Learn the language and culture of your host country

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 pediatrician 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 innovative and effective French courses for expats enable you to quickly learn the language of your host country while also becoming familiar with its culture, practical aspects of daily life, administrative rules, and other public features. We offer courses for French, German, English, Italian, Russian, and 41 other languages, all designed to motivate and stimulate your learning. In just a few months, you can master the language and feel confident navigating your new surroundings.

“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 socialization 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.
