A new formula!

Starting from January 2024, the Alliance Éthio-française in Addis Ababa has introduced interactive boards as a new addition to its classrooms for an enriched hybrid course formula. In addition to the benefits of our modern hybrid session, you will have access to a new and improved learning platform known as Apolearn, specially designed by AF’s pedagogical team for learning French, including self-correcting exercises that allow you to practice at your own pace from home.

All students will be given an introduction to the Apolearn platform at the beginning of the first class.
