Ooh la la... France is just irresistible. But who would want to resist? Just let yourself fall in love with the French way of life, the people’s unique outlook and the glorious scenery. Its little wonder France is Europe’s number one tourist destination. And you will appreciate it on another level when you speak French.
But where to start? Well, Paris is one of the world’s great capitals. Away from the instantly-recognisable landmarks you can lose yourself in the huge variety of shops, cafes and theatres that cover the city. Enjoy great food or inspect artistic masterpieces at close quarters in the Louvre or Pompidou. Move to the beat of cutting edge techno in the city’s clubs or the edgy rap that blasts from the suburbs. But France is not defined by its gorgeous capital. From the natural elegance of Provence to the exquisite chateaux of Amboise, from the rugged beauty of the Atlantic coast to the glamorous Riviera playgrounds of the Côte d'Azur, from the green fields of Normandy to the gourmand’s paradise of Lyon, the country amazes at every turn.
And then there is the French language itself. At once artful and powerful, the language of Gainsbourg and Molière, Proust and Baudelaire rolls off the tongue, it floats through the air and it is a pleasure to learn… especially in its beautiful home.
