Tanto el ambiente de la escuela como el personal fue genial.Lyon es una ciudad fantástica, no creo que hubiese mejor destino para mi estancia. Es un sitio genial donde vivir, lleno de vida y muy amplio. Vivir en el loft con otros estudiantes que están pasando por lo mismo que yo ha sido una experiencia genial que me ha permitido conocer gente de la escuela que no conocía, conocer nuevas culturas y mejorar mi francés, debido a que ha sido el idioma común de todos.

« Sí, muchos. Creo que, habiendo estado solamente un mes en mi destino, mi francés ha mejorado muchísimo, no sólo a nivel de vocabulario y fluidez, sino también a nivel gramatical y, sobretodo, en la pronunciación. Es debido a la profesora, a las horas de estudio y a hablar constantemente en esta lengua. »

Alpadia, Lyon
Duration: 5 weeks

Studying at Alpadia this summer was an amazing experience. The atmosphere is great and the groups are the perfect size (around 8 people). The programme is well structured and allows you to improve at your own pace. Furthermore, the school is placed in the centre of Lyon. It’s a really pleasant city: fun and with lots of things to do!

In short, you learn and you have fun. Getting to know the country that borders with mine but that can seem so different at times is a great experience. I also recommend staying with a host family, as it is the perfect complement to a language course and it offers the complete picture of French culture.

Alpadia, Lyon
Duration: 3 weeks

My stay in the French city of Lyon was a memorable experience. It was the first time I travelled alone but I felt comfortable straight away because people on site helped me a lot and I rapidly got used to my new environment. The school is small but has everything you need. The teachers were like friends, friendly and funny and always available if we needed help or advice. The school is located in the heart of the city and well-served by public transport. Lyon is a beautiful town. It is crossed by two rivers, which creates an amazing atmosphere. At night, the city is even more attractive as the two rivers are illuminated. It is a young city and it is not too big so you can get around it quite easily with public transport. You can enjoy every area of the city, especially the historical part, the “Vieux Lyon”. I can only recommend this destination to everyone! I really had a great time there and in the end, I didn’t want to go back home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Duration: 1 week

I am a wine lover and Lyon is the perfect city if you love wine and also cheese. It is easy to walk around the city and I only had to take public transport a couple of times. All in all time went by really quickly and I managed to be speaking French by the end of the week! It was a great experience that I hope to repeat again soon.

Host family
Being immersed in a country’s culture is without doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family means getting to know the way of life of Lyon locals from the inside – their food and customs – while having an enriching experience. It's also your chance to practise French daily in an authentic context. Your host will be carefully selected by our partner school. Living around 10-40 minutes from the school, you will stay in a single or double room with breakfast only or half-board provided.

With shops, cinemas, exhibitions, concerts, sports centres, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and much more, you will find a wide range of attractions to enjoy in Lyon. In the 2,000 years since the Romans founded Lugdunum (their name for Lyon and one of the ancient world’s most important cities), it has turned into a top international destination, especially for foodies. Head a short distance outside the city and enjoy the beautiful countryside that provides the ingredients for the legendary local cuisine. Take a walk, go on a bike ride or taste the latest wines from the Beaujolais region. Its closeness to the Mediterranean, Paris and Geneva makes Lyon an ideal destination for studying French, and you will no doubt be seduced by its beauty, rich culture and festive atmosphere.
