Our Teachers


Teacher - 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

Hi everyone! My name is Luc, born in the North of France, in Arras, to a father from Martinique and a mother from Switzerland, the desire to travel and discover the world around me has always been present!
After studying French as a Foreign Language, obtaining a Master's degree at the University of Reunion, traveling and working in various destinations around the globe, I'm teaching at the Alliance Française in Christchurch now! I enjoy sport, culture and nature, but above all sharing my vision of the world, so I hope to see you soon to discuss all this during a French course!


Teacher - Educator diploma

Hello ;
My name is Arthur Espinosa. I'm French, I studied in Toulouse and grew up in the Gers. I've been a rugby fan since I was a kid, and New Zealand is my dream country, which is why I arrived here in March 2023. I joined the Alliance Française shortly afterwards at the end of May.


Teacher - Master FLE

Bonjour, je m'appelle Gabrielle !
I'm from the Champagne Region in the North-East of France, near Reims. I love travelling and have been able to discover Ireland, the United States, Ecuador and Hungary, before deciding on moving to New Zealand. Being a French teacher unables me to share my culture and language, but also learn from my students. I'm also an avid reader, I enjoy photography as well and New Zealand offers beautiful landscapes. I can not wait to see you in class, and hear about your own passions.
A bientôt !
