CCFS - Cours de Civilisation
de La Sorbonne
French Language School in Paris, France
The creation of the Société des Amis des
Universités de Paris (SAUP) dates back to 1899. This association, intended to
develop French culture, created the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne (CCFS)
in 1919. Initially, it was primarily attended by Americans but it has developed
considerably since then. The headquarters are situated in the Sorbonne university.
Nowadays, its students come from all over the world: almost 130 nationalities are
The CCFS offers French language and civilisation
courses throughout the year, in four sessions (spring, summer, fall and winter).
Language classes allow students to progress in learning French (grammar,
verb conjugation, spelling, vocabulary, approach to literary texts, etc.).
There are from Regular Language courses to Intensive courses, Language and civilisation,
Business French sessions, TCF and TCF-DAP preparation courses, Conversation classes,
Phonetics, Written expression, etc.
The student must be at least 18 years old. If
he/she wishes to stay longer than 3 months, must have a bachelor's degree too. The CCFS
are open to all levels (absolute beginners included). The level of French of the student
is determined by the CCFS as soon as his registration is complete. A compulsory written
and oral French test determines its level.
The CCFSs Welcome and Housing Service
proposes its students various types of accommodation (rooms in private homes, studio
flats, accommodation in hostels). Museum visits are a cultural complement to the courses.
Cultural lectures are organised by the Course Director. Excursions are also organised to
various sites and cultural institutions in Paris and the surrounding area.
