eLycée is an online French school: the only program of fully interactive French education online.
Students aged 11 and up can register to practice and perfect their French language in a total immersion, bi-cultural environment. In the virtual classroom, students work together with native French teachers - all certified by the French Ministry of Education.
The participants in every class see each other, hear each other, and work together using a range of ’shared’ applications, many of which are unique to eLycée. Our courses are designed by educators, artists and prominent intellectuals, with the assistance of educational bodies such as The College Board.
Our curricula focus on the acquisition of a full range of language skills, with particular emphasis on writing and composition. Students applying to study at European universities can work towards the DELF or DALF (the French equivalent of TOEIC / TEFL) which is recognized worldwide. Our AP French courses are accredited by The College Board; we have courses for language and literature, and an excellent record of AP success. Our adult workshops and private lessons can be customized to suit the needs of any student or group of students.
