ACCORD was founded in 1988 and since then the school has built a strong reputation for delivering quality French lessons in a friendly environment. The school has been awarded the Official French Quality Label and has links to various French universities.
ACCORD uses modern teaching methods that integrate discussions on contemporary culture and theatre workshops into its courses. The school also prides itself on its multicultural atmosphere, always ensuring that there is no more than 12% of one nationality in a class. All teachers have a University degree, experience teaching French as a foreign language and are actively involved in research projects.
The school is housed in a beautiful Parisian building in the heart of the city. ACCORD is only a few minutes' walk from the Louvre and the Georges Pompidou Centre, so from here you can easily explore the whole of Paris. There is also a separate site in the South of Paris for courses for under 18s, which is used during July and August.
ACCORD offers a wide range of courses to suit all your learning needs, from business and exam preparation courses to 50+ programs and special courses for under 18s and families. The school also organizes a range of cultural activities for its students, which may include boat trips on the Seine, walking tours, museum trips and excursions to Versailles, the Loire Valley and Disneyland-Paris. Some of these activities are offered free of charge and others have a fee.
