The Program

Morning program

Monday to Friday, 9 am to 12.20 pm (including a 20-minute break)

These courses offer teaching in general written and spoken French, delivered in a friendly environment. An online French skills test is completed before arrival, so that students can be placed in a group appropriate to their level. Each level has its own curriculum that follows Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) recommendations.

Speaking, listening comprehension, writing skills, grammar and pronunciation are all covered in class. The small group size (maximum of 12 students) and the length of the general classes (3 hours every morning) mean that teachers can monitor each student’s progress.

  • Active teaching
  • 12 max
  • All levels
  • 1 lesson = 45 minutes


In the classroom, the teacher combines a classical approach, particularly during the explanations given to the group, with another approach: the active pedagogy, which has made the reputation of the Centre International d'Antibes. More than a methodology, the active pedagogy is a philosophy, a way of teaching which gives a range of didactic activities and techniques to work on the students' skills according to their level.

The teacher supervises and organises the interactions in small working groups. The class becomes a friendly place, that fosters communication. A dynamic is created to accelerate the students' progress, to encourage their desire to learn and to gradually develop their autonomy.
