French Language Courses

As for the French language, it’s probably one of the most beautiful in the world. - Charlene Grimaldi, Princess of Monaco

Why French?

In addition to a birthright rich in history and culture, French is also the third most widely spoken language in Europe. It is the official language of 22 countries, and the co-official language of several more, including Canada, Switzerland and Belgium. It is also a language of diplomacy and, as such, is used by many international organizations, including the United Nations, World Trade Organization and the International Red Cross.
