How to learn French in Paris (free or cheap)
Most universities organize intensive courses of French language and culture in September, before the start of classes. They are usually free, but reserved for students under an exchange program. Some universities also offer courses in French as a Foreign Language (FLE) during the year. Register with the International Office of your home university (before June 30 for intensive courses and in September for the semester courses).

Hi community, I am new here and would like to ask how I could renew my visa with learning french. As I know that I need to enroll in universities or private schools of french language courses. However, I would like to find other lower price or free courses and I consider if any of them could provide me the ”attestation de scolaire” to renew my student visa. Hope you guys could give me some advice. Thanks
