Student Testimonials:
Images of Family-friendly Courses at France Langue & Culture on the French Riviera - Summer 2024"My experience was extremely positive and pleasant, the School teachers (Isabelle, Christine and Paul) are excellent, as well as very nice people (I would like to mention our fantastic Director, Edmond, too) and the other students were great and it was very easy to socialize with them.

Moreover, it was much more than I expected as to the quality of the people that I met and I highly recommend such an experience."

"I had a wonderful 2 weeks in St Raphael this summer, and enjoyed 2 full weeks of hot Mediterranean sunshine in early June. The course was everything I expected and more.

We students were allowed to discuss the needs of the group and received the instruction we all needed. Written work was enjoyable and entertaining and the opportunity to speak French freely with the teachers and students,without embarrassment, was just what I wanted.

Lunch at the local restaurant with the group is a must, the food was excellent and the conversation most entertaining in both English and French. I would recommend the course to anyone needing to immerse themselves in French Language and Culture."
