Where to learn French as a Foreign Language (FLE)?

Updated: Feb 27

There are many training centres for learning French as a foreign language in France (FLE). To be sure that the centre guarantees quality training, we recommend you to choose a centre with the "Qualité FLE" label.

You can then choose a university centre, an Alliance Française or a private school. Depending on the centre you choose, you can opt for intensive, semi-intensive, day or evening courses.
