Student Testimonials for French Courses at Alpadia Lyon

✅ Why I choose Lyon!
Anna | Italy

‘I chose Lyon as a destination for its beauty! Also Lyon is a very interesting city from a cultural and entertainment point of view. The school was perfect and the classes were always interesting for me and my fellow students. Outside of class there was plenty to do: see the pretty city and participate in the activities organised by the school, which I found very entertaining. I would like to thank the Alpadia team for their availability and support as well as my host family for their kindness and generosity.’

✅ A great experience!
Batuhan | Turkey

‘Lyon was a natural choice as I wanted to discover this exceptional city. I stayed with a dynamic French lady who motivated me. At this host family there were three other students from all over the world. It was wonderfully entertaining to eat at the table and to share a meal together.
The Alpadia team were magnificent. It was important for me to learn French as I am studying Public Administration in French. There are so many things to do in Lyon: visit the Parc de la Tête d’Or, go shopping and eat delicious eclairs and cakes!’
