Lyon Bleu was a perfect match for my demands. I started with A2 level. It is no problem to come here with zero French too. I like the service, quality and flexibility Lyon Bleu offers. The staff from administration has always been a great help. The location of school is in a nice area of Lyon. There are many nice bakeries and the famous park (le parc de tête d'or ) is just few minutes walk distance from school. I used to go walk there after french class. I totally recommend Lyon Bleu
