Get into the French rhythm in the Heart of Winter

From the 1st to the 19th of February 2016, the Cours de vacances offers intensive three-week courses allowing you to improve your French at the University of Lausanne. These courses are open to all non french-speakers over 17 years old who wish to improve their knowledge of the language.

IMPORTANT: We do not offer courses for complete beginners (no notion of French) during the winter.
If you are a complete beginner (you have NO elementary notion of French and you have NEVER taken lessons), we offer six-week courses during the summer.
