In 2007 the Azurlingua school was awarded the label "Qualité FLE" It is one of the first schools in France to have been awarded the label for the quality of its teaching, its premises and services (administration, registration, accommodation...) The quality label is a commitment from the French state, through the agency of the Ministries for Education, Research and Higher education, Foreign affairs (High office for international cooperation and development) and the general delegation for the French language to entrust the CIEP with the setting up of a regulating agency for the award of quality labels to centres for the teaching of French as a foreign language operating on French territory. Such a move will, from now on, make it possible to identify, recognise and promote those schools able to provide courses and services that are up to their students' expectations.
The school is spacious and bright and boasts 17 air-conditioned classrooms, a media centre with computers, a student breakout space and free WiFi access throughout. The school offers general French programmes as well as themed programmes (e.g. French & cooking, senior) and teacher refresher courses. There is also a wide range of accommodation options and social activities for students.
