French Intensive Language Course in Nice

Location 

Learn French at our language school in Nice in the beautiful French Riviera. Situated in the city while being just 10 minutes walk from the beach, in Nice you really do get the best of city sights and conveniences coupled with the beauty and relaxation of the beach. Surrounded by its own garden, where you will be able to relax at break times, the modern, well-equipped French language school is right next to local shops, the beaches and the old town. 

The language school building has its origins in the late 19th Century and has been beautifully renovated to provide light and airy classrooms, all with air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. The school also boasts a full computer suite, a library, private garden with patio area and a lounge area where students can relax in between lessons.

Course

The core course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using French. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are 4, 45 minute lessons per day and these take place during the morning. This course is designed for students who wish to learn or improve their French, meet new people and have some free time to participate in French culture and life in Nice. The core course of 20 lessons also combines very well with a work experience option in our Work & Study package.

For students who want a more intensive experience, it is possible to add 10 further group lessons (for an additional cost).

There is also the option of adding 5 or 10 individual classes throughout the week (for an additional cost), the content of which will be decided by you in advance. We will ask you before you travel what you would like to cover with your tutor during these individual sessions, for example grammar, a specific thematic topic, conversation or pronunciation. 

You will be given a written assessment before you travel and a speaking assessment on the first morning before lessons in order to place you in the group most suited to your ability level. Classes have an international flavour and a lively feel because they are grouped by ability not nationality or age.

Accommodation

For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the French language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of our carefully selected French host families. They will not only introduce you to the French way of life and help you practise the French language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability and at a small surcharge, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates. You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in the FAQ section of our website.

Students of 18 years or older also have the option of staying in a single room in one of the school residences with other international students. The residences offer shared kitchen and bathroom facilities and meals are on a self catering basis. Please enquire for availability and prices for a residence stay.

Transfers

If you select to stay with a host family, they offer a free pick up service on arrival at Nice Airport. For other transfers, the tram line 3 runs frequent services from Nice airport into the city centre. We are happy to offer details for travel on public transport on request.

Optional Activity Programme 

The school offers a range of social, sporting and cultural activities including: salsa evenings, tapas evenings, karaoke evenings, cheese tasting workshops, cooking workshops, beach volleyball, segway tours, boules, bowling, visits to other local towns like Antibes, Monaco and Cannes and trips to the Matisse, MAMAC and Chagall art galleries.
