With its celebrated cathedral, well-preserved medieval streets and long association with art, Rouen is a beautiful city, steeped in history. It is Rouen where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake and where Claude Monet took inspiration for numerous paintings.
When your French lessons at our Rouen school have finished for the day, discover one of the city’s many museums, see the ornate “Gros Horloge” (Great Clock), or simply wander along the banks of the River Seine, enjoying the charm of this fine city. Learn French in Rouen and you will also have a great base from which to explore other fantastic locations in France. The unforgettable Paris is just an hour away by train, and you could also visit the iconic abbey of Mont Saint-Michel while you stay with us in Rouen.

Courses in Rouen
You can take many of our French courses regardless of your level, although you do need a higher level for some courses. No matter which course you choose from our wide range, you will be taught by experienced, native French teachers.
Opt for our intensive French course, and you will have 25 hours of French lessons each week. If you’d prefer fewer French lessons and fewer students in your class, our semi-intensive course offers 15 hours of lessons a week, with a maximum of just 10 students per class.
Our holiday French course is one of our most popular options. The course combines French lessons in the morning with two afternoon trips, helping you get to know the local area, and a full day Saturday trip.
Another great way to familiarise yourself with the Normandy region, its people and its culture is to do some Work Experience as you learn French in Rouen. Or if you need to learn French even more quickly, one of our one-to-one courses might be just what you need!
Immerse yourself fully in the French language and the French way of life, by staying with a host family! Practice your language skills with a friendly local family, carefully selected by our school.
If you’d prefer to live with your fellow students, we have two students’ residences. One residence has recently been developed, and offers a superior standard of accommodation.
Our Rouen school also organises an extensive program of activities, allowing you to experience France and test your French with the locals! After French lessons in the morning, visit museums, sample local cuisine on restaurant evenings, enjoy theatre performances and experience much, much more! Saturday excursions include trips to Paris, Monet’s garden at Giverney and the D-Day landing beaches on the Normandy coast.
