The Centre International d’Antibes is now widely recognized as a gold-standard French language school in the South of France for anyone wishing to learn French in France.
We know that coming to France to learn French is a real investment, and we respect your commitment by consistently offering the most up-to-date teaching methods.
The school offers French courses tailored to meet the needs of any group: French courses in France for adults, French camps in France for kids and teens and personalized French courses for school groups.
Just a stone's throw from the town center, the Centre International d’Antibes French language school is in a renovated old provençal farmhouse with classrooms, a restaurant and gardens with panoramic sea views. Moreover the school teaching has been awarded the highest ratings by the French and European evaluation agencies (Label FLE and Eaquals respectively).
From April to October, 6-17 year-olds attend our language camp, the most popular in Antibes.
In summer, we expand our list of destinations and the French camp in Cannes plays host to teens whilst the Premium French camp in Juan-les-Pins accommodates kids and teens of all ages for an exclusive program in a unique setting.
Finally, thanks to our partner schools, you can attend a French summer camp in Nice, Biarritz or Paris.
For short-stays of up to 5 weeks, most students opt for our standard courses in the morning or our full-day intensive courses.
Of the students who take classes in the morning, many opt for one of the five thematic stays such as French for seniors, French with Meditation, French with sport, French with Gastronomy and French for the whole family.
Finally, for immersion in France lasting more than 5 weeks, most students register for the "budget stay” package including tuition and accommodation at highly competitive prices.
We are well aware of the requirements of our partner teachers, as well as the need to offer competitive prices and comprehensive logistical support from the moment the school group arrives in France.
Moreover, French courses, activities and accommodation are generally “bespoke” and designed by the teacher in liaison with our teaching department and our “hosting” service.

Established in 1988, our partner-school is universally regarded as the gold standard for those wishing to learn French in Paris.
In addition, the school offers short and long term courses for adults as well as language stays in Paris for young people.
Our partner ACCORD-PARIS has been awarded the FLE label for providers of French as a foreign language.
In the 30 years I've been doing this job, I've always sought to understand the reasons why foreign teens and adults want to learn to speak French.
I believe that every language offers a unique perspective on the world and whilst English has long since gained global dominance, it seems to me that the benefit of learning French lies simply in the need not to conform to the single world view of the dominant language.
With its sights always set on a fairer society, the revolutionary culture of France has made French an alternative to establishment thinking. As such, perhaps learning French in France carries with it an idea of resistance in the collective imagination of French students who are open enough to come share in our culture.
We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
There’s no straightforward answer to this question, because it all depends on your motivation, the type(s) of language(s) you already know, the study materials you have access to, the country in which you are learning the language, the amount of time you have, and so on.
These days, language immersion courses are seen as a proven approach for anyone hoping to take up or improve their skills in a foreign language. These kinds of courses allow you to really “dive in” to the foreign language and culture that you want to study.
French is one of the most widely taught languages in the world, and is also one of the most frequently used, with more than 300 million speakers spread over every continent. This makes it the fifth most commonly spoken language in the world, behind Mandarin, English, Spanish and Arabic. As both an official and cultural language, it is important in the worlds of business and diplomacy.
There are many personal and professional reasons for learning French in France.
French may be one of the most beautiful languages in the world and also one of the most widely spoken, with 200 million French-speakers across five continents. Moreover, French is one of the official languages of the UN, NATO, UNESCO and the European Union.
In general, it takes on average at least three months of immersion in France to understand or speak French fluently and six months to understand the implicit meaning and nuances of the language. Obviously, this varies according to your proficiency and the amount of work you put in. In order to learn French quickly, we recommend total immersion.
