For over 20 years, E.L.F.E (Ecole de Langue Français pour Etrangers) has gained a worldwide reputation in teaching French as a foreign language to adults in small groups of 6 people maximum.
The school occupies a charming 19th century mansion house in the centre of Paris (between the famous Moulin Rouge and Opéra Garnier) at the end of a cobbled courtyard with calm and leafy surroundings. We are a small school and our administrative and teaching staff know each of our students individually and can cater for their individual needs.
The school has 10 light, quiet and spacious classrooms. At the school, students have at their disposal: a communal area with vending machines selling sweets, snacks, and hot and cold drinks, a terrace used for relaxing and meeting other students, a video room used to watch DVDs after lessons, a study room with plenty of books and dictionaries, two computers with free Internet access and WIFI connection throughout the school.
In addition to your course, you can also participate in cultural options which can be booked on arrival: cookery lessons, wine tasting, excursions, lunch with a teacher or cross-cultural workshops.
We do not offer visa support.
How to get there
Most international flights arrive at Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport, which is located at approximately 30 to 45 minutes from the centre of Paris by taxi or metro. The nearest train station is Gare du Nord, which is located in central Paris and is 5 metro stations away from the school. The nearest metro station is Place de Clichy (Line 2 or 13).
For a small charge, E.L.F.E can organise a private taxi transfer from the airport or the train station to your place of stay.
