At our school, you can learn French on an ‘Intensive’ French course of 26 lessons/week, or join a ‘Super-Intensive’ course of 18 group lessons, 6 private lessons/week, plus 8 language skills ‘workshops’/week. A Super intensive course naturally gives you lots more practise and helps you learn to speak French even more quickly.

Our school also runs a very popular ‘French and Sports’ course for Young Students (12-16 years) in the summer.


Students can stay in a university residence, located just 5 minutes’ walk from the school. All the rooms in the residence are studios with private toilet, shower and kitchenette. Students from our school share the residence with French university students, providing lots of opportunities to speak French. Reasonably priced shared student apartments are also available, as well as accommodation in carefully selected French host families. Staying with a French host family is the best way to learn to speak French as you will naturally speak French to the family, enabling you to practise each day what you learn on the course.


The school organises a cultural program for students throughout the year, consisting of French film evenings in the school, parties, cycling trips, boat trips, plus excursions to nearby cities, as well as to Paris and Lyon. This cultural program helps students to enjoy their stay in Vichy and also to speak French outside the classroom.
