Bei der Infrastruktur hat mich gestört, dass es keine Klimaanlage gab. Mitten im Sommer war es in den Klassenräumen zwischen 35°C und 40°C warm, was eindeutig zu heiss ist, um sich konzentrieren und arbeiten zu können. Grössere Ausflüge wurden nicht angeboten; nur kleinere Aktivitäten in der Stadt. Das Angebot war aber vielfältig und relativ gut besucht.

Lyon es una ciudad universitaria con mucho ambiente durante todo el año y además hay un montón de cosas que hacer en ella. La metodología de la clases funciona de forma muy dinámica y los cursos están muy bien organizados. El ambiente de las clases es muy fluido y te lo pasas muy bien. Estar con una familia es una buena opción si quieres entrar en contacto con el modo de vida francés y ver sus costumbres. Mi familia de acogida fue estupenda, cocinaba genial y manteníamos conversaciones de todo tipo e incluso nos corregía y nos enseñaba frases típicas en francés.

« Ja ganz klar. Mein Französisch ist viel flüssiger geworden. Das nöchste mal werde ich noch länger bleiben. »
School highlights
« Die Atmosphäre unter den Schülern war sehr gut. Wenn man als neuer Schüler angekommen ist und die Sprache nich herade perfekt spricht, haben einem die anderen Mitschüler angesprochen und versucht so gut wie möglich auf Französisch mit einem zu sprechen. Ich habe in der verbrachten Zeit viele neue Freunde gemacht, welche ich wahtscheinlich auch noch lange behalten werde. »

Alpadia, Lyon
Duration: 5 weeks

Studying at Alpadia this summer was an amazing experience. The atmosphere is great and the groups are the perfect size (around 8 people). The programme is well structured and allows you to improve at your own pace. Furthermore, the school is placed in the centre of Lyon. It’s a really pleasant city: fun and with lots of things to do!

In short, you learn and you have fun. Getting to know the country that borders with mine but that can seem so different at times is a great experience. I also recommend staying with a host family, as it is the perfect complement to a language course and it offers the complete picture of French culture.

Alpadia, Lyon
Duration: 3 weeks

My stay in the French city of Lyon was a memorable experience. It was the first time I travelled alone but I felt comfortable straight away because people on site helped me a lot and I rapidly got used to my new environment. The school is small but has everything you need. The teachers were like friends, friendly and funny and always available if we needed help or advice. The school is located in the heart of the city and well-served by public transport. Lyon is a beautiful town. It is crossed by two rivers, which creates an amazing atmosphere. At night, the city is even more attractive as the two rivers are illuminated. It is a young city and it is not too big so you can get around it quite easily with public transport. You can enjoy every area of the city, especially the historical part, the “Vieux Lyon”. I can only recommend this destination to everyone! I really had a great time there and in the end, I didn’t want to go back home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Duration: 1 week

I am a wine lover and Lyon is the perfect city if you love wine and also cheese. It is easy to walk around the city and I only had to take public transport a couple of times. All in all time went by really quickly and I managed to be speaking French by the end of the week! It was a great experience that I hope to repeat again soon.

Host family
Being immersed in a country’s culture is without doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family means getting to know the way of life of Lyon locals from the inside – their food and customs – while having an enriching experience. It's also your chance to practise French daily in an authentic context. Your host will be carefully selected by our partner school. Living around 10-40 minutes from the school, you will stay in a single or double room with breakfast only or half-board provided.

Le Loft shared apartment (from 18 years)
Stay in a loft-style apartment, just 5-10 minutes from the main train station Part-Dieu. This large and spacious loft is on the top floor of a small apartment block. It has 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen opening out onto a large living room. In addition, the loft is equipped with Wi-Fi and a washing machine. It will take you around 20 minutes by foot or 10 minutes by public transport to reach the school and the centre of Old Lyon.

Residence (minimum 4 weeks)
In a quiet neighbourhood in the centre of Lyon, close to a tram stop and a supermarket and not far from Perrache station, this residence offers single bedrooms with private bathrooms. You will have access to the kitchen if you want to cook, but you can also try all kinds of French specialties in the restaurants around the corner. Common areas are cleaned twice a month, Wi-Fi is free and bed linen is provided (but not towels). You will be able to reach the language school within 25 minutes by public transport. Price on request.

Hotel-Residences (2 and 3 stars)
The main advantage of staying in one of the hotel-residences offered by the course centre is that it is completely independent. A single bedroom with a private bathroom will be available for you, with a TV and free Wi-Fi. You will also have access to the paying laundry facilities. Bed linen and towels are provided. The language school is 10-25 minutes’ walk from the accommodation. Enjoy life “à la lyonnaise” in a city where you can find so many shops, restaurants and cultural attractions!

Host family
Being immersed in a country’s culture is without a doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family means getting to know the way of life of Lyon locals from the inside – their food and customs – while having an enriching experience. It's also your chance to practise French daily in an authentic context. Your host will be carefully selected by our partner school. Living around 10-40 minutes from the school, you will stay in a single or double room with breakfast only or half-board provided.

With shops, cinemas, exhibitions, concerts, sports centres, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and much more, you will find a wide range of attractions to enjoy in Lyon. In the 2,000 years since the Romans founded Lugdunum (their name for Lyon and one of the ancient world’s most important cities), it has turned into a top international destination, especially for foodies. Head a short distance outside the city and enjoy the beautiful countryside that provides the ingredients for the legendary local cuisine. Take a walk, go on a bike ride or taste the latest wines from the Beaujolais region. Its closeness to the Mediterranean, Paris and Geneva makes Lyon an ideal destination for studying French, and you will no doubt be seduced by its beauty, rich culture and festive atmosphere.
