Christmas with Eurocentres in Paris

Image representing bizarre Christmas traditions from around the world

“Paris is always a good idea“, Audrey Hepburn supposedly said once. We agree to this wholeheartedly because Paris is worth the trip not only in the warm sun of spring and summer. Delphine Crevelle, who works as a sales area manager and product manager at the Eurocentres language school in Paris, knows this, too: “Paris is a magical place during Christmas time. There are so many things to discover: the festive Christmas lighting on the Champs Elysée, colorful Christmas markets, open-air ice rinks …”. Indeed, the French capital stupefies with its very own winter charm in all its glory. When Christmas lights engulf the streets and monuments in a warm and festive light and the first snowflakes float down dancingly from the Parisian sky, no one can escape the wintery romance of the metropolis on the Seine. What makes the advent season in Paris so special and why is it the perfect moment for a language stay at one of our Eurocentres language schools?

The Eurocentres language school is located at the very heart of the popular Latin Quarter, a lively student district with many cafés, restaurants, bars, galleries, and small boutiques” Delphine reveals. What more is there to say for those who would like to learn French in the city of love, art, and fashion? Interested parties can choose between a variety of courses and will be accommodated in a host family or a student dormitory. During a Eurocentres French language course, participants learn French in small, international groups, while competent teaching staff imparts the necessary know-how with innovative and practical teaching methods, materials and an e-learning tool (my.Eurocentres).

The great advantage of our Eurocentres language school in Paris: You can apply the study matter right on-site. Because the best language school is Paris itself! You will not only get to know the manifold facets of Paris during organized tours, trips, and leisure activities, but its inhabitants as well. Delphine mentions another advantage: “Our Eurocentres language school is located but a stone’s throw away from grand sights like Notre-Dame and the Louvre and also invites you to spontaneous discovery tours. Stroll along the nearby Seine and visit the famous Musée d’Orsay, one of the innumerable great museums of the city. Or set out on a journey in search of the most delicious macarons of the city”.

Further, Delphine gushes about the unique atmosphere that wraps itself around the French capital in the time before Christmas: “Each year we decorate the language school during the advent season with a Christmas tree and we celebrate the festive occasion with a Christmas aperitif for all language students and the teaching personnel. The Christmas mood casts a spell over the entire city and makes a language stay in Paris a particularly special experience: Not only the Champs Elysée is illuminated in a Christmassy fashion, but also famous department stores like the Galerie Lafayette and Printemps. Shopping in Paris has never been as beautiful as this! Christmas markets on the Champs Elysée, at Montparnasse, and St Germain-des-Prés invite to mulled wine or a hot chocolate. And one is able go ice-skating on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower from mid-December until well into the new year! That is truly unique!”

Who is able to resist this much of excitement? After all, Christmas in Paris is always a good idea! Register now for a French language course in our Eurocentres language school in Paris.
