Learn French in Paris (Louvre), France
The best way to learn French is on a French immersion course in France. On an Intensive French course at our Paris (Louvre) school, students learn the French language in classes with a maximum group size of just 6 students. This small group size is ideal if you want to learn French fast, learn as much French as you can as quickly as possible, or simply make rapid progress with the French you already know. A French immersion course at our school in Paris gives you the opportunity to explore Paris at the same time as you learn French. Our Paris (Louvre) school is in the best possible location, in the very centre of Paris, half way between the Opera and the Sacre Coeur, and just 15 minutes’ walk from the world-famous Louvre Museum. It is also possible to follow an Intensive French course at our school Paris (Arc de Triomphe) and Paris (Opera).

The Standard French course (20 lessons/week) and Intensive French course (40 lessons/week) both offer total immersion in the French language, with a maximum group size of just 6 students per class. Every lesson is taught entirely in French. You can also take a ‘Combined Course’, combining group lessons with 10 private lessons/week. The small group size ensures that students learn as much French as possible in each lesson. Our school Paris Option 3 also offers a ‘savoir-faire’ course on French etiquette – the best way to learn the ‘do’s and don’ts of French culture. The school also runs an intensive weekend French course, with lessons taking placing over Saturday and Sunday, including lunch with your French tutor and providing total immersion in French.
Our school in Paris recommends that you stay with a French host family where you can practice the French you learn at school.
Although our Paris Louvre school does not offer activities, our colleagues would certainly be pleased to offer advice to assist you with arranging some activities yourself!
Oh Paris how I love you!
I immediately fell in love with Paris and could imagine myself living there- I couldn’t ask to have studied French in a better city! All of the marvelous sites surrounding you - the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe so close to school, the world famous Louvre museum and Notre Dame nearby, and such an energetic and cosmopolitan atmosphere... who wouldn’t want to live in Paris?
Whether walking down the remarkable avenue Champs Elysses to window shop through all of the top fashion stores, or relaxing underneath the beautiful Paris night sky at the Palais de Chaillot, on the right bank of the Seine river, watching the Eiffel Tower and the glistening city landscape, I had an amazing time in Paris!
Absolutely excellent - the teachers were keen and dedicated, and the lessons well-planned and managed well between the different teachers.
Teachers were very good.
The course was very good, and the teacher had a lot of patience with me.
I was happy with the course and would recommend it.
I loved the course, I'd never conversed fluently in French for that length of time before, and I was so surprised I could do this. The school itself was lovely, and the staff was great at sticking to a total immersion approach.
Teachers were first rate and I learned a lot. I would definitely do it again. Having been a languge tacher myself (Latin, English, Spanish) I really appreciated the preparation of the teachers, and the variety of the materials presented.
The teaching was excellent and the group size was never more than 5. Students were generally of a similar standard in the group and got on very well. The staff were very professional, motivated and friendly.
It really was quite intensive and therefore tiring, but that was exactly what I was looking for - a final boost to my French before my finals! The staff at the school were great.
The course was of a high quality, particularly in the afternoons. My accommodation was good and I shared the bathroom only with one other student, so that was excellent.
The school was very accommodating, clean, spacious and the equipment was very good. I liked the location. My accommodation was superb and. I would like to go back again next year!
