The best way to learn French is to study in France. A course at our French language school in Nice, France, is a great way to learn French and to see France. Capital of the French Riviera, Nice is famous for its carnival, beaches and wonderful Mediterranean climate, offering students who learn French in Nice the chance to really ‘live’ the French language and experience the lifestyle of this beautiful part of France. The area around Nice also boasts a number of beautiful medieval villages, where you can sample life at a slower pace and enjoy some traditional local cuisine, well worth a visit during your course at our school.

For students in their fifties and over who wish to learn French with students of a similar age, our French language school in Nice offers ‘Club 50+’ French courses. This course combines a French language course with a program of visits and activities.
Our school arranges accommodation with carefully selected French host families and in private studio apartments. If you stay with a French host family, you will be able to practise with your family the French language skills that you learn at the school.
Our school in Nice also offers ‘French host’ accommodation for students who wish to live in a French speaking environment, but want to be able to cook for themselves. These ‘French hosts’ are not families, but are usually students or young couples.
Our school in Nice works with a company that arranges excellent excursions during the weekend to local towns, cities and places of interest. These include trips to Monaco, Cannes, Eze Village, Antibes and more. An orientation on the first Monday gives you a tour of the city and insight in to what is available outside of lessons. Nice is a great location for watersports and it is possible to take part in diving, jet-skiing, parasailing and cruises. Your French language skills can be put to good use around the city in the afternoon and the school’s office is more than happy to help students who are looking for something extra to do during the week. This can include film evenings, French wine and cheese tasting evenings, an introduction to Bocce and points of interest around the city such as: The Opéra de Nice, The Palais Lascaris, The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St Nicolas, Musee National Marc Chagall, MAMAC and other museums/art galleries.
From the flat and serene Promenade des Anglais, to the excellent views from Castle Hill; from the Old Town to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Nice really does offer something for everyone!
