Learn French in Aix-en-Provence

Aix-en-Provence is a vibrant and lively university town with approximately 30,000 students and has a truly cultured feel, home to a dynamic opera festival each July. Everyone loves to see and be seen drinking coffee with the local Aixois, in the outdoor terrace cafes on the Cours Mirabeau.

With over 40 years of teaching experience the college offers a great study location to suit ALL linguistic needs (across 6 language levels). The language school in Aix, appeals to CESA students on a year round basis, and is ideal for short courses, year round.

CESA Plus Points:

  • Suits adults (all ages, but especially older students)
  • Ideal for students year round, but most popular in the May/September period
  • Good course options and great location
  • Great supplementary courses offered; riding, painting, golf, walking, wine tasting and cookery
  • A sociable adult orientated school that gets really busy, so book early!


I believe that the key to the whole experience was the way all the elements worked so smoothly as a whole; the French school, the teachers, the city, the hostess. All of it working together so that I had to speak French all the time. In the school it is not possible to do otherwise, but frankly in Aix-en-Provence you still have to use your French!
