I have been at centre Zenith since March 2020 and within less than a year I can understand , read,write and speak french quite well (B1 level).

The staff are really patient with the students so you don't need to worry even if you're a slow learner .Adding cherry to the cake is that it's affordable compared to other classes in Paris and with an enhanced learning quality whether in class or in zoom as well.

Would definitely recommend anyone who's looking to learn french for working over here or any other purpose !!
