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
Our school in Rouen offers a variety of different courses to choose from, suitable for students of all levels! No matter which course you choose, 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 with a maximum of 12 students per class. If you’d prefer fewer French lessons each week, our Semi-intensive course offers 15 hours of lessons a week. Both courses cover all main aspects of the French language, with a particular emphasis on communication.
Choose Semi Intensive + Private Lessons to combine 15 group lessons with 5 additional private lessons per week; or, for an entirely personal experience, opt for a course of Private Lessons only!
We also offer a Business Course in Rouen, which is an ideal option for anyone who needs to learn French for work purposes, or in a professional context. Improve your presentation skills, learn how to communicate by telephone or email using French, and sharpen up on your formal letter writing skills!
If you are preparing to sit a DELF or DALF examination, our Exam Preparation course in Lyon just might be the perfect option for you! It will help to familiarise you with the specific examination, and revise in the company of like-minded students.
On specific dates throughout the year (usually once a month) we offer an Intensive + Cookery course, allowing you to combine language learning with French gastronomy! On top of the 15 group French lessons, you will receive 3 cookery lessons, where you will learn to prepare a number of French delicacies, including macarons, eclairs and Normandy apple tart!
Immerse yourself fully in the French language and the French way of life, by staying with a host family! Practice your language skills in a warm and welcoming environment with a friendly local family, carefully selected by our colleagues at the school. Choose bed and breakfast for a more independent experience, or if you would like to enhance your language skills as much as possible, opt for half-board (two meals per day) or even full-board (three meals per day)! You can also choose an executive host family which includes a private bathroom.
If you’d prefer to live with your fellow students, we also offer student residence accommodation. The student residence is less that a 10-minute walk from the school and includes private bedrooms with shared living facilities. This type of accommodation includes breakfast each day, which is held in the residence breakfast lounge.
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!
