Whether you're here for a short or long stay; whether you're in Paris or one of France's regions; whether you're beginning your language study at square one or have very specific objectives—whatever your circumstances you're sure to find a language center that can meet your needs.

Several years ago the French government began a program to award a label of quality to qualifying centers for the teaching of French as a foreign language operating within France. The "FLE Qualité" program identifies, recognizes, and promotes centers in which the consumer can be assured of receiving excellent language training.
