Contacting your host family before your arrival will help you integrate quickly into your “second” family. When you have enrolled at ACCORD and selected a homestay, our staff will send you a Homestay Application Form for you to complete and return.

Bildungsurlaub accredited French language course

Bildungsurlaub accredited French language course

Select a Bildungsurlaub accredited French course in France and come to ACCORD Paris French language school to follow your French course. Bildungsurlaub is a subsidised educational leave for personal development and training purposes regulated by German Länder.
ACCORD Paris is one of the approved French language schools which German employees can choose for their French language training.

To be eligible to the Bildungsurlaub grant, most federal states ask the companies to employ a minimum number of staff and that the employee wishing to apply for the Bildungsurlaub grant has been employed for a minimum period of time by the company. In Baden-Württemberg employees must be working for the company for at least twelve months, while in Nordrhein-Westfalen it is only six months.

ACCORD French language school is recognised for Bildungsurlaub in the following German Länder:

Select a Bildungsurlaub accredited French course

The Bildungsurlaub must be submitted to the employer by the employee. The employer has the final decision whether the applicant is exempted from work to attend the training. The application must be handed in in a written form and all documents should be enclosed showing that the selected course is recognised as Bildungsurlaub in the Land (federal state). In most federal states, the application should be submitted twelve weeks before the course starts.

Bildungsurlaub allows employees to get five extra days of paid vacation per year. In many federal states it is possible to take ten days in Bildungsurlaub every two years. Saarland is an exceptional case where employees get six days per year.

The law lays down special requirements for language courses in order to be recognised as Bildungsurlaub. There are many criteria such as the number of lessons. Usually a total of 30 lessons of 45 minutes is required to be recognised.

At ACCORD the course recognised for Bildungsurlaub is the French course ‘D’ of 38 lessons/week

This Intensive French course ‘D’ includes the morning intensive French course ‘A’ (from 9:00 to 13:00) and three afternoon lessons of your choice (from 14h15 to 17h15) with one extra hour coaching during the week.

As the Intensive French Course ‘D’ includes 3 afternoon classes, students can easily enrol for the 3 ‘Writing and Grammar’ classes (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) or students can also mix and match these lessons with our two other afternoon classes: ‘Oral Communication’ and ‘French Culture and Civilisation’ (Monday and Friday).

During a Bildungsurlaub, the employer pays the employee’s salary as usual. The employee shall bear the costs of the course, expenditure on teaching materials, travel and accommodation costs.

ACCORD French language school: 3bis rue Jean-Pierre Bloch, 75015 Paris

After having been present for 10 years rue Montmartre then 20 years on the Grands Boulevards, the ACCORD school opened a new chapter in its history by leaving the boulevard Poissonnière and the 9th arrondissement for premises located in the 15th arrondissement, near the Champs of Mars and the Eiffel Tower.

Located near the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, the ACCORD school is also close to the Quai Branly museum and its famous “green facade” (a green wall), the Invalides museum and the Tomb of Napoleon 1st, but also the superb and unfortunately too little known Rodin Museum, UNESCO and many other famous places and sites.
