Since 1985, the CIA has specialized in teaching the French language. The standard of our teaching earned us “Qualité FLE” certification by the French state and accreditation under the European “EAQUALS” scheme.
Our teachers are all university graduates specializing in teaching general or specialist French to adults. They use active teaching methods where students are put in dynamic situations to gain the essential spoken, written and grammatical competencies for their level of language proficiency.
