LEARN­ING IN PARIS

Paris Langues of­fers you the op­por­tu­nity to learn French in the heart of the French cap­i­tal at their lan­guage school in the 14th ar­rondisse­ment. The classes are taught in small groups of be­tween eight and 10 peo­ple to en­sure good progress. The lan­guage classes are com­bined with cul­tural work­shops and lin­guis­tic tu­to­ri­als, and be­cause stu­dents live and study on-site, there is plenty of time for prac­tice. Cour­ses are avail­able for all lev­els, from begin­ner to ad­vanced, and there are also spe­cial­ist cour­ses aimed at spe­cific groups, such as au pairs and busi­ness peo­ple. www.paris­langues.com
