One year into the launch of My Alliance, the network of Alliances Françaises in India and Nepal has not only embraced the online tool but also made it a crucial aspect of French language learning across the 15 Alliances and their respective annexes in the subcontinent. This distance-learning platform proposed by the Fondation Alliance Française enables a learner to benefit from specially curated content before, during, and after class.

Modeled on social networks, My Alliance allows learners to remain connected to their teachers and other learners online. It enables them to practice the skills acquired during class through interactive exercises, discussion boards, and forums. This extends the learning continuum beyond the classroom and brings it into the hands of the learner. Through the various functionalities available on the platform, My Alliance allows students to become active participants in the learning process like never before.

The global availability of My Alliance and its integration in the pedagogic practices of Alliances Françaises around the world is a key aspect of the ambitious Alliance 2020 plan proposed by the Fondation. In the India-Nepal network, this project took shape in two stages – both of which funded by the Fondation. This was done because My Alliance represents a real pedagogic asset in the field of Français Langue Étrangère (French as a Foreign Language). Furthermore, the availability of this platform under the Alliance Française brand makes a strong case for the homogeneity, dynamism, and modernity of the network

To kickoff the initiative, more than 300 teachers were introduced to the platform in November 2017. This was followed by a 3-day training session of 26 representatives from the 15 Alliances in the India-Nepal network on the marketing of the tool (more details here).

Fast forward to 2018 and the Alliances Françaises in India and Nepal have already enriched their previous offer of classroom courses by proposing mixed learning courses in conjunction with My Alliance. This offer has attracted many new learners who remain connected to the platform. Prospects for partnerships with universities, international schools and Indian and Nepali companies are also numerous.

Given these developments and the overall success of the tool, it comes as no surprise that the India-Nepal network is planning to upgrade by the end of the year to My Alliance 2.0 which will offer even more functionalities and open up new avenues for learning.
