Our Team


Alongside her own teaching commitments, our Director is responsible for overseeing the Alliance Française de York and all of its staff and activities. She works closely with our Board of Trustees and with the other UK Alliances Françaises and the Institut Français.


Our courses (apart from one Beginners’ course) are all taught by native French Speakers. All our tutors are fully qualified and experienced. Our tutors include an AQA Examiner and former French teacher and Head of Modern Languages and one of our tutors is also qualified as an E-Learning tutor.


Our office, membership, social media, marketing and events are run by our administrator.


Most years, we are able to welcome native-speaker interns who support our administrator. They get to know our members and learners, taking part in events and carrying out specific projects.

Board of Trustees

AFDY’s aims, objectives, finances and activities are overseen by our team of eight Trustees.


Our volunteers help us at events and activities such as our Monthly talksFilm Club, Café Conversation and Café Débat. If you are interested in volunteering opportunities, please get in touch!
