• This is a unique opportunity for you to meet students and families from a wide range of backgrounds, but all with the goal to immerse themselves in the French language and culture. 

• Based on their age and French language ability, your child will be placed in the class that best suits them. Class sizes are kept small (maximum 8 students) which ensures that each child receives individual attention.

• Junior and high school students sit a language test, which enables us to place them in a course at their level. Each week, a quick evaluation of the students’ levels allows us to assess the progress being made and move them on to the next level.

Yonita & Lara, UK – attended French summer courses for adults and children three years in a row

•  “It is my third summer at French Summer Classes in Cannes la Bocca. I enjoy studying there because they really help me improve on pronouncing how you say French words correctly when your native language is not French. My teacher, Manel, is really nice and fun : I learn new words, fun songs, play games in French and meet new friends.

Ever since I’ve started attending this summer school, I’ve been learning a lot about the beautiful language of France and its culture. I’m glad I can travel there in the summer and see how things work outside of the U.S.A.”

Convenient Location in the Seaside City of Cannes:

• Because of the convenient coastal SNCF train and French bus system, you can live without a car and still easily visit most of the picturesque towns along the Mediterranean.

• Our classes take place in a lovely 19th century period building, which, during the academic year, houses a Catholic school. Our building is equipped with 5 classrooms, a student lounge, a large gated yard, and a private parking lot.

• We’re only a stone’s throw away from the sandy beaches (400 meters), the Provencal market (less than 100 meters), cafés and restaurants, in the middle of the lively and one of the most pleasant areas of Cannes.
