Destination

Intensive French in Brussels

Brussels, capital of Belgium - and de facto capital of the EU - is the multicultural and multilingual heart of the Union. Home to countless multinationals and international institutions, trade is booming in the European Village.

But Brussels isn't all business and bureaucracy: it also boasts a vivid past firmly rooted in culture and the arts. Architect Victor Horta, painters René Magritte and Paul Delvaux, Tintin author Hergé and crooner Jacques Brel all cut their teeth here. The city remains a hotspot for creativity and the arts, with events to suit all tastes happening throughout the year.

If you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the working week, the many parks dotted around Brussels offer the perfect respite, be it on foot or by bicycle - conveniently available for rent throughout the city.

And no description of Brussels would be complete without a nod to its excellent cuisine, world-famous fries, chocolate, variety of beers and desserts. With a vast array of local, artisanal products on offer, there's something for everyone - whether you're watching your wallet or going all out.

Our school

Ideally located in the heart of the European district, the school can easily be reached by public transport. It's a short 3-minute walk from Arts-Loi, and a mere 10-minute walk from the Schuman roundabout where most of the largest European institutions are located, and a 20-minute walk from the Grand-Place.

The teachers have extensive experience in teaching French as a foreign language. They work with a student body consisting of over 40 different nationalities.

Accreditations: ISO 9001, and Q*For quality label.

School facilities include:

  • 9 bright classrooms with interactive screens
  • Multimedia suite and library
