About Paris

Learn French in Paris - French courses - Summer Camp in Paris

Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and is widely known as the ‘City of Lights’. The magnificent city of Paris offers students experiences of a lifetime! For example, visiting the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, analyzing the glowering gargoyles of the Notre Dame or enjoying the glamorous can-can dancers at the Moulin Rouge.
Paris is the paramount French city in politics, art and intellectual life. Artists travel from all over to come to Paris for its paintings, sculptures, designs, decorations, music, theaters, fashion and literature. Paris is everything to France. The city is the center for government and business and is therefore considered the beating heart of France.

The ‘City of Lights’ has endless opportunities for tourists to explore monuments, landmarks, royal palaces, beautiful parks, as well as ancient fortresses.

Students living with a host family and students staying in the residence will attend two separate language schools.

It is located in the 9th arrondissement, on the first floor of a modern building in a small and quiet street, close to Boulevard Haussmann, where students can find lots of shops, restaurants, cafes and quaint boutiques. The nearest subway station is “Grands Boulevards”.

Our Residence is located in the district of Issy les Moulineaux in southern Paris.
