Join us in Paris for the festive period and experience the magic of The City of Light in a totally new way! From extravagant department store displays to twinkling chalets at one of the city’s three Christmas markets, you’ll not want for festivities during your stay. Swig some mulled wine, warm your cockles with some roasted chestnuts or cinnamon crepes, and browse the trinkets and wares offered by Parisian artisans. Take part in a Paris illuminations cruise to experience the full majesty of the city’s major monuments, or head to the Basilique Sacre-Coeur for a traditional nativity scene.
If you think Paris is impressive in the summer time, you should see it in the winter! Our school in Paris is situated right in the city-centre, just a short walk from the famous Notre Dame cathedral. The ideal location will ensure that you are right at the heart of the festivities, where you can truly experience the city’s sense of community over the Christmas period.
Courses in Paris
Our French Christmas course consists of 24 French lessons, which take place in the mornings over two weeks. Classes are held between Wednesday and Friday, giving you ample opportunity to enjoy the city’s festivities during your stay.
In addition to French tuition, our Christmas course in Paris also includes an extensive cultural activity programme. This consists of:
- Christmas-themed activities at the school
- A guided tour of the Fragonard perfume museum
- French film screenings
- A guided tour of the Saint Germain district
- Christmas and New Year’s aperitifs with your teachers
All activities are led in French, giving students the opportunity to practice their skills outside of the classroom and meet fellow language-enthusiasts. These activities are included in the cost of the programme, and provide insight into the city’s history, as well as French festive traditions.
Students can stay with carefully-selected host families in single rooms on a half-board or breakfast-included basis. Staying with a French family gives you a fantastic opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the French language and culture, as well as experiencing Christmas-time in a unique setting.
Alternatively, students can stay in the school’s student residence, with breakfast included, or in a studio apartment on self-catering basis. This type of accommodation is only available for students over the age of 18.
