Learn French in Brest, France
The best way to learn to speak French is to learn French in France. Our French language school in Brest offers the chance to learn French in Brittany, an exceptionally beautiful area of France. Brest lies on the banks of a large bay, perfectly located for watersports or for exploring the surrounding countryside. Learn to speak French at our school in Brest and you can also enjoy the cuisine and beautiful scenery for which Brittany is so famous. In Brest, students who learn French at our language school share premises with French students studying postgraduate courses. This provides students with an excellent opportunity to meet French speakers and speak French out of class.

Here you can learn just the French language, or can enrol on a DELF language exam preparation course. The school also runs a Business French course and a French for Teachers course.
Our school can arrange accommodation for you in a university residence, where language students mix with French students and so have ample opportunity to speak French with native speakers. You can also choose to stay in a nearby youth hostel, which offers reasonably priced accommodation and the chance to mix with young French speakers. To speak and learn as much French as possible during their course, we would advise you to stay with a French host family, where you will practise the French that you learn on your course as you speak with the family. Students who stay with host families receive free transfers from Brest Airport or Railway station. Private studio apartments are also available.
Like all our schools in France, our language school in Brest organises a cultural program to help students explore the area, learn more about Brittany and speak French outside the classroom. Activities include various visits, excursions to Mont St. Michel, St Malo, the Breton Islands, sailing, tennis, and other sports.
Things to do in Brest
Brest is the perfect location to have a short break in France. Come and have a complete change of scenery, fill your lungs with fresh, Atlantic Ocean air and enjoy amazing landscapes off the west coast of France.
If you like fish and seafood, Brest is a place for you! Thanks to its coastal location, there are a lot of seafood restaurants where you can savour a delicious seafood platter with crabs, langoustines, oysters and typical French steamed mussels! If you prefer to observe fish than eat them, you can go to the Océanopolis. A lot of tourists and marine-life lovers come from all over the world in order to visit it! It is not just an aquarium: there are three pavilions dedicated to the polar, tropical and temperate marine ecosystems, you will have a complete immersion in an underwater universe to discover the flora and fauna of oceans, and have the opportunity to see some really interesting exhibitions about marine biodiversity. You can even touch some species if you want to!
The teachers were very committed and worked energetically to provide an interesting and motivating course. The class sizes were small and there was a good mix of nationalities which aided language acquisition.
You really have the feeling you are learning a lot within a short period of time. My accommodation was great!
Excellent interactive teaching techniques with lots of bright ideas. I stayed with a family and it was extremely good value for money. They spoke French to me and provided good local food and a really comfortable room.
I thouroughly enjoyed my language course in Brest. The classes were small, well organised, varied and interesting. The school facilities were excellent and the staff were all very helpful.
The course follows your level, you will be helped if you want to know more by taking extra (private) lessons. The accommodation was in a beautiful waterfront location.
The course was good, the accommodation was of a simple standard but clean and okay.
