Our Recommendation

  • During your stay at ACCORD you can add one afternoon workshop or more, and you will just have to pay the difference between your course and the course including the requested workshops. Join the French Culture and Civilisation course which includes the Intensive French Course A + two fantastic afternoon workshops dedicated to French Culture and Civilisation.
  • Additional one to one lessons can also be booked for one week or more.
  • Enrol for 6 weeks or more in our Intensive French Course A and ACCORD pays for your exam fees so you can take the “Diplôme de langue et culture françaises”.
