Our partner school in Lyon has been teaching French language courses to international students since 1999 and is located in the heart of the city center.

Our school offers a harmonious and convivial environment for French language courses, a stone’s throw from the historical center of Lyon on one side and the business district on the other, at the crossroads of numerous choices of public transport, in a stylish and lively neighborhood.

Features of our program in Lyon include:
1. A large variety of French language programs and courses

2. Active and modern teaching methods for French language with materials based on practice and communication

5. Modern pedagogical material to learn French supplied at no extra cost.

6. Small groups of 12 participants for faster progression in learning French

7. 6 levels in French language open all year round, A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, from complete beginner to advanced, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

– A French written test before coming to the school

There are more restaurants per square metre in this city than anywhere else on earth, so you know you're in for the best of French cuisine.

Lyon's Musée des Beaux-Arts has a great selection of works, including Rubens, El Greco and Tintoretto, and the Musée d'Art Contemporain offers more modern works for viewing.

Across the Saône is the old town on which the Romans built their capital of Gaul; to the north is the old silk weavers' district, and modern Lyon lies east of the Rhône.

Lyon has a very rich cultural heritage and is famous for its gastronomy and vineyards and more recently for its football team and art. At the crossroads of the main European cities, close to the Mediterranean sea and Alpine ski resorts, Lyon is perfectly located for people wanting to visit France and Europe. Lyon also offers a very dynamic cultural life and a variety of entertainment opportunities.
