What to do in Paris?
The teaching method teaches French grammar through language games and exercises incorporated into the lessons. Oral communication is a priority: you will learn to listen, understand, and speak French. You’ll be able to express yourself naturally and appropriately, with fluency and the correct pronunciation and intonation. Most intensive group lessons take place from 9:00 to 13:00, and there is a 20-minute break for a short rest, a coffee while talking to your fellow students (in French!) or asking their teachers any questions.
The so-called "sorties pédagogiques" (walking lessons) are essential to the French lessons as they support what's taught in class. In addition, the students are encouraged to practice outside the classroom environment in a real-life context and direct contact with the social and cultural Parisian environment.

I was pleased with this lovely and friendly French school in Paris, near the Eiffel Tower. The staff is very and my teacher Valerie was fantastic. Learning French here was an absolute pleasure, and I hope to be back next year. The premises are spotless, and I wasn't in a class with too many people of the same nationality, so we all spoke French. I loved my host family and could easily walk to the school, which was great.
I spent three months here learning French, and I would do it again if I could. The teachers are competent, I learned so much, and the location is fantastic. The classes are not too big, and we made fabulous trips from Antibes to discover Cote d`Azur. The cafeteria was not open during my stay, but that was not a big deal; there were many alternatives in Antibes. I am delighted and recommend this French school to everyone. Jackie
I have just finished a 4-week intensive French course in Paris, and it was not only a great stay, but I made so much progress thanks to the teachers Laurent and Nicolas). On the first day, I was surprised by the school's teaching method because there were no traditional books or manuals. And this way of teaching French is so effective I made significant progress! I will be back next year for sure!
