing on the knowledge, to children and adults; and I love creating stuff with my fingers, be it with food, silver or wood. I look forward to see you at the AF soon!

Céline Mercier Teacher - Master FLE  (on parental leave)
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.
