Learn French in Le Gosier
Why wouldn’t you want to learn French in the Caribbean? The seas are warm, the sun shines practically every day and the life style is laid back and relaxed. If you need to improve your French, why not combine your studies with some Creole culture and like-minded students from around the world?
The school is at it’s busiest during the northern hemisphere’s Autumn, Winter and early Spring, but has plenty to attract students, year round. So if you like the idea of adding a little Creole and a lot of sunshine to the mix – French classes in Le Gosier, Guadeloupe could be just the thing for you!
CESA Plus Points:
- Good quality French courses, ideal for adults language learners year round
- French conversation classes can be combined with surfing or kite surfing for anyone looking for a language course with added fun
- Great location, just a couple of minute’s walk from the beach and amazing sea views from the school windows!
After just three weeks of classes at the French school in Guadeloupe, I had advanced significantly (testing at B2, leaving with a level of “utilisateur independant avance”). During that time, we also took a trip with all students at the institute, visiting … a slave cemetery … an anthropological museum and a rum distillery.

About the School
Established in 1994, the French language school is located in a colonial style building, literally two minutes walk from the beach, and with banks, post office, restaurants and shops all around it. The language college has 5 classrooms, a lounge area, 4 computers for student use, a library and a kitchen area. It provides a welcoming, intimate and relaxed study environment.
The school was based in Sainte Anne until moving to Le Gosier in August 2015.
The majority of students follow a programme of 2 to 8 weeks duration, some stay for up to 12 weeks. Others can only spare one week – but we recommend a 2 week stay or longer if your schedule allows, in order to get the most linguistically and culturally from your programme. At its busiest during the warmer months of the year (European winter time), students are advised to book early for the period, November to late February as the school is always at its busiest when Europe is cold and grey!
The staff are always on hand should you have any questions once on your language course. The school requires all their teachers to have university degrees and extensive experience teaching French as a Foreign Language.
