Recommendations for French Language course

Hi expats

I'm new to Nantes.  I'm looking into picking up a French course as soon as possible.  The research is a little daunting.

I wondered if anyone has some recommendations for courses in Nantes or any other methods of learning for an expat new to France.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide


Hey, I'm also learning French for two months now. I go to the Francophonie, it's a language school and it's great. I am also learning from the YouTube channel French with Alexa, she's got good and interesting videos. If you need more details about the school like the address or number please feel free to contact me. :)

Hi, I also went to Francophonie for about 2 months, started in March, it was 2 hrs per week. I was in class for level B1 but i stopped.  I gained nothing per se because this level was way above what i had even though i had level A2 before coming here. I resulted to youtube first and a lot of reading.

All the same, it's a great place. I saw another one in Commerce but i've forgotten the name.

Good Luck

A French language course is a way more efficient in a supportive environment. Pay attention to language teaching methods offered by the school: personalized class materials make the difference to reach each student needs.
Adding to that, an immersion course is the best option.
Hoping having answered your question,
Best regards,

The best way to learn french is, to work in France and having a girl or boyfriend in France. This is how I have learnt it quickly.
But, for sure. Also having lessons can help. Particularly at the beginning to have a base. But practicing is by far the best method to become better and fluent.

Hey Nick,

I've just recently moved to Nantes and am currently looking for a French course.
