About CEI – Centre d’Echanges Internationaux

FranceCEI (Centre d’Echanges Internationaux) was founded in 1947 to develop youth understanding and peace by promoting exchanges between young Germans and French.

Since then CEI has continued organizing international exchanges for young people on an educational and linguistic level as the way to achieve its mission: youth understanding and peace.

CEI Paris offers a wide range of French courses combined with workshops and cultural activities. Courses are available on their own, or can be combined with homestays, high school classes, educational tours and more. Programmes are available for high school students as well as for gap year, university students and graduates. In addition to language courses, CEI Paris offers internships to those whose language skills qualify them.

CEI is a not-for-profit organisation, ruled by the French law, and a member of several French and international federations which guarantee quality and reliability.
