Learning French in France means embracing the nuances of a new language, challenging your mind and being willing to make mistakes. And – most importantly – it's about sharing laughter, conversation and a glass of wine with other students and locals – without the stuffy classrooms or piles of homework.

Where to learn French in France

Go just to explore one of France's diverse regions, or combine your French language courses with a foodie experience.

Roam the stunning Cote d'Azur on a French language holiday in Nice or discover the serenity of Brittany's coastline instead. Wander the enticing cities of Lyon or Toulouse, or converse over wine and cheese as you learn French in Paris.

For a peaceful language holiday, spend a week in the sprawling and breathtaking French countryside of the Dordogne region or explore the vineyards and lavender fields of Provence.

French immersion courses

You'll see the results: a one-week French immersion course equips you with as much language learning as four weeks in a classroom at home.
