Strong of an experience in teaching FLE abroad, Céline Guérois taught French at the AF of Malaga from January till July, 2012. Then she joined the teaching team of AF Lyon during the summer before occupying her new missions, within our administrative team.

We wish her full success in the development of this new pole.

Fouad Laulloo, director of the AF Lyon, has left his functions at the end of August to go and head the AF of Victoria, in Seychelles. Fouad Laulloo crossed more than 25 years beside theAF of Lyon. At first teaching, he then passed assistant director then director of the AF Lyon, a position he occupied for over 5 years. We wish good luck to him in the tropics and we thank him for having made of the Alliance Francaise of Lyon a dynamic and powerful school!

MERCI Fouad Laulloo, directeur de l'AF Lyon



the ALLIANCE FRANCAISE of LYON, a 3 star school !


The State committed an approach of quality assurance with the centers of French as a foreign language in France. Henceforth, all the centers of language in France which teach French to a public of foreigners and answer in a set of objective criteria can see freeing the label Quality French as a foreign language.

Further to the audit realized in the Alliance in May, 2012, our school of French wins again the Label Fle and show great results!


Here are some appreciations (in French) stemming from the audit report::


Concernant le critère "enseignement-formation", les auditeurs décrivent tout particulièrement la cohérence globale entre les contenus de formation proposés et le CERCL (Cadre européen commun de référence pour les langues)... Ils récompensent aussi le nombre adéquat d'étudiants par classe.

Parmi les orientations données, ils suggèrent de faire participer les étudiants à l'amélioration de la qualité des formations par le biais de réunions...


Concernant le volet "enseignants", les auditeurs saluent notamment la stabilité de l'équipe pédagogique, la variété et la mise à jour régulière des ressources pédagogiques ainsi que la performance et la modernité du matériel utilisé. 


Concernant la partie "accueil et accompagnement", les auditeurs complimentent l'AF Lyon sur ses outils d'information et de communication (le site Internet, l'affichage dynamique, la signalétique etc.) sur ses services/fonctionnement (les activités culturelles à l'intérieur du centre, la diversité des logements proposés etc...), son service inscription ( la variété des moyens de paiement et la facilité d'inscription et de paiement au même endroit...) et son personnel d'accueil ( orientation efficace, information et guidage, accueil personnalisé etc.)

Parmi leurs recommendations, ils préconisent d'organiser une visite du centre et présenter le personnel aux étudiants, dès leur arrivée à l'Alliance. Nous avons prévu de réaliser cela dès la session du mois d'octobre.


Concernant le critère "locaux, equipements", les auditeurs soulignent l'accessibilité du centre par les transports en commun, la praticabilité pour les personnes à mobilité réduite, la signalétique claire et visible à l'intérieur et à l'extérieur du centre, l'équipement multimédia et la propreté de l'établissement.

Ils recommandent néanmoins d'offrir un espace plus spacieux aux enseignants et d'augmenter le nombre d'ordinateurs pour communiquer à des fins personnelles.


The label FLE is acquired by AF Lyon for a duration of 4 years, crossed this deadline a new audit will take place.
