How to register for an English course with British Council France

English courses for adults, school year courses for children and teenagers and intensive bilingual courses

If you want to register - or register your child for our English courses (whether for holiday classes or during the year) - your first need to book an appointment for a free level test.

Intensive courses for children and teenagers

  • Early years and primary : please fill in the following form (in French).
  • Secondary :  please fill in the following form for the next holiday course session (in French).

What is free a placement test?

Within our premises, you meet our pedagogical team who will test your writing and oral skills. This will help you join a class matching your level and objectives.

Do I need a placement test?

You need a placement test in order to register you into the correct class for your level.

However you can directly register at your closest centre if:

  • you have done a placement test within the past six months
  • you have passed the FCE, CAE or CPE exam within the past six months
  • pre-school, primary and secondary kids can be registered for intensive holiday classes without taking a placement test.

What happens after the test?

Once you are given your level, all you need to do is register for our courses with our Customer Services team, according to availabilities. Parents will need to be present for young leaners.

You will be able to:


English courses for young learners :

  • 30 euros discount for each subsequent child of the same family 

English courses for adults (except for sponsored students) :

  • 50 euros discount for students under 26 and over 65, on presentation of identification
  • 50 euros discount from the second course followed in the same academic year (September to July)

Discounts cannot be combined

We look forward to welcoming you or your child at the British Council.
