Course Description

The French language college in Antibes offers French courses with other teenage language students, who have a similar French language level. Students are immersed in France, speaking French with native French speaking teachers and the “animateurs” (who help organise the social activities each week) and are encouraged to socialise and make the most of their time in France.

The French language lessons are based on songs, films, comic strips or other current documents of interest to stimulate student interest and to keep the lessons dynamic. 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 want to enjoy their time as well as study, and therefore do all they can to ensure students enjoy their French experience, both in and outside the classroom.

Antibes/Juan les Pins offers everything the French language student needs, all the benefits of the Riviera, with the charm of the picturesque streets of Antibes, beaches and some lovely Autumn sunshine (though we can’t always be sure of the weather!) and yet is only 13 km from Nice airport. The college has offered Teenage French language courses for many years now and provides programmes over the Easter, half-term and Summer holidays.
During the Autumn, Easter and May & June, the classes are offered at the main college site, so whether living in the residence or with hosts, students will have to commute to the college for their language classes.

The combination of the French language lessons with an activity programme has real appeal! Every morning, from Monday to Friday, students study French in the classroom and then each afternoon are kept busy by the dedicated French group leaders, who organise a range of sporting, social and cultural activities either on site or in the local area. The weekends are dedicated to activities or free time. So if you like to be busy, this is the perfect French language course for you!

Activities

A range of activities are offered as an inclusive part of this programme including 1/ a half-day trip 2/ a full day trip and 3/ a weekly barbecue or Crepes party. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings the group leaders offer a fun evening programme with games and entertainment.
Additional activities are offered as a rolling programme of events during the summer at additional cost. Students are advised of the options once in France, via a notice board in the school, all taught through local clubs by certified national qualified instructors).
No activities take place on the first or last day of a course, as the group leaders are busy helping students settle in, or depart at the end of their stay.

Accommodation

Student placement in residence rooms and host accommodation is based on achieving the best mix of age, nationality and language ability to ensure the best social and working environment, for every student.

Residence: Used during Easter, May, June & the Autumn
Just 600m from the beaches and 500m from central Juan-les-Pins, it is a great location to make the most of all the town has to offer. Simple, basic standard rooms for 2 to 4 students. Each room has a private bathroom.
