The Certificate in Irish Language and Contemporary Irish History and Culture is taught at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris. Exploring Irish culture through its native language and history, this popular course is particularly suitable for people who are interested in Ireland's social development, literature and language.

Irish language classes are available at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels and are based on the TEG (Teastas Eorpach na Gaeilge) syllabuses. Modules on aspects of modern Irish history and culture are taught through English over four weekend seminars through the year (see below).

Maynooth University Centre for Irish also provides Irish language tuition as part of the MA in Irish Studies at the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU).
