Learn French in France
Founded in 1984, the Alliance Française of Lyon (AFLyon) is the 1st French school in Lyon. Each year, over 2,500 students from 130 countries come to the AFLyon to learn French in a friendly environment that promotes exchange, respect and intercultural dialogue..
The school is located in the 3rd district of Lyon, in the heart of the city, 300 meters away from the banks of the Rhone. It is very well served by public transport (bus, metro, tram) and it is a 15 minutes walk from Part-Dieu train station.
The AFLyon occupies a building of the early twentieth century, completely renovated, with air-conditioning and easily accessible to people with disabilities. It is a cozy space of 2,500m² including 17 spacious classrooms and various pleasant living spaces to encourage interaction between students:
-a large lobby,
-a beautiful terrace,
-a multicultural community
Studying French at the AFLyon is an unforgettable experience that you will share with people from all over the world! Hosting more than 70 different nationalities each month, the AFLyon offers true cultural mix and unique openness to the world.
We organize events and activities in our school throughout the year: cine-club, evening games, parties, shows, etc. Our cultural program is based on the exceptional cultural offer of Lyon (2nd artistic and cultural city in France) as well as on the activities offered by our associative partners (dinner with a local family, excursions in the region, wine tasting, language aperitifs etc.)
