You don’t always need a classroom to learn a language! Go full immersion through visiting the beautiful city of Lyon and its surroundings with our qualified teachers. We also prepare workshops on different topics to broaden your cultural knowledge as you perfect your French. 

For each excursion and city tour, we’ll put to your disposal pedagogic material that you can check before and after. The organization made by the French in Lyon team will allow you to enjoy fun tours, meet the locals, storekeepers and professionals. Finally, these activities are also proposed to school groups and families.

French in Lyon rhymes with immersion


We have a great variety of immersion activities to offer you, so you’ll be learning French through the means of culture too. These outside activities are suggested to you three times a week (for some of them some fees are charged, but remember that they’re optional). Our team will also organize excursions twice a month. These ones take place on Saturdays and allow you to discover the patrimony of the region: The Beaujolais region (Little Tuscany), Pérougues (medieval city), or even Côtes-du-Rhône to discover the culture of Romans and their wine. Other activities can be visiting the zoo, the different gardens of the city and the famous botanic garden, for example.

It is practiced by many fans but also by almost everyone occasionally and mostly during the holidays, summer being the preferred season for it.
