General Program Information

Palm-trees, orange-trees, mimosas ..... Blue sea, blue sky, sunshine ..... A dream-like setting to learn French in the best possible conditions.

In Hyeres, on the Mediterranean coast, the ELFCA institute welcomes foreign students of all nationalities, from college age to seniors, all year round.

The atmosphere at ELFCA is indeed a very special one: teaching is based on interactive and communicative methods, and includes humour and laughter as essential tools.

Dominated by its medieval castle, the old town consists of picturesque narrow streets infused with the colors and perfumes of lush flowers, and the enticing scents from Provencal boutiques and restaurants.

The residential section reveals a beautiful victorian architecture and the modern quarters offer all amenities, shopping centres, cafes, discos, cinemas, a casino etc ....

Hyeres possesses more than 20 klms of unspoilt beaches and a lively marina. It has also developed a complete network of cycling paths ideal for green tourism.

CՎtait mon deuxi�me fois � une �cole pour les �tranger qui apprennent le fran�ais. Cette �cole � Hy�res �tait plus petite, mais encore j�apprenais beaucoup. J�ai trouv� lՎcole un endroit tr�s amicable et serviable (les �tudients, les professeurs, et tous l�autre personnel). Les voyages par semaine (pendant mon stage, � St. Tropez, et � Cassis) �taient organis� tr�s bien. Merci pour tout.

This was my second time at a school for learning French. This school at Hy�res was smaller, but I still learnt a lot. I found the school a very friendly and helpful place (the students, the instructors, and all of the other staff). The weekly trips (during my stay, to St. Tropez, and to Cassis) were very well organised. Thanks for everything.

I was impressed by their staff, their professionalism and warmth. Every instructor was helpful and pedagogically engaging. I also had the priviledge of sharing out of class time with few of my langugage instructors. I am pleased I had the opportunity to spend the summer of 2007 at ELFCA. Merci.

I have attended ELFCA for the past seven years, beginning in 2001, sometimes going twice a year.  The experience has been rewarding and enjoyable.  I can't think of a better environment to learn and perfect one's French than20the friendly and beautiful town of Hyeres. The administration of the school is highly professional, warm, gracious and helpful.  The family stay is probably the best way to begin to understand the people and practice the lessons from the school.  The profs are as good as they come, each bringing a unique approach and story to the friendly and exciting atmosphere of the classroom.  The entire staff of the school goes out of its way to assure that each student feels welcome, comfortable and is of great assistance in giving information about nearby sights and excursions.  I have felt absolutely "at home." Je suis ravie de retourner la prochaine annee.

I found ELFCA to be the best combination of serious study and fun for learning French for all levels of students ; from beginnng to advanced.

Students are assigned to classes according to their level of competence, and the professors make certain that everyone participates and progresses, in an atmosphere that does not intimidate.

ELFCA�s administration makes certain that students� needs are met, and any crisis is surmounted, whatever the issue might be : housing, transportation, orientation, organised excursions, etc., all for a fair price.

Finally, Hyeres, and the surrounding area, including the seaside, afford many opportunities to enjoy southern France at its unspoiled best.
