Group Study Tours in France – ACCORD Paris


For your Group Study Tours in France, there is no hesitation: ACCORD is the perfect choice! ACCORD has gained a reputation for providing quality group study tours for colleges, schools, universities, senior associations, teachers of French associations, journalists, business people, etc. Groups are welcome all year round at the ACCORD Tour Eiffel French language school and at the ACCORD campus in July and August.
Each study tour is different and ACCORD’s commitment is to provide a tailor-made program to each specific request which is challenging, creative and well-organized.

ACCORD provides successful programs for groups!

Group immersion stays offered by ACCORD combine all or part of these following components to provide the best experience for each group:

French classes are taught by experienced and enthusiastic teachers of French who create their own pedagogical material and design the material to meet each particular group’s request.

French language lessons are designed and focused on the group’s requirements and objectives. The content of the educational program is built up by our ACCORD Head of Studies and team of teachers together with the group’s accompanying teachers or group leaders. For high school students and university students, the content may focus on cultural comparisons or on a specific topic: French culture and civilisation, Napoleon 1st and the First Empire, the 1789 French revolution, Victor Hugo and his mythical Quasimodo, the impressionist painters (including visits of the Orsay museum and the Claude Monet house and garden in Giverny), etc.

The activity program proposed in addition to the French course can include educational and professional visits which help the students practice their French while developing skills in specific topics of the French language.

Cultural excursions also enable the group to explore the unique cultural and natural beauty of Paris, the famous ‘City of Lights’. During these visits and excursions, ACCORD staff provides an additional opportunity for the students to communicate in French outside the traditional classroom setting whilst discovering Paris and its secrets.

ACCORD provides successful programs for groups!

For these Group Study Tours in France, ACCORD also provides successful programs in environmental studies, teacher training, business in France, etc. Programs with a dedicated professional content can be developed by our teachers to suit professional groups and include visits, lectures and/or workshops from professionals in finance, law, start-ups, etc.

During their stay at ACCORD, students will enjoy meeting our international students from around the world enrolled in our intensive courses and workshops. It is an opportunity for them to speak French in a relaxed atmosphere whilst making new friends and benefiting from learning from others with different experiences and horizons.

Our accommodation recommendation for group study tours in France:

Homestay accommodation in our selected host families located inside Paris provides an additional learning environment as students can practise their French in a Parisian family and enjoy the Parisian lifestyle. This is also why we highly recommend the half board accommodation, with breakfast and dinner with the family.
Single rooms as well as twin rooms are available all year round.

French lessons at ACCORD

In our multinational classes at ACCORD, we focus on intensive study in small group ensuring high quality results. Our class sizes are limited to 14 students (average 10 per class) and we welcome closed groups of 4 to 25 students.

The price range depends on the group size, number of hours in class and outside the class, type and number of visits and excursions as well as lectures, specialists in the business field, etc.

If you need our help, we can also organise your group’s accommodation in Paris, transport passes, a cultural and activity programme. Whatever your group’s needs, our ACCORD staff will find the best options for your group’s study visit in Paris.

Why choose ACCORD Language School?

A few of all our key points:

Homestay accommodation with ACCORD Paris

Homestay accommodation with ACCORD Paris

Homestay has always been the most popular choice of accommodation for our students at ACCORD Paris. Our partners have more than 400 friendly and caring host families, who not only enjoy welcoming our students as if they were members of their own families but also love talking about the students’ countries and cultures and sharing experiences.

All our host families are located within Paris ‘intra muros’. No family is located in the suburbs, except if a student asks for a specific location, for example Boulogne, Neuilly, Montreuil, Vincennes, Colombes, etc.
Some families host just one student, others host two or more, but never from the same nationality or speaking language (for example no Australian student will be hosted with an American or English student in the same family at the same time).

Homestay accommodation in Paris

The host families are used to welcoming foreign students and, therefore, know how to help them familiarise themselves with the Parisian way of life and culture.

Some of our host families are from mixed backgrounds and may have had a similar experience, when they were younger, to that of our students arriving in Paris. Some have young children or teenagers living at home, some have pets, some are retired or live alone, some are vegetarian. This is why we always recommend our students to give us as much key information about themselves and what they are looking for in a host family so we can match their profile as closely as possible to the family they will be staying with whilst studying with us at ACCORD Paris.

Homestay accommodation

ACCORD and its partners offer a variety of accommodation options to suit every student’s budget: single rooms with bed & breakfast (B&B), room only (without breakfast), half-board (breakfast and evening meal every day), room with breakfast and access to the kitchen or with only 2 dinners per week. Twin rooms are available on request, and for two students/ friends coming to ACCORD for the same duration (arriving and leaving on the same day and at the same time).
Arrivals are on Sundays, departures on Saturdays, but additional nights are possible on request, at an additional fee.

The most popular option is the half-board one, with breakfast and dinner every day of the week and during the week-end. It allows you to go out sightseeing and come back to relax or do some homework, and to enjoy a home cooked meal shared with your host family, you will very quickly consider as your “second” family. Staying with a host family is one of the best way to continue practising your French outside the classroom and within a convivial home atmosphere!

Homestay accommodation with ACCORD Paris

You might like to stay with one of our host families but feel you would prefer your own bathroom facilities? This option is offered as “VIP host family” as it is quite rare to find apartments in Paris which have two bathrooms. You will pay a little extra for this but for some students who like their own private space, it is well worth it.

Whichever option you choose you have the full support of the ACCORD accommodation team who will always help you understand that perhaps things are a little different to what you are used to (French breakfast is for example very different from a German or English ones).
