Mostly ‘A’s

You like to use your time wisely and focus on the job at hand. In this case, the job at hand is honing your French skills. If you need to perfect your French for professional reasons, ACCORD has a range of Business French (Français des Affaires) and Legal French (Français & Droit) courses to suit you.
Options include a combination of General French language course in the morning with Business or Legal French in small groups in the afternoon or General French in the morning with One-to-One French lessons in the afternoon. If you would prefer to focus your attention entirely on your needs and have your own teacher to design a course to suit you, ACCORD’s One to One lessons are what you need.

Mostly ‘B’s

You are a free spirit who believes in seizing the day and squeezing every last drop out of whatever life throws your way. Yes, you want to learn French, but that doesn’t mean you want to miss out on exploring Paris and meeting new people. We recommend either of the semi-intensive courses (mornings or afternoons) or the intensive French course A. That way you spend either your morning or afternoon practising your French skills in class, leaving you the rest of the day to soak up Paris and spend time with the new friends you’ve made at ACCORD.

Most ‘C’s

You like to embrace culture and history when you go on holiday. Spending your day on a sun lounger by the pool isn’t for you. When you visit another country, you want to live like a local and enjoy a total change of scene. ACCORD language school has the courses for you: French oral Communication and French Culture and Civilisation. Spend your mornings learning General French then 2 afternoons a week diving into Oral Communication and France’s culture and history. We’re guessing you’ll spend the 3 afternoons you have free visiting heritage hotspots like Champ de Mars and Les Invalides near ACCORD Paris!
