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.

By far the best language school I've ever attended. Top organized and great teachers. The school is centrally located in a lovely old building.
The perfect place to learn French and make new friends around the world.

ALPADIA Lyon is a great language school. The teachers are very good and friendly. The staff (receptionists, director, etc.) is very helpful, cordial and even have good humour. As this school is relatively small, the atmosphere in the school is particularly familial.
I can only strongly recommend this language school as I had such a wonderful time there.

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.

Alpadia is one of the best French schools in Lyon located centrally, facing Rhône. The course content is quite student-tailored and the staff is flexible and understanding. They help me manage my schedule while I was working part time during my French studies.

This was my fourth year to attend Alpadia Lyon and it won't be my last. I attend for only 1 week each year but choose Alpadia each time for the outstanding teachers, comfortable amenities and prime location. The school is quite environmentally friendly and all staff are so accommodating. I would definitely recommend!
