A French Language course aimed at those who need to build on current skills or who want to kick start their French language learning from scratch with an immersion course in France. Long term Standard Courses appeal to Gap Year students and those looking for a Career break. The school does not require a minimum number of students to open a class. If you are the only person at your language level, the school will reduce the number of lessons accordingly (so 20 group lessons, become 10 private lessons per week).

* CESA recommends this school for adults.
Teenage students also attend the school, but we recommend teenagers book the Biarritz Teenager course.
