French Intensive Language Course in Paris

Location

Studying French amongst the history, culture and cosmopolitan life of Paris is truly an experience to remember! The language school in Paris is spread across two separate centres both right in the heart of the city. 

The first is situated in the midst of the Latin Quarter, opposite Notre Dame Cathedral, two minutes walking distance from the Sorbonne, the Pantheon and the Luxembourg garden in one of the liveliest and most culturally active neighbourhoods of the city. Balzac, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jacques Prévert, Serge Gainsbourg, are just some of the great artists and thinkers linked to this beautiful and unique area of Paris. The school's Notre-Dame neighbourhood offers extensive possibilities to discover Paris, learn its history, experience the French way of life and to become a true Parisian in this historical and fascinating district.

The second language school can be found in a beautiful town house in the Victor Hugo district. What better symbol for a great school than the author of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame? Within walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Élysées and the Trocadero Esplanade with its amazing view of the Eiffel Tower, our second school in Paris will welcome you in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in a historic building full of charms.

Both schools offer a vibrant, young and dynamic atmosphere, and have various onsite student facilities such as a student lounge with drinks, snacks and vending machines, free WiFi access, computer area and private gardens. Each school offers a variety of different levels of class, and students will be allocated to a centre depending on the results of their level test and the courses being offered at each school for that week.

Course 

The core course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using French. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are 4, 45 minute lessons per day and these will take place during the morning or afternoon. This course is designed for students who wish to learn or improve their French, meet new people and have some free time to participate in French culture and life in Paris. The core course of 20 lessons also combines very well with a work experience option in our Work & Study package. 
 
For students who want a more intensive experience, it is possible to add six or ten further lessons (for an additional cost).
 

Accommodation 

For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the French language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of our carefully selected French host families. They will not only introduce you to the French way of life and help you practise the French language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates. A surcharge is payable for any extra nights. You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in the FAQ section of our website.
 
Students of 18 years or older also have the option of staying in one of the school self catering residences with other international students; single rooms are available. Please enquire for availability and prices for residence stay.

Olivia Trenaman

I am more confident and better than I was at speaking french than when I came to France.

Anna Warren

This is by far the best way to improve your language while still knowing you are safe and that there is always someone who will help with any problems.

Roberta Anderson

I liked that the tutors taught me completely in French; new vocab was explained/ described in french, as was all the grammar.
