French for Teenagers: Cannes 15 to 18 yrs

Cannes Teenager 2020Student ReviewsView Video

If you’re looking for a fun residential course and immersion in French the course in Cannes is ideal. CESA students really enjoy putting their French into practise in Cannes and love the social environment, with its international mix of students. It is best suited to the older teenager, looking for more independence than other French Teenager courses offer.
It’s very popular and places on campus become fully booked ~ so early reservations are advised!

Course Description

The courses are more academically based than the courses held in other French Teenager centres, yet they still aim to stimulate student interest and keep the lessons dynamic. Language students can follow a one to four week French course, in this beautiful Riviera location.

The course is appropriate for teenagers who are independent, and mature enough not to require constant direction from group leaders.

Students can choose from four course options, all of which will cover general French language skills, appropriate to different French ability levels

Optional social activities provide contrast and bring an additional element of fun to the overall programme. The French language college staff are aware that the students are on holiday and will do all they can to help students enjoy their French experience, both in and outside the classroom. Course content in detail Teenage language students love to learn French in the wonderful campus college environment in Cannes. This language college is highly regarded and  becomes fully booked during July and early August.

The town is famous for its international film festival in May. During the summer months enjoy the bustle of the central zone and promenade along La Croisette or the long golden sandy beaches for which the town is best known. The Cannes French language college has an excellent academic record and is a year round language college for students aged 16 yrs+, during the summer 50% of the student body will be 15/19 yrs of age. There are a great range of facilities; both in terms of French language learning (a computer room, a college theatre on site and a well-stocked library) and generally (a small gym on campus, a nurse on site, a cafeteria, a table tennis, volleyball and basketball area, a central private courtyard, private sun bathing terrace and student bar), that few other French colleges can match. It is also just a stone’s throw away from the beach and a 15 minute stroll along the seafront to the centre of Cannes.
