Programs

Learning a langnuage should not feel like a chore. Our mission is to make language learning fun and to give you all the support you need to finally learn French and put your new skills to good use. We believe that there simply is no better way of learning a language than by living where it is spoken and by immersing yourself in every aspect of a new culture, and this is why we give you the choice of studying French in various locations in France or Switzerland. Our French courses are offered in several cities and all schools are accredited and known for the quality of their teaching standards. As a bonus, learning French in a French-speaking country means that you will have countless opportunities to practice what you have learned.

We hire the best teachers making sure that their qualifications, personality, and teaching style match our students expectations.

We use innovative methodologies that include the use of new technologies to make learning more effective and stimulating. We can guarantee that you will look forward to every lesson!

Benefit from structured lessons that build on what you have previously learned and take advantage of our engaging course materials.

Last but not least, we make sure that your progress comes first. Our staff is always ready to help before and during your course abroad.

Orientation:
Orientation session is held locally on the first day of classes. The orientation is designed to provide students with important information about immigration, law of the countries, and the services offered by the school. The orientation program also introduces you to the educational and cultural atmosphere and provide an opportunity to meet other students.

First Day:
With regards to the program, all levels of the language are accepted, from complete beginner to advanced, and your exact level is determined by a placement test to make sure we put you in the right class. One of the unique things about the NRSCA program is the ability to combine the language classes with an extensive choice of culture classes. In addition to the language classes, we also include our culture and social events program in the afternoons for students to interact with other student and learn about the culture.
