Created in 2007, the French as a Foreign Language (FLE) Quality label makes it possible to identify, recognize and promote French Language schools whose linguistic offering and services present quality guarantees. This label is the result of a quality assurance process initiated by three French ministries – the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs –, members of the interministerial labeling commission which issues the label.

The label is awarded on the basis of a benchmark which concerns the following five areas:

At the end of their course, students receive a certificate attesting to their level in relation to the CECR scale.
