Inter Cultures et Langues


About us

Since its foundation in 2010, A.I.C.ELL offers French classes for non-native French speakers in Caluire-et-Cuire, 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").

You can contact us at or at the numbers below.

Classes start in September (we follow the "Zone A" school calendar). We hope you will join us!
