The aim of this course is to offer children (boys and girls) the opportunity to spend a linguistic vacation in a pleasant environment on the Riviera. 

Depending on a child's level in French and age, children are placed in one of three subgroups. Whenever possible there will be participation by French children in the same age-group to insure a more realistic atmosphere in the classroom. Five to six children per sub-group.

Picture of Summer French Courses on the French Riviera"We really enjoyed the staff, the other students, and the location of the school was perfect. The fact that it was 1 hour from the airport gave us a sense of adventure and opened up doors to learn more about the other beach towns and villages surrounding St. Raphael. We will be coming again next year and bringing a few more friends."

"I would like to thank you very much for organisation and the course that Oisin, 17 y.o. attended this summer 2013 in Saint-Raphael . It was his first experience of being away from home in an unknown place and he was quite disorientated the first evening in the family.

However he messaged my the first morning of the course to let me know that he had arrived on time and he wrote that everyone was very welcoming and friendly.

He enjoyed the course very much and loved his afternoons on the beach with his fellow students! I was very impressed though by his ability to chat in French when he returned home.

It was obviously very helpful for him to attend the course and to be in France. The experience in France being so positive was the deciding factor for him to go and study in England and live with a host family there, so I am very happy for that outcome too."
