Learn French in Nice



Learn French in Nice and experience one of France's most vibrant cities! Located in the French Riviera, on the dazzling Cote d'Azur coast, Nice enjoys a year-round mild, Mediterranean climate and is well known as a popular destination for tourists. The sea air and excellent quality of light have also attracted many famous artists to Nice, and today the city is home to museums and galleries dedicated to Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall as well as the must see MAMAC (Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain).

Students who learn French at our school in Nice, will have the opportunity to really ‘live’ the French language and experience the lifestyle of this beautiful part of France. Stroll along the Promendade des Anglais, Nice's seafront promenade and most iconic attraction, where you will find the exclusive Hotel Negresco; climb up to the Colline du Chateau where you will find fantastic views over the Bay of Angels and Nice's picturesque harbour; and explore the narrow streets of the old town, just minutes away from our school and is home to daily markets for local produce, fruit and flowers.

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.
