French course in Cannes
Take a French course in Cannes, one of the most glamorous cities in the Mediterranean!
Our school in Cannes
Our French school lies right on the seafront, just along the coast from the old town. Central Cannes is only a 15-minute walk away. The campus boasts excellent facilities, including on-site accommodation and free wireless Internet access! There are 24 classrooms, a student cafeteria, library/computer room, theatre, basketball/volleyball court and sun terrace.
Take a French course in Cannes, one of the most glamorous cities in the Mediterranean! Our French language school in Cannes occupies a self-contained campus, just moments away from soft white sands, washed by warm, clear waters. Beachside hotels line the famous Boulevard de la Croisette, housing exclusive bars and clubs. This is where celebrities hang out during the famous Cannes Film Festival and countless other festivals.
For a little more culture, explore Le Suquet, the old town of tiny cobbled streets and intimate cafés. Here you’ll find the superb Musée de la Castre, with its wealth of art from ancient civilizations. Le Suquet also offers superb views of Cannes’ sea of terracotta roofs marching down towards the Mediterranean. Past the shimmering yachts moored in the marina lie the idyllic Îlles de Lérins, where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned.
Courses in Cannes
You can learn French in Cannes at your own pace! Our school’s Semi-Intensive or Intensive courses consist of 15 and 21 weekly French lessons. These courses take place in same-level groups, so you can practice your French and socialise with your fellow students. Alternatively, Private Lessons are available, which allow you to completely customise your course to suit your own interests and requirements.
The Semi-Intensive French course in Cannes takes place in the morning from 09:00 to 12:00 every weekday. You will have three hours of French tuition with a 15-minute break from Monday to Friday. Therefore, this course consists of three 55-minute lessons each day and 15 lessons per week.
On the Intensive course, you take part in the same Semi-Intensive programme from 09:00 to 12:00 then have extra classes in the afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 13:00 to 15:00. This course consists of 21 lessons per week.
Group class sizes in Cannes are usually between 8 to 12 students and cover vocabulary, grammar, oral and written expression, oral and written comprehension, French language practice and communication. Lessons are held at all levels from complete beginner to advanced user.
If you prefer to book a set of Private Lessons at our school in Cannes, you can tailor this individual tuition for faster, more efficient, and focussed learning. Alternatively, if you are planning on going to Cannes already and just want to practise your French without focussing too much on grammar and written comprehension then contact us to discuss booking a set of six hours per week on the afternoon-only programme.
Enjoy the convenience and superb facilities of our school’s on-site Student Residence! There are comfortable single, double and triple rooms, with shared showers and toilets on each floor. Choose to stay on a half board or full board basis, eating two or three meals per day in the school’s restaurant. At weekends, brunch is served in place of breakfast and lunch. You can use the school’s free Wi-Fi connection in your room, and you’ll have easy access to the cinema, sun terraces and other facilities!
For a more authentic experience of France, live with a host family in Cannes and immerse yourself in the local way of life. Our school only works with friendly, welcoming families, who will happily help you to practice your French language skills. Host family accommodation includes breakfast each day, with some families also providing dinner. Of course, you can always eat in the restaurant or café on campus, if you’d prefer to do so.
Our Cannes school does not arrange their own activities in the afternoons as many students like to go to the beach after class. However, the reception team will be happy to advise you about things to do during your stay, so please do speak to a staff member if you would like any recommendations. Below we’ve listed some recommendations of our own.
You can grab an ice cream and go celeb spotting along the Boulevard de la Croisette, take a stroll along the sandy white beaches, or explore the old quarter of Le Suquet. You can practice your French with the locals by delving into one of the many street markets, or immerse yourself in a French film. For more active students, there are also opportunities to hire a bike, try paddle boarding, or go on a hike.
Cannes and the surrounding area has so much to see and do. Situated along the sunny Côte d’Azur, the city is a stone’s throw away from fascinating locations like Nice and Monaco. You could see more of the Provence region with a half-day trip through the countryside, taking in destinations such as the Îlles de Lérins, Grasse, and the picturesque hilltop town of Biot. If you are a little more adventurous then you can travel further during weekends. You could enjoy a trip on your own or travel with some of your new classmates to places like St. Tropez, Monaco, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, and even San Remo across the border in Italy!
