We’re so pleased to hear some really exciting news from Paris! Alumna Nat, after having been such a brilliant A-Level French student last year, is now having the most prestigious and memory-making experience on her gap year before she follows her dreams of taking her French studies to university…

“I have recently started the Cours de la Civilisation Française at the Sorbonne in Paris for my gap year and it has been an amazing experience so far. From pronunciation labs to lectures on French culture, the course has a huge range of opportunities and I’m really looking forward to spending the next 8 months here gaining fluency. I’m also enjoying meeting people in my classes from every corner of the world. Not to mention, living in Paris itself is amazing, as is being able to soak in the culture and spoken language (museums are free for students!). I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wanted a little bit of a challenge, and even for beginners as they do courses for all levels!”
