Welcome to our centre ESL Paris-Igny (13-17 years)

Our ESL "Saint Nicolas" course centre in Paris-Igny is surrounded by a magnificent 5-hectare park fitted with many sports facilities, which will allow you to recharge your batteries in complete serenity after the English classes or trips to Paris. Football, basketball, handball, athletics, high jump and long jump, javelin throwing...get some exercise by practising the sports you like!

Entirely renovated, the centre provides all facilities necessary for a holiday course for young students. The modern and pleasant classrooms are perfect for fun and motivating English lessons and the first-rate leisure equipment promises unforgettable moments of entertainment. The participants will have the use of computer and multimedia rooms, an auditorium with video projector and audio facilities for cinema and dance evenings, and relaxation areas with various games.

This exceptional course centre is ideally located right beside the RER station, allowing you to reach the heart of Paris in less than half an hour. This proximity means that our team can offer you extraordinary activities, including the discovery of all of the most beautiful attractions of Paris.

Effective supervision

Our experience of language study stays for juniors naturally leads us to pay very particular care to the supervision of the participants.

Present and available from the first to the last day, our team of specially trained ESL monitors gives the required assistance and watches over everything. Adapted to the age of the participants and to the type of accommodation booked, this attentive and effective supervision manages to remain discrete. It allows for everyone to enjoy their stay in complete freedom and security.

Pocket money service, the pluses of ESL

A “pocket money” service is provided in all of the residential course venues. Functioning on the principle of a bank, this service allows students to withdraw or deposit money every day if they so wish.
