Inter Cultures et Langues


About us

Since its foundation in 2010, A.I.C.ELL offers French classes for non-native French speakers at "Maison Ferber" community center in Caluire, just North of the beautiful Croix-Rousse neighborhood of Lyon. Adults from around the globe (28 nationalities – 4 continents) have joined us to practice and improve their French. Our classes also offer a wonderful opportunity to share and discover new cultures as well as the French culture and everything that our region, city, and neighborhood have to offer.

A.I.C.ELL is a non-profit organization ("Association Loi 1901").
