France Langue offers General French programmes (20, 26 or 30 lessons per week) to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to communicate comfortably in French or to live in France.
The General French programmes are built around a basic course of 20 lessons to acquire the basics of French language and to focus on the 4 key skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). This programme is flexible so that everyone can adapt his/her curriculum by choosing additional modules (6 or 10 lessons).

Intensive programmes for rapid progress!

Our long-term courses are available for all levels and fit in with our methodical progress process over 1 to 4 terms periods. You will develop your language skills in both oral and written French via long-stay immersion in French language and culture.
You can also enhance your programme by adding linguistic reinforcement or cultural discovery modules in order to familiarize yourself with the workplace environment, prepare for exams or for French higher education.
