Biarritz is well-known as Europe’s surf capital, with its long sandy beaches and great surfing conditions all year round. Our school in Biarritz runs a specific surfing course, giving you the perfect opportunity to combine your French tuition with surf lessons! However, Biarritz is also a great destination for non-surfers, offering lush green countryside with beautiful views for miles. The best way to learn French is to learn the language in France, so choose a location for your French course where people are friendly and happy to speak to you, such as Biarritz. It’s a small town, so it’s easy to meet people and make friends, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to speak French with the locals!
