From Monday to Friday, students take French classes that are open to all levels with a maximum of 15 students per class. Our teachers aim to motivate our students to talk in a safe environment by guaranteeing continuous progression during and after their stay.
By focusing on the essential grammar skills for each level, our teaching method builds student confidence. Interactive workshops and role play promote learning throughout the immersion in a fun way.
After school, students can get together with friends and take part in a wide range of activities or spend an afternoon at the beach relaxing or playing volley-ball.

This course is aimed at students wishing to make rapid progress.
It complements the morning classes and students work on their spoken language skills. Here, in a relaxed atmosphere, the teacher seeks to establish automatic responses, helping students to reproduce and research information and assimilate language acts and structures in line with the objectives of each level. For this, the teacher facilitates discussion and encourages everyone to contribute through starter activities to prompt oral communication, conversations, role play and debates.
