Kate Ainsworth: Easter A level course (Read full review)

Improve your French in Nice, and enjoy your holidays whilst preparing for the exams which mark the end of your school education.

This exam preparation programme is designed to give high school students the linguistic skills which will enhance their ability to tackle the challenge of their French exams. The courses are focused on concrete skills they can directly apply, whether they need to improve their oral or written French. Students will be given homework on a daily basis that teachers will correct. On request, they will be provided with extra material for personal study. Last but not least, they can sit for a mock exam (written or oral) directly related to the subject matter covered during their course.

Language skills covered: Oral and Written Expression, Grammar Exercises, Oral and Written Comprehension, Phonetics, Vocabulary and Syntax

The French A’ level revision course has been put together to help A’ level French language students (or European equivalents) to overcome any linguistic weaknesses, giving them the confidence to communicate effectively in French and to develop their knowledge of the French language. Students are able to polish up general French language skills including revision of grammar structures and pronunciation as part of the Standard Course.

French Language School

The French school in Nice is situated several blocks south of the railway station, 200 metres from the Nice Etoile shopping area, 400 meters from Place Massena and 10 minutes walk from the Promenade des Anglais. Located in a quiet residential area, the school is situated in a lovely mansion, surrounded by similar styled houses from the turn of the 20 th century. The  school year offers French classes year round. It consists of 10 classrooms (with air con), a library, a computer room with internet access and Wi-Fi. There are hot and cold drinks machines and a small courtyard, shaded by trees where students can relax during breaks.

A range of activities are available and offered at extra cost. Students are advised of the options offered each week once in France via a notice board in the Centre.

One Afternoon: Trip to museum or other local sight with guide (allow EUR 10.00)
One Evening: Guided Quiz night, bowling evening or Salsa night (allow EUR 12.00)
However the facilities of Nice tend to encourage most students to make their own entertainment out of class and we find that one week students prefer to explore the city on their own or with other students, during their free time.

Hosts offering half-board, live in apartments in and around the city and may have more than one student staying with them at a time. They are normally French couples, divorcees or widows who are happy to host foreign students and can provide a welcoming environment and the opportunity for social conversation each day. Host families are committed to: – welcome and lodge you in the best conditions – integrate you as much as possible in the family’s life – assist you in the language learning process – offer you a French or continental breakfast every morning – offer you a complete and varied dinner (usually dinner is taken between 19.00 and 20.30) – supply you with bed sheets and towels and to change them every week – offer a clean, comfortable room with a window, furnished with a work table and a wardrobe – give you the keys of the flat or house Don’t hesitate to talk with your family about what you like upon arrival. Please inform your host family in advance if you won’t take a meal because you are going out or for any other reason. There is no refund for meals which are not taken. Of course you are welcome to make your own accommodation arrangements, but generally A’ level revision course students choose to stay with hosts.


Teenagers aged 16/17 yrs old will need a signed parental permission to be able to go out in the evenings. Parents must indicate that either:
1/ no permission to go out beyond 8.00 pm
2/ students are free to go out up to 11.00 pm in the week &/or at the weekend
3/ students can go out in Nice without restriction in the week &/or at the weekend *

*  If students stay out without restriction, hosts are not expected to stay up and wait for their return, whereas they will for an 11.00 pm curfew.

Parents cannot set alternative curfews as the college staff/hosts are unable to police them.
French language students, over 18 years of age are not subject to parental permission rules.

Travel & Transfer

One way collection on arrival at Nice airport by hosts: No extra charge The hosts organise the arrival transfer, assuming that students arrive between 09.00 and 21.00 hrs (students must arrive at a reasonable hour of the day). If catching early morning or late night flights, students have to make their own way to their accommodation by public transport.

Students can either make their own travel arrangements back to Nice airport by public transport, or book the college arranged taxi service (which is paid for in advance of the course).
