Flexible part-time language classes

Our part time courses are designed to fit around your schedule, you'll find a suitable language class for you whether you would like to attend in the evening, daytime, or on weekends. We also offer short, intensive and fast-track courses if you need to learn in a hurry, as well as one-day workshops and taster language lessons.

Beginner to advanced level courses

We teach most languages at seven different levels and you can start anywhere from beginner to advanced. Our approach to learning is to teach you how to communicate effectively in real-life situations. We select content that is relevant to your needs. If you are a beginner, you will learn how to use the language as opposed to just repeating words and sentences as you would do with an app. We teach you to communicate rather than repeat.

    Les Jeux Olympiques de Paris du 26 Juillet au 11 Aout seront l’événement sportif de l’année.



    Depuis 10 ans, Paris se prépare à accueillir ces vingt-troisièmes Olympiades. De grands chantiers ont été lancés, de nouvelles lignes de métro ont été ouvertes et la Seine sera transformée en une gigantesque piscine !



    Mais s’il n’y avait pas déjà des critiques, nous ne serions pas en France… Paris va-t-elle se transformer en un énorme Air B & B ? Les bouquinistes, chassés durant les jeux, reviendront-ils et Paris conservera-t-elle le caractère que nous lui connaissons ?



    Les Jeux Olympiques de 1900 avaient profondément changé la capitale. Certains disent que Paris 2024 sera l’équivalent d’un nouveau baron Haussmann. Nous verrons tout cela ensemble.
