Teaching Methods:

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

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

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

Student Testimonials:

Photos 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.

We had many occasions to have lunch or dinner at the restaurant, as well as to explore together the wonderful Saint-Raphael, which I consider one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my life.

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."

Costanza, Italy

•  "..The course, for me, paid off so much it is unbelievable. It's helped me especially with listening and speaking - I now find I can speak a lot more fluently.

I'm not fluent in French, but find it a lot easier and can speak a lot more naturally and at a better pace when speaking to people - It's given me a lot more confidence when speaking as well.

St Raphael has helped me so much both for my year abroad and for the 
future.  Edmond was fantastic, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone!"
