French courses for expats
Courses in 33 languages worldwide
When we arrive in a new country, we are filled with dreams, new projects, new impulses and curiosity. As we face a new reality, we are surprised, shocked, enchanted, disoriented and sometimes lost.
We would like some fairy to take us by the hand and lead us through the impassable administrative jungle, through store shelves, whispering to us what to choose among the many products with strange names, telling us how to find the best paediatrician and a good school where our child can easily integrate and develop, and helping us to deal with it all in a new language.
Our French courses for expats will allow you to learn the language of the host country in a very short time and get acquainted with the culture, practical aspects of everyday life, administrative rules and many other features of public life in the country you have recently come to.
Our French courses for expats will allow you to learn French in a few months thanks to our innovative, motivating and effective teaching method. We also offer courses for studying German, English, Italian, Russian and 29 other languages.
"Learn a foreign language in a few months" is an innovative personalised approach that will allow you to reach an advanced level in French. If you are a beginner with our 20-to-25-lesson programme you will reach a level of basic autonomy for communication in everyday life and 80-lesson programme will allow you to achieve an advanced level in French.
If you already have some knowledge of French, a programme of 20 to 60 lessons, depending on your starting level, will allow you to achieve the level of language you desire.
Your teacher will help you determine how many lessons you need to achieve your goal.
Integrate into social life by studying the language of the host country
According to the latest studies on the integration of expats, a foreigner begins to participate in the public life of the host country one year after his/her arrival. In addition to the language barrier, which represents the main obstacle to the integration of expats, ignorance of the traditions and the mentality of local residents, as well as administrative rules, also makes their socialisation more difficult.
In order for you and your family to better integrate into the social and daily life of your new host country, your teacher will provide you with useful and up-to-date information during your French classes: together with your teacher you will discover the most beautiful museums, exhibitions, cultural events as well as get information on medical insurance, housing rentals, school selection and all other services and aspects of daily life.
