This program is offered by "Terre des langues" under the responsibility of a very experienced team of French teachers. It is conceived for students between 15 and 17 with at least 2 years of French and having a very strong interest in arts and history. It is important to note that, even though students use public transportation, this program requires a lot of walking, which they should fully enjoy.


The program is prepared for groups of 6 to 8 students in one class.

The goal of the program is to allow foreign students to study the French language and discover Paris in details. The daily visits of Paris are used as a teaching support. Students will have to build up a diary and bring the necessary material to gather documents, pictures etc.

Most mornings are spent in class: 3 periods of 50mn 4 days a week - 1 full day visit per week

- 1st period : oral practice (accentuation, conversation with visual support)
