Survival French

An ESA faculty-led introductory French program designed for beginners to intermediates. Focus on using the language to explore the city, as well as to understand French culture. On some days there may be visits to other sites.

Institut Catholique

A complete university-level course (approximately 60 contact hours)


ESA works closely with the Institut Catholique de Paris, a private French university of international reputation, to provide you with the very best language instruction available in Paris. Small classes, excellent teachers, up-to-date materials, a pleasant 5-10 minute walk from our residences make learning French fun.
