Other schools like ACCORD LANGUES, enable you to learn the French language in combination with the law, tourism, art and economics.

In a more conventional way, you can learn French while following courses to the university or while following other types of formations (art, kitchen, drawing etc).

You can also supplement your training of French while strolling in the bookshops or the libraries to document you.
