French course for children in Antibes(8-11)
The beautiful town of Antibes sits on the stunning French Riviera, an area that truly seems to personify France with its elegance and sophistication. Home to a staggering 25km of beaches, Antibes typically experiences 300 days of sunshine per year, so it is not surprising that it has attracted a wealth of celebrity admirers, including Picasso!
Close to both Nice and Cannes, Antibes has been an important trading post for centuries and the strong links to the sea can be felt throughout the town, from Port Vauban, home to luxurious super-yachts to the enchanting Château Grimaldi, keeping watch over the harbour.
Courses in Antibes
This course has been designed specifically for kids aged 8-11 years who wish to study French exclusively with students of a similar age on the beautiful French Riviera! This course takes place in July and August.
Students receive 20 French lessons per week, usually scheduled in the mornings from 09.00 until 12.20. The fully-qualified, native French-speaking teachers use fun activities to encourage students to practice speaking French, thereby improving their oral skills, as well as inspiring them to continue with their French studies when they return home!
Students aged 8-11 years will stay in one of two student residences and will have lessons on-site. Bedrooms are shared with 1-3 other students of the same gender and similar age and all meals will be provided at the school (unless on excursions, where a pack lunch is provided). In both residences students are fully supervised by staff members who stay on-site. The facilities offered at both residences are excellent and include fully-equipped classrooms, a cafeteria, a TV room, a swimming pool and sports grounds.
The locations of both residences are ideal for children. The first is in a quiet, residential area of Antibes, whilst the second is located on the edge of an enchanting pine wood.
Students taking this course will be fully supervised at all times and are not permitted to leave the campus without an accompanying member of staff. There is little free time on this programme as students will be kept busy with their French lessons and activities, but any free time is taken within the campus.
This programme includes an extensive range of activities suitable for students of this age group, including sports, games and excursions to water-parks and zoos, or local cities such as Nice or Monaco. Students will be encouraged to try to communicate in French as much as possible, to continue to help them develop their oral skills and their confidence. This is also a great way to meet lots of new friends from all over the world!
This programme has been specifically designed for young students aged 8-11 years of age and so offers a very high level of supervision, so that students are able to enjoy learning French in France. The lessons take the form of fun and exciting activities, with the emphasis placed on improving oral skills and confidence.
