Where to learn French? At l'Ecole des 3 Ponts

As a major part of the French language learning process, the daily use of new vocabulary or grammar is important.
Thus, we have implemented, as a part of our curriculum, a French cooking school inside our institution in the Villa Beaulieu.

In the heart of French cooking

As we are settled in one of the most iconic region of France for gastronomy, it was impossible not to include cooking lessons in French as a part of the French immersion experience. Riorges, near Roanne, where our school is based, is about an hour away from Lyon, considered by the French themselves as the heart of French culinary art.

Being able to follow French cooking lessons after French language lessons is probably one of the most exciting element in our program.

Following the footsteps of some of the greatest French chefs, this unique opportunity for our students turned out to be a central feature that is being much enjoyed.

Becoming a chef in France by learning French

The goal that we hope you will be able to achieve with those cooking lessons in French is not to turn anyone to a three star restaurant chef, but to learn some cooking techniques, and also have fun doing it while you learn how to speak French in a real situation. Those techniques are designed for people with any level of cooking skills. So don’t be afraid if you can’t even cook an egg, you will be surprised with what you can achieve during our French cooking courses.

Once you’ll be back home, not only you will impress your friends and your family with your improvements in French, but they will also be able to taste the food you are now able to prepare thanks to the cooking techniques you were taught in France.

Now get ready, put on your apron, sharpen your knives, as you will be now entering the French cooking lessons you’ve been waiting for.
