the art of living

Learning French is above all an initiation into a rich, diverse and millennial cultural universe.

Art, literature, poetry, yes, but not only that... What would France be without its gastronomy, its wine or its good manners? French life, often portrayed romantically in the cinema, offers a French way of life that is sometimes difficult for foreigners to understand. Knowing how to cut a cheese in the right way, knowing how to adress a person ("tu" or "vous" in French), are important details that will serve to enrich your exchanges in French. Conferences give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in French culture!
