Classes

Classes are organised according to the students’ age, their interests and the group objectives.

  • General French classes
  • Specialised classes: exam preparation, business French, medical French, tourism and hospitality French, etc.
  • Classes combined with a cultural activity or sport: French and French heritage, French and French wine, French and golf, etc.

Sessions are organised around an activity, enabling the students to communicate as much as possible in French, increasing their fluency: role-plays, questionnaires, debates and other activities...

You choose the class frequency. For example, 15 classes a week leaves free time in the afternoon. A more intensive learning programme of 20 to 25 classes a week would maximise your French language learning.

If you prefer not to take French classes, we have plenty of other options available. We would be happy to help you organise a programme of activities and excursions to help you discover the city, the surroundings and the French culture.

Leisure, cultural and sports activities

We organise plenty of leisure, cultural and sports activities so you can discover France in your own way, through your own interests. Guided tours, excursions, sports, shows, food and wine tastings, social events, and much more! We know the region and its seasonal events well, adapting our programme to ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable and well-rounded French experience!

We are aware of the difference between each group and all groups will be treated accordingly : we are here to make sure that get the most from your time in France.

Accommodation

We have several different accommodation packages to meet your needs for French learning, budget, length of stay and the size and type of your group.

Families

If you want to discover French life, be part of a family, practice your French and make progress quickly, then staying with a host family is ideal. Our host families, carefully selected by our housing service, are happy to welcome you into their home. You can share some or all meals with the family, participating in discussions.

When you travel as a group we are careful to select host families that meet your requirements: whether that be individual or shared accommodation in the same home, or finding families that live in the same area, etc.

Students spend the night with the host family and come together in the morning for their daily activities.

Group members can also get together in the evenings in a restaurant, or go out after dinner with their host families.

Residence halls

These international residence halls offer rooms and amenities to be shared with other residents: showers, WC and kitchen are often communal areas that encourage socialising with other residents from different countries. In some residence halls, rooms are equipped with a private shower and/or a small kitchen area.

This type of housing is perfect for groups looking for an economical stay in France: you can enjoy the independence of having your own room, coming together as a group every evening in the common areas.

Apart hotels and serviced apartments

These are residential buildings with fully equipped studios or small apartements generally rented per week. All accommodations have a private shower or bathroom, a kitchen area and a living space with a table for meals. Typically, bed and bath linen is provided.

The advantage of apart hotels is the large range of hotel services on offer.

This type of accommodation combines independent living and the amenities of a fully equipped apartment, with (various levels) of hotel services. The advantages of this type of accommodation for a group, is that you can all be together on one site. In addition, you can benefit from a certain level of comfort, like a private bathroom and dining room, you can also get together in an apartment for supper now and then!

Hotels

We offer a large range of hotels to meet every budget.

A hotel stay means you can enjoy freedom of movement and greater proximity to the school. As well, the daily services offered by hotels provide a real level of comfort. Each member of your group can enjoy his or her room, meeting up after another exciting day.

Meals

Our schools are in or near the town centre, and close to many snack bars, restaurants and cafés.

If you choose the option of full board in a host family, they will provide you with a packed lunch for weekdays. Evening meals are eaten with your family to encourage your language practice. Depending on the option you choose, you can alternate eating in with the family, and eating out with the other members of your group.

You should be aware that breakfast in France is a light meal, and doesn’t include hot or savoury foods, unless you are staying in a hotel, which often provides a savoury buffet (cheese, meat, etc.).

If there are group members with special dietary requirements (vegetarian, allergies, etc.) or medical requirements, you must inform us beforehand.

Arrival transfers

We organise transfers upon your arrival according to your type of stay, the size of your group, your accommodations and your budget.

Our team is ready to furnish price estimates for a package tailored to your needs, the size of your group and the length of your stay. Contact us today!

Safety

We do everything we can to ensure the safety of all our students, regardless of age, during their stay. We recommend 1 chaperone for every 15 students, to ensure their safety at all times.

Host families enforce a curfew for students under the age of 18. Each student is aware of the rules for community living and must follow these rules.

“ Everyone at France Langue Nice went out of their way to make sure that my students and me had productive and positive experiences. 

Not only did they make all of the arrangements for home-stays and transfers, but they helped me to enroll my son in a local school and organized visits to Antibes and Eze that my students had specifically requested. What’s more, the students enjoyed their classes and made real progress in French.

I did not have high expectations of Nice before this trip, and now I’m already thinking about my next visit. Yes, there are many tourists, and some areas fit the stereotypes of the French Riviera jet-set. But I’ve been impressed by the natural beauty, the friendliness and general courtesy of the Niçois, the great food, and—as someone who lived for many years in Paris—the weather! ”

“ The school in Bordeaux has an excellent teaching staff that is willing to go the extra mile to help students have a good experience.

The teachers are always very accommodating and will answer all questions from the students even if it is off topic.

The instructors were very experienced and allowed for the students to progress in the French language.  They did a great job of evaluating each student from the beginning, then building a plan for improvement.  This was the real benefit for the students as they were able to enhance their linguistic and grammar skills, learn more advance terminology and phrases, further their cultural knowledge and accomplish specific language/culture related tasks, thus continuing and improving in their study of the French language.

The accommodation in host families was a valuable part of this training. Little English was spoken with the hosts, which is always the intent.  This aspect of the immersion allowed for a much higher return on training outcomes than the students residing in a dormitory campus or hotel."
