Learn French in France

Renowned for its gastronomy, history, culture and fashion, France is a fantastic destination for your French course. One of the most popular tourist destinations worldwide, there are many different types of scenery and activities on offer:  from iconic Parisian architecture and glamorous beaches in the French Riviera, to rolling green countryside and fairy tale castles and forests.

A country famed for its artists, writers and musicians, France has an overhwelming cultural offering for visitors. The French cuisine and café culture is also a popular draw, in particular, the famously good cheese, wine and of course, pâtisserie.

France's climate is as varied as its scenery, with fresher temperatures in the North, snow in the Alps and Mediterranean summers in the South. When choosing the destination for your French course, it is also worth bearing in mind that accents differ from North to South and there are some regional languages spoken, albeit by a small percentage of the population.
