Learn French in France
This exhaustive guide is published by the French Department for International Co-operation and Development, and its Department for Cultural Co-operation and French. Its aim is to provide a selection of the training centres in France offering courses in French as a foreign language as well as continuing education for French language teachers.
Updated each year, this guide is mainly intended for our cultural network. It is also directly geared towards future students and anyone wishing to learn or perfect their French language skills.
You will find a list of long-term and summer courses in 117 centres throughout France, with one or two presentation pages for each establishment giving essential information (status, registration requirements, lodging, extracurricular learning activities and cultural activities) and a description of the different courses on offer. Other details concerning diplomas and certificates in French as a foreign language, professional networks and other practical information are also provided to help prospective students choose an establishment and prepare for their stay in France.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs shall not be held liable for the information transmitted by the training centres, especially concerning course descriptions, prices and teaching content. This document is in no way an accreditation of training centres by the Ministry - it simply aims to make a useful contribution to French language learning.
