Learn French in France

EXIS has more than 30 years of experience in arranging French Courses in Rambouillet, France.

French Course in France

If you want to learn to speak French as the French, the best thing is to follow lessons in France. EXIS has been sending students to an international language school in Rambouillet, 40 km. west of Paris, for more than 30 years. This school offers professional language courses, various forms of accommodation, great surroundings and optional activities, all at a reasonable price.

The school

The international language school is located at only 3 minutes walk from the train station in the beautiful town of Rambouillet, 40 km. from Paris.

Since the founding of the school, more than 70.000 international students from 91 different countries have followed French lessons at this school, which previously was located in a castle. Unfortunately, the castle needed intensive renovation, so in 2017 the school moved into the centre of Rambouillet.


The teaching is done entirely in French, which is the perfect way to make quick progress. In the beginning it may seem overwhelming, if you are used to a different educational system, but results are compelling. No boring repetitions or learning by heart. You will learn to communicate in French, understand Frenchmen and get to know how to say things like the French do – and why. On the first day at school, all students are tested, as students follow lessons according to their level, not their age or nationality.

During summers, there are special summer courses for young people, between 13 and 17 years.

The Courses

Standard course
You can follow a standard course with 20 lessons per week.

Lessons are from 9.00 o’clock to 13.00. There are maximum 12 students in a group.

Combination course (20 + 4)
If you want to follow even more intensiv tuition, you can add 4 individual lessons per week. Teaching during these lessons will be exactly adapted to your needs.

Summer courses for 13 to 17 year olds
From beginning of July to the second week of August, the school organizes special course for teenagers, with 20 group lessons per week, combined with various activities, for example:

  • Full day excursion to Paris, with guide
  • Half-day excursion, for example to the castle of Versailles, Maintenon or the Cathedral of Chartres.
  • Walks or bike rides in the woods with the opportunity for tree climbing
  • Afternoon activities, such as fitness classes, badminton, swimming or cooking
  • Evening activities such as barbecues, disco, movies, sports and karaoke.

Participants will be picked up from the Rambouillet train station on Sunday and accommodated in a special campus.
All students will be tested upon arrival and follow French classes at the level they need. Full board, excursions, free WIFI connection and 24-hour help and guidance from staff are included. Departure is on Sundays.

You are supposed to arrive in Rambouillet on a Sunday between 10.00 and 20.00 o’clock. If you cannot find a flight with arrival on a Sunday, it is possible to be accommodated from Saturday afternoon instead. One extra night costs 70 Euros.

Accommodation in a residence
The school offers accommodation in a lovely residence, where you can choose between single and double rooms. If you choose this type of accommodation, you are close to shopping possibilities, social activities and close to other students.
All rooms have a small kitchen, shower/toilet and TV. You can use the washing machines and the fitness area downstairs. You can choose to go shopping just opposite the residence and cook your own meals, or you can eat at local restaurants. WIFI connection is free of charge.

Accommodation with a host family
The other accommodation option is to stay with a French family. Living with a French host family provides more intensive language learning and is a good way to get a really close look into French culture. If you choose this form of accommodation, you will get a single room. Most families are located at typically 10-20 minutes from school. Breakfast and dinner are included. Not all host families have free WIFI connection.

Nice to know

Town and leisure
Rambouillet is a small town with about 27,000 inhabitants, a 30 minutes train ride from Paris. In Rambouillet you will find typical French bars, restaurants, bistros and shops.

There are good opportunities for running, horseback riding, walking or even tree-climbing in the surrounding forests.

The school regularly arranges optional activities such as trips to Paris, Chartres, Versailles, Chambord, Giverny or walks in the forest, meetings with French locals who talk about their professions, such as wine farmers or painters. Most activities are for free, others are at net prices.

Upon receipt of your registration form EXIS sends a travel guide with tips on how to get from the airport to Rambouillet, or how to drive to Rambouillet by car. Should you prefer to be picked up from Charles de Gaulle or Orly airport, we can arrange a taxi to pick you for up. The fare is 160 Euros each way.
