Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The evaluation process for language level was not very effective (especially for lower level students) and the first morning of classes wasted a significant amount of time (1.5 hours out of 3 in total) getting students placed.

The St. Nicholas campus is convenient for families who are in Paris and want to enroll children under age 16.

I love every aspect of Accord Langues! The experience I had was very positive. I chose the 1 week french course for 20 hours a week. The school was able to help me out when I made a mistake with my arrival time to Paris which coincided with the 1st day of school. They told me I could leave my luggage at the school. The teachers are excellent and they are so engaging. I have made so many new friends and I will definitely be back again in the future!

The acting classes are great, but not everyone is in favour of it. Therefore, the classes should have been offered as an option and not as a part of the regular syllabus.

The teaching was EXCELLENT...and I'm a teacher-trainer for second-language teachers. These teachers just did a really super job. The classes were smaller than advertised, which shows that the school is willing to run small classes if necessary rather than shoehorning students into wherever there's space. There was a good mix of nationalities in the classes, too.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
This school has NO registration fee, which will save you €50-€85, so that's important for short-term students to know. Important tip for the coffee machine in the cafeteria: first put in money, then choose how much sugar, and only then choose the type of drink you want. Otherwise you'll get "medium sugar" in everything! If you are in the market for souvenirs, there's an "overstock store" down the road that has a supply. Also, there's a theater next door that has a really funny show, all in English.
Other comments
I was only there for 1 week, and I'm very low level, but everyone was as kind and helpful as if I'd signed up for a year! All of these intensive courses are expensive, however...probably best for either tourists or prospective university students who need to learn French ASAP.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I didn't like the ateliers at all, something unuseful (no link with what you are doing in the morning). The morning is divided just with a break of 20 min at 11. You have the same professor all 4 hours. Then I didn't like that there are new students even during the week..

Make sure you are well informed about what will be taught in each class, especially if you are on limited time. Cafes are great although sometimes service is very slow. Cafe next door has better coffee than the school.
