Are you planning a move to France in order to settle or work there? Have you been sent by your employer on a multi-month mission? Once there you will need to adapt to local culture, customs and politics. If you wish to fit in rapidly, having a good command of the local language is key.

Moving to a new country implies changes and it is quite normal to wonder whether you will be able to integrate successfully.

Even though many people in France speak English, most of them interact in French with one another. Speaking the language means you will be able to make yourself understood and have interesting conversations with your colleagues and acquaintances.

The best way to gain a solid command of a language is to immerse yourself in the country by taking classes at one of our partner schools.

Voted Europe’s best agency in 2010 and 2011, ESL – Language studies abroad specialises in arranging language study trips abroad. ESL provides courses in more than 20 languages in 200 destinations on all five continents.

Whatever the type of course you are looking for, we will find a solution to meet your objectives.

Finally, if you wish to perfect your children’s education, take advantage of our summer camps in Paris and Valbonne s/CannesCombining French classes with sports and cultural activities, they provide the ideal setting for learning a foreign language.
