Learn French from anywhere, at anytime!

Alliance Française de Bombay brings to you online classes to learn French. Batches are divided into three different modalities for the full duration of the course: on-site, online and co-modal/hybrid (at the Santacruz centre only).

Kindly send an email to [email protected] or [email protected] for any queries regarding the class modalities, or refer to our the kiosk to find out the class modalities.

Our Online French Classes are conducted using the following tools:

My Alliance is an online-learning platform. First time users are sent an email containing the link to the My Alliance website, their username, and password on the first day of their class. Please check the Inbox or Spam folder of the email address submitted by you at the time of registration for the same. These details remain the same as long as the student continues to learn French at Alliance Française de Bombay.

In case you cannot find the email notification or you wish to update the email address connected to My Alliance, please send an email with the following details to [email protected]:

  • Name
  • Contact Number
  • Class Details (Level, Centre, Time Slot, Teacher Name)
  • Type of class (Weekday/Weekend/Fast Track/Kids)

My Alliance works best on Chrome/Firefox/Safari on a Laptop/Desktop Computer. We recommend that you regularly clear your browsing history on these to ensure optimum utilisation of the platform.

Please follow the following steps for accessing AF classes via Zoom :

  1. Visit zoom.us
    In case you do not have a zoom account, you can create one by clicking on ‘Sign Up, It’s Free’ (top right corner). Please use the same email address which you used to register for the demo class / course.
  2. Check your inbox / spam folder for an email with the subject ‘Please activate your Zoom account’.
  3. Click on this email and then on ‘Activate Account’.
  4. You can now sign in and use your Zoom account.
  5. Each virtual class / demo class is conducted as a Zoom meeting – the link to these zoom meetings are updated on the website My Alliance (please refer to the My Alliance section) – the website automatically sends a copy of these to the inbox / spam folder of the email address submitted by you at the time of registration.
    When you click on this link (OR copy and paste link on a new window in Firefox/Chrome/Safari), the website might recommend that you download certain software missing from your device (including the Zoom software and flash player). Do download the same before the class starts to ensure a smooth session.

NOTE : We recommend that you use Zoom on a laptop/desktop computer with a camera, headphones, and reasonably fast internet connection. For slower connections, you might only be able to use the audio facility (and not video calling).

The website works best on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari – we recommend that you regularly clear your browsing history on these browsers to ensure that Zoom works properly. In case you have downloaded the Zoom software, we also recommend that you regularly delete the temporary files on your computer (these can be found by typing %Temp% on the search bar of your computer).

Alliance Française de Bombay is pleased to introduce Comodalité classes! Comodalité refers to a hybrid format, where online and onsite students learn together in the same class. Classrooms have been specially equipped with a professional video conference setup that has three HD cameras in the front and six microphones underneath for enhanced quality. The main computer screen is shared with all students, and online students are visible on a TV on the side. Both learning communities can also interact in breakout room activities thanks to a dedicated laptop.

Comodalité offers many advantages. First, it allows students to come back to the centres while ensuring Covid appropriate behaviours. Secondly, it gives students flexibility as they can chose whether they wish to attend the classes onsite or online. All that is needed to switch between both modalities is that the students inform their teachers in advance.
