Learn French in Cannes

With over 80 years of teaching experience the Cannes college offers a wonderful study environment to suit ALL linguistic needs.  The wide range of French language courses on offer ensures the college is always busy (and completely full over the summer months).

Cannes is 20 miles west of Nice, on the French Riviera, with golden beaches attracting tourists throughout the year, but particularly in the summer months. The pleasant climate, the chic image, its coastal location and ease of access to the whole of the Cote d’Azur makes it a wonderful language course destination, with particular appeal to students in their teens and 20’s.

CESA Plus Points:

  • A wonderful residential campus and just a stone’s throw from the beach
  • Excellent on site facilities
  • Located in the heart of the French Riviera
  • Very sociable but gets really busy in the summer, so please book early!
  • Cannes’ high season runs from May (due to the Film Festival) through to late September

I met some amazing people and some friends I hope to keep for life. My French has come on very well, but I still have a long way to go!

I was impressed with the lessons themselves and the class sizes were always relatively small, which meant there was a good teacher to student interaction. The school was comfortable and clean, the staff and teachers extremely friendly and always willing to help. Would I go again? Yes! I’d also recommend Cannes to other students; I had some great moments there and made lots of friends! The weather was fantastic too.

About the School

2021 Note: We are awaiting opening dates for the Cannes school.
Please check with CESA staff, for updates.

Established in 1931, the French language school moved to its present site in 1981. It is set in its own private campus, around a central open-air courtyard. It is just one road back from the beach and a 15 minutes stroll from the heart of the town and has parking (for cars and bikes) on site.

One of the main reasons students choose to study in Cannes is because of the Campus style college residence.

Situated on 3 floors, the school has 24 good-sized classrooms and a large dining room serving three meals a day. The facilities also include a gym, a bar, a TV and video room, a theatre (seating 140 people) and its own volleyball and basketball court. When taking a mid morning break students can relax in the central courtyard in the shade of the mature palm trees and make plans for that evening’s entertainment.

The school offers a truly relaxed and highly enjoyable study environment. In a designated internet room, students have email access. There is a library of books, papers and CDs to help students study.

At its busiest during the warmer months of the year, students must book early for the May to September programmes.

The staff are always on hand should you have any questions once on your course. The French language school requires all their teachers to have university degrees (teacher for French as a foreign language) and extensive experience teaching French as a Foreign Language.
