Long French Course

We offer a wide range of French language courses, whether you need to learn French for private or for professional reasons.

There is a variety in intensity and length of the courses, and they all have in common the aim at autonomy and communication. Classes are in small groups (10 people maximum) during the whole year with a focus on oral communication.

For all our French courses in Aix-en-Provence the minimum age is 18 years, except for the closed groups where we can accept younger students.
