About The NRCSA Center

An island of calm in the heart of the city; a charming mansion-house situated within 10 minutes of the world-famous Opera de Paris and Boulevard Haussmann. It is the ideal place to learn the French language and to gain insight into the life, customs, institutions and the way of thinking of the French people.

The facilities include quiet, bright, attractive classrooms on three floors with an elevator, a common room opening onto a terrace, a room with television and video recorder, and a room where students can work between courses with books, cassettes, CD-ROM's.

The team of teachers have all received postgraduate qualifications in teaching French as a Foreign Language. Additionally, teachers are trained in various pedagogical theories, and have many years of experience teaching French. Teachers also specialize in particular subject areas, such as finance and insurance, law, business, tourism, and exam preparation for chambre de commerce, DELF and DALF.


About Paris

Students should allow plenty of time to see Paris. It is so much easier to take things at an easy pace and, if you stroll slowly through the little streets and along the broad avenues, you will be able to appreciate to the fullest, all the charms of the city and her many riches.

The Arc de Triomphe at the Etoile tops the Avenue des Champs-Elysees and is the burial place of the Unknown Soldier of the 1914-18 war. The Champs-Elysees runs down to the Place de la Concorde and then on to the Tuilerie Gardens and the Louvre. Nearby the Palais-Royal, with its splendid arcades and gardens, provides an oasis of peace in the city center.

The Grands Boulevards, laid out by Baron Haussmann, follow the rampart boundaries of medieval Paris. Les Halles, the former great market place that Balzac called the Belly of Old Paris is being completely renovated.
The Marais district, where the magnificent old buildings have recently been restored, extends around the Place des Vosges. The Basilica of Sacre-Coeur, dominating Montmartre, keeps watch over Paris unfolding magnificent views of the city, as well as the constant comings and going on the Place du Tertre.
