There is no doubt about it, Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and arouses strong emotions. When walking in the streets, you won’t stop being surprised at the beauty around you: grace and charm emanate here even from every nooks and crannies. Its bars, its splendid buildings, its luxury goods shops, its boulevards, its street corners and its monuments, the “quartier Latin” and “Montmartre”, its gardens where you can sit down in the sunny morning, the Louvre and its Orsay museum, the sunset on the Seine, the bridges... Paris is breathtaking! With an exceptional dynamism, it is very attached to its traditions and,at the same time, quite cosmopolitan. It contains a real range of cultures, languages and ethnic groups, which grants the city its own special charm. Studying French in Paris is a great pleasure for the senses. Few cities in the entire world offer the visitors as many possibilities as Paris; a whole life is not enough to know it and, on the other hand, you only need a few hours to fall under the spell.
