About the school

In the center of Lyon, where the cultural and festive life of the city takes place, lies language school Alpadia. In a beautiful and stately 19th-century building, located on Lyons 'peninsula' or 'Presqu'île' that lies between the rivers Rhône and Saône. The school, overlooking the Rhône, has spacious, light classrooms with high ceilings and a family kind of atmosphere. There are plants, beautiful parquet floors and many high windows and historic details such as ornate ceilings and a marble fireplace. In the study area there are public computers where students can study quietly after the lessons. Just a stone's throw away you will find the largest square in Lyon, where students from the city often meet in one of the many nearby cafés and restaurants. The most beautiful pedestrian zones in Lyon are 1 minute away from the school and there is a metro station and a bus stop within a five minute walk. Alpadia has several schools throughout France and offers high quality education, the lessons are accredited by Qualité FLE.

An excellent experience

I spent three weeks here trying to improve my French. Although I have already brought a lot of knowledge (C1), I wanted to use it actively in discussions. I was not disappointed by the Alpadia language school. Already on the first day I noticed that the staff is very friendly and helpful, which makes it possible to discuss without restrictions in class. In written and oral assignments, the strengths of the students are always emphasized. The lessons were also always very structured. I achieved my goals. Merci beaucoup pour cette merveilleuse expérience :).

A nice option to study French. The building is pretty clean and spacious. The administration and teachers are helpful and friendly. Also I liked the way they organise the learning process with feedback every week.
Also nice that they have a C1 group.
The only possible drawback are extracurricular activities that are pretty lacking and not inspiring. Still as the main aim is to study French I do not find it really distressing.

Overall, I would recommend Alpadia Lyon if you want to improve your French.

I attended Alpadia for 2 weeks so this review is for a relatively short stay. My teacher (Gosia) is great - highly recommended. She pushes you to learn but is also understanding and can work at the pace you're prepared to work at, especially for me a beginner in the French language! The students and staff are friendly and caring, and the staff (especially Juliette) is there whenever I needed support. I highly recommend the school based on my experience.

I've been attending Alpadia Lyon for 3 months from September to November 2021and I can definitely tell I had a wonderful time and an amazing experience!
I was immediately welcomed warmly and the teaching staff was always kind and ready to help in case of need, the lessons were never boring but always interesting and I found myself really well.
I'll probably never forget this experience and I'd wish it would have lasted longer, so I definitely recommend it!
Thank you to all the staff and teachers in Alpadia, in particular Alexandra, Juliette, Veronique, Justine and Anne Sophie who took care of my staying in the school, I'm looking forward to come back!
