Choose your quality French language school in France
You are looking for a high quality French language course in France?
You are looking for an experienced and accredited French language school in France?
If you are considering taking a French language course abroad, here is what you need to think about before booking a French course.
The first question that you must ask yourself is “Where should I go to learn French, and which French language school is the best one for me?”
It means… “Which city in France do I want to go to? And how do I know the school you want to join is a quality French language school?”
Which city do I want to go to?
Having decided on France, you will need to think about whether you prefer a large city, a university town or somewhere in the countryside. Many parts of France are wonderful, with welcoming people and stunning sites, but we think that Paris is the best. With so many theatres, museums, restaurants, concert venues, historic buildings and wonderful places like the Champs Elysées and the Eiffel Tower, you will never be bored in Paris.
And if you want to explore other regions in France or even London, Brussels, Strasbourg and many other French and European cities, don’t forget that from Paris you will be just a train ride away. Taking the train is perfect to spend a weekend in a different place! Take for example the famous Eurostar and spend a weekend in London or Brussels!
If you are worried that Paris is too big or too crowded, remember that there are many different quiet and peaceful areas in Paris (the Tuileries garden, the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Buttes Chaumont, the Ile de la Cité or the Ile Saint-Louis, the Vert Galant, the now pedestrian banks on the Seine, etc.) where you can relax. From many of these areas, it takes less than 15 minutes by public transport to travel to the heart of Paris and ACCORD – so you’ll never miss out on the best that Paris has to offer.
How do I know this school is a quality French language school?
When you are considering a French language school, how do you know it is as good as its website says it is?
Our answer is just one word: ACCREDITATION
First of all, ACCORD Paris is registered as a Private Institute of Higher Education at the Academy of Paris – Ministry of Higher Education. Similar to French school accreditations, the registration of our French language school as a Private Institute of Higher Education is another guarantee of the quality of ACCORD Paris.
Also, the best French schools are regularly inspected by an accrediting organisation which checks the quality of their teaching, student welfare, premises, administration and management, to make sure that you will learn French in a very good environment, that your enrolment will be handled efficiently and that you will get the course you have been promised. The major and official French school accreditation is “Qualité FLE”.
In 2007, ACCORD Paris was one of the first French language schools in France to have been awarded “Qualité FLE”, and ACCORD was given the Best marks (3 stars) in all areas (teaching, premises, etc.) by the inspectors.
An accredited French school like ACCORD in Paris will advertise on its website the official logo of the French “Qualité FLE”:
Furthermore, ACCORD Paris is member of SOUFFLE, a professional association of quality language schools teaching French as a foreign language. The SOUFFLE French language schools are committed to maintaining the high quality of their courses and services. This is why all SOUFFLE schools located in France also have the “Qualité FLE” French school accreditation required.
ACCORD Paris is also member of CAMPUS FRANCE.
CAMPUS FRANCE is an official organisation (created by the French State – Law n°2010-873, July 27th 2010) which aims to inform, promote and put forward the French Higher Education system abroad. Like the French school accreditations, the CAMPUS FRANCE membership is another assurance of the quality of ACCORD language school Paris.
