NYU Paris prides itself on providing in-depth teaching of French language and culture as a means to help students foster new perspectives on the world. Students have the option to live with host families, take courses at the University of Paris or at Sciences Po, and to immerse in the life of this great city.
Extra-curricular cultural activities expose students to facets of France and French life that they may not encounter on their own. Activities include outings to museums, opera and theatre, as well as day trips to places such as Versailles, Chartres, and Giverny French-language walking tours take students "off the beaten track" in their explorations of Paris; film screenings, conferences by scholars, writers, and politicians on current affairs, encounters with French students, tastings of French culinary fare—all enhance students’ exposure to French language and open new vistas on this extraordinary city.
With Tandem, NYU Paris offers you the opportunity to improve your French through a linguistic exchange with a student from the University of Paris. After first getting in touch by email, you will meet to speak French with your new friend who will practice his or her English with you. This is a great opportunity to practice a foreign language and discover French life at your own pace.
