Learn French in Bordeaux
The French language school in Bordeaux, offers students a fabulous central city location and a range of French courses to suit all needs, from long-term courses to one week private tuition and a range of short term general French group courses, to suit all levels of ability.
There is a lively student scene in Bordeaux throughout the academic year, though of course it is the wine industry and commerce generally, that brought great wealth to the region.
CESA Plus Points
- Good quality language course options for academic or general language improvement
- Ideal for adults & students
- Languages for Life courses are popular, so early bookings recommended
- Book Cookery or Wine Appreciation as an extra, on set dates each year
- Very popular school with past CESA students
There was a good variety of approaches with plenty of opportunities to speak. The right balance between “closed” and more “open” exercises. Some interesting and relevant material was used for example films and newspapers.
CESA were extremely helpful and efficient. I would definitely go back to Bordeaux again. My language course was a very worthwhile experience in every way, it proved far easier to become a pupil again than I had anticipated.
