Learn French in Lyon, France

A cosmopolitan and university city, a city of art and culture, a city of history and creativity,  capital of French gastronomy and contemporary dance, Lyon is a city on the move, a city that dares...

Since its foundation in 43BC, the former Gallic capital has benefitted from an exceptional location between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, where the Saône and Rhône Rivers merge, and bordering the French Alps. Today, Lyon is just two hours from Paris, Marseille and Geneva by TGV. France’s second largest city in terms of population, Lyon comes first in many respects and has everything on offer to seduce you. The city offers a cultural experience of the highest quality, dynamised by international events in art and dance such as the Biennales. You can taste the finest French cuisine, going from the smallest of restaurants to the more prestigious addresses of Paul Bocuse, and the presence of 100,000 students to add energy and vitality to Lyon’s inviting and unforgettable nights out. But this large European city also knows how to return to calm. From the Place Bellecour to the Place des Terreaux, from the Cathédrale St Jean to the Eglise St Paul, to the Parc de la Tête d’or, to the slopes of La Croix Rousse…its quays and its historic districts, like small villages, are inviting not only for shopping but also for wandering through and exploring. Stroll around the city of gold and silver silks,shimmering in the evening light. By night, Lyon is stunning. Discover its beauty for yourself, and let yourself be carried away by its energy and joie de vivre. Welcome to Lyon!
