Why should we learn French? ou, in French, pourquoi apprendre le français ?
Learning French is not only beneficial for brain development and career advancement, but it is also an effective way to learn about the
French culture in a more accurate and non-prejudicial way. Alliance Française de Hong Kong has recently added several digital tools
to help you with your French learning journey. Let’s take a look!
As a part of improving your French-learning experience, your updated Student
allows you to manage your enrolment, check your homework, course progression and practice your writing / reading skills. You can view
your study schedule and download completion certificates, quickly and easily.
Recently, several updates are added to the Student Portal.
First, the layout has changed into a more dynamic and user friendly interface. You will be able to check your active courses (collective and
private courses), your library account, upcoming AFHK events at the front page.
Furthermore, new widgets are added to the Portal. You can now check out our social media pages at your Student Portal.
Also, you can choose the theme at “Settings” to make your Portal more dynamic!

2. New digital Boards "les tableaux numériques interactifs"
To facilitate your French learning process, Alliance Française de Hong Kong has installed SMART Board MX at all of the classrooms at Wan
Chai centre, Jordan centre and Sha Tin centre. The SMART Board brings numerous benefits for French learning and French teaching.
Multiple people can write, move objects, gesture, and erase on the SMART Board at the same time, without interrupting the flow of learning
to select tools or change modes. For example, multiple students can fill in the blanks, do listening exercises on the board at the same
Writing and drawing isn't limited to a whiteboard. SMART board lets teachers make notes anywhere: write into and over digital books
(Passe-passe, Edito), web browsers, applications, and documents such as PDFs and Microsoft Office.
It is an effective tool to engage online French learners. The SMART Board allows AFHK’s French teachers to connect with remote
learners using screen sharing, digital ink, whiteboards, and lesson-delivery tools (like Spotlight) to focus students' attention.
The SMART Board has a higher resolution than our previous digital tools.
If you have paused French learning for a long while, we also recommend that you take our French
