« L’Initial »

Discover, refresh and perfect your French!

This course is aimed to those who wish to discover, refresh or improve their level of French for a short period of time, from 1 to 4 weeks. At the end of this course, the student has the possibility to take an official certification if he/she wishes. It is possible to start this programme every Monday except for the beginner levels which start on the dates indicated in the calendar.

« Le Certifiant »

Get an official certification!

This programme aims to accompany the student to the TCF (Test de connaissance du français). It is offered automatically to students who register for a period of more than 4 weeks. Whether for professional or academic reasons, the course is validated by an official certification recognised by French universities which accept students who have reached level B2.

« Le Diplômant »

Obtaining an official diploma!

This course prepares students for the DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) and the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi en Langue Française).

Obtaining a B2 level diploma or higher gives you the possibility of entering a university in France without an additional language test. It is also a real asset for a professional career in France or abroad.

« La Prépa »

Preparing to enter a top school!

This is THE safe way to succeed in higher education in France.

The student focuses on language, methodology and skills related to his or her field of specialisation in order to enter a “grande école”. At the end of the programme, the student is equipped to pursue his or her studies like other students and successfully graduate!

« Français + »

Introduction to photography!

French and Photography is a programme offered in partnership with Spéos, a private school of higher education which for 35 years has been the reference for the photography profession and the leader in higher education for professional photography in France. During the summer, this programme offers the opportunity to study French and to learn about photography.

In addition to these programmes, students can also take private lessons, combined courses or additional preparation for the DELF B2 & DALF C1 exams.

Take your course digitally!

Our courses are now available in digital version. This formula allows the student to attend and participate in the school’s courses from home! This option is ideal for students who wish to start their course before arriving in France or to continue for a few extra weeks after their departure.

Susan USA

I was so impressed with [my professor’s] teaching techniques and her presentation of lessons… She was dynamic, could convey the subject with clarity and had a great sense of humor. I learned a lot in this class, most of all I learned to relax while learning French because [she] never judged you on your mistakes but felt that we learned while making mistakes and she is absolutely right.

María Espagne

J’ai adoré mon séjour comme fille au pair à Paris grâce à mon choix d’école. [Ma professeur] est la meilleure prof que j’aurais pu imaginer pour mes cours de français. Avec elle, j’ai eu l’occasion de beaucoup apprendre et de m’amuser avec ses drôles histoires. L’Étoile, 100% recommandable.

De retour en Allemagne, je voulais encore vous remercier pour votre soutien et vos conseils pour la préparation du DFP.
