• Our goal is to create a lively classroom environment through the active participation of the students by prioritizing verbal skills.

• We teach you to communicate in French as rapidly as possible through role playing, verbal presentations and practical conversation.

• Although the student is encouraged to speak as much as possible, we do not neglect reading, grammar or pronunciation. The teacher listens and corrects.

Photos of Family-friendly Courses at France Langue & Culture on the French Riviera - Summer 2023•  “For Ronny and I, the experience in your summer course had been very positive and we both can profit of our language study. We have very nice memories to these two weeks vacation in St.Raphael and we are thinking to come back next year.”
Beat, Switzerland

•  "I was there for 2 weeks, but at the end of the second week, I wished I could have stayed there longer. It was an amazing experience ! I had the opportunity not only to learn a little bit of French, but also to make friends with people from different countries.

I recommend this course because you can learn another language in a small group, make friends, visit places and be in a beautiful city. All are very attentive. It is impossible to go there and not have a good time there." 
Ingrid & Jennifer, Brazil

•  "My family and I loved St. Raphael and miss it very much...I wish you all the best!"
Falguni, Canada 

•  "We, the family, had a really nice time in Saint-Raphaël. We parents learnt a lot and met lot of wonderful people and families. The kids (aged 6, 9 and 12) loved it! And we intend to come back!"
Lindmarker Family, Sweden

•  "It was an unforgettable experience for me, and I really did meet some amazing people, many of which I am still in contact with now. At that point I was in the middle of my A-level French at school, but my major weakness was speaking.

It was very well organised and structured, and it didn’t only improve my French incredibly, but also gave me confidence and gave me an insight into the French culture. I’m really looking forward to returning next year, but hopefully this time for longer!

I would recommend it to anyone, because there is a lovely atmosphere, and the teachers are so helpful in targeting exactly what you need to improve on." 
Lizzie, UK
