University of Paris IV, Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne
The prestige of the Sorbonne is matched by few educational institutions. A centralized Institution from its foundation until 1968, the Sorbonne is now one of the dozen or so independent units of the University of Paris.
Dating back to 1919, the Cours de Civilisation Franšaise de la Sorbonne (CCFS) has the status of a private institution for the teaching of French as a foreign language.
The CCFS offers classes of French language to all levels from absolute beginners to teachers of French as a foreign language, as well as lecture courses and seminars on French Civilization offered to AIFS students in French and in English.
