New Term September 2020 Important Information

Well these are difficult time for all of us. We are all trying to return to normality and/or find new ways of doing things. Here at the Alliance Française Kilkenny we want to continue our mission of bringing the French language and culture to you, but we are challenged by the physical restraints of running classes in the current COVID-19 situation. So for this term anyway we are taking our classes online and will be running them through the Zoom software.

So we will be offering all our usual classes from Beginners to Advanced linking from our teachers’ homes to yours via a video link. In some cases the classes have been allocated a different time slot to fit in with the teacher’s availability. It will mean that you will have to set aside a regular timeslot to join your class from your home via your computer, tablet or phone. You don’t need any hardware (unless your device does not have a camera) and you don’t need any software (you just join us and we send you the link) but it does work better if you have a good internet connection.
