French Courses for Seniors in France

We offer French courses for seniors (over 50 years old) in the following cities in France: Antibes and Paris.

Please note that, as an alternative to a course in a language school, you could consider to Study and Live at the Teacher's Home, which is completely different from any other language experience. You live and study in your teacher’s house so there is no travelling to and from school every day. Your teacher is concerned only with your individual requirements and not those of other students because you will be the only student. And you can combine the French course with organised activities (e.g. sport, culture etc.).
