Where You'll Study

The prestige of the Sorbonne is matched by few educational institutions. Dating back to 1919, the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne (CCFS) has the status of a private institution for the teaching of French as a foreign language. The CCFS offers classes in French to all levels, from beginners, to teachers of French as a foreign language, and everyone in between. There are also lecture courses and seminars on French Civilization offered to AIFS students in French and in English.
