CAVILAM - Alliance Française

The CAVILAM (Centre of modern approaches to languages and media), a private higher education institution, is a not-for-profit association. It was set up in 1964 by the University of Clermont-Ferrand and town of Vichy.

The CAVILAM is open all year round and it offers a new session every week.

Located in the heart of France, at 2h30 from Paris, it welcomes some 4,000 trainees, including 3000 students and 800 French teachers, of more than 115 different nationalities. It contributes to the educational innovation of language teaching.

It offers a wide range of immersion courses in Vichy as online courses suitable for all levels and for different time zones.

International reference center for teaching languages, CAVILAM – Alliance française is also a meeting place for teachers of French as a foreign language who wish to improve their practices and their professional skills during summer.

Our general language courses range from complete beginner (A1) to advanced level (C1).

Located in the heart of Vichy, the school offers students a multimedia library with free WIFI access, language laboratories, a self-study center and exceptional technological resources (Smart boards, digital tablets, radio and video studios …).

Every afternoon, we organize cultural activities: visit of the town and surroundings, cinema, tastings of regional products etc. We also offer different types of accommodation: hotels, studios, and more than 500 host families!
