French courses for the family in France (Antibes)
The “Parents and children” course is aimed at families who need to share accommodation combined with separate French classes for parents and children.
Morning to evening, 6 days a week, children take part in our French language camp whilst parents can choose whether or not to take French classes for adults. The opposite is also possible.
Only one family member needs take part in our course for the whole family to stay in shared accommodation.
Accommodation is in single or double studios with all mod cons in our residences that are just a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Our residences are completely secure and private and you will mix with students or other families on our French courses.
