French Courses in Paris

Enroll in EF’s French courses in Paris and soak up the very best of French art, fashion and culture in France’s fabled capital city.

Who hasn’t dreamed of taking French courses in Paris? There’s something magical about living in the French capital that no other city comes close to matching. Our language school is located in the Les Grands Boulevards area, just north of the trendy Marais district. From here, Paris is truly at your fingertips. Spend the day shopping at the iconic Galeries Lafayette. Walk from class to the Louvre’s Mona Lisa in a mere 15 minutes. Or simply grab a lunchtime crepe in the shadow of the Opera’s golden statues.

EF Paris goes beyond traditional language courses to offer special interest classes in French cooking and internships in fields such as tourism and marketing. Our French courses in Paris encourage immersion in local culture by focusing on improved conversational skills so students can confidently venture out into la capitale without their pocket dictionaries in tow.

The City of Light

There’s a reason Paris is the most visited city in the world. Art is everywhere, from masterpieces hanging in museums to jazz quartets serenading commuters in the Metro. The city’s architecture blends an elegant uniformity with splashes of spectacular monuments. Parisians are arguably the most fashionable residents on the planet and the pain au chocolat actually do melt in your mouth. Millions of yearly visitors can’t be wrong.

The romantic clichés about the City of Light are all true. But EF’s French courses in Paris offer students the opportunity to experience the city from a local’s point of view, where charming corners of Paris become just as recognizable as the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Spend hours chatting in a sidewalk café. Picnic with a bottle of wine on the docks of the River Seine. Browse for hidden gems in one of the city’s flea markets. Life moves at its own pace here, and you’ll quickly learn to keep time by turning your gaze towards the Eiffel tower, whose lights elegantly sparkle with the changing of the hour. Ooh la la, indeed.
