Free time

Your Language Study Holiday in France from A to Z

A language study holiday at CIA is THE perfect mix of relaxing and learning in the place to be: the French Riviera!

Classes made-to-measure

At your arrival, our team will greet you at the airport! Your first steps in France are guaranteed stress-free: no need to painfully try and use your three words of French vocabulary in order to find your way! We will make sure you enjoy a smooth transfer from the airport to the language center. It’s just like home, if not better! The day following your arrival, you will take a test, nothing too scary, just an assessment helping us put you in the class that best fits your level. This will allow you to progress quickly: in our classrooms nobody is bored and nobody is lagging behind either! French lessons take place every morning from 8:45 to 12:05. To make sure you start the day well, the language center prepares a generous breakfast, served everyday from 7:30.

A diverse program of activities

Everyday, after a nice lunch, our team of activity leaders takes you out for afternoons full of fun and discoveries. You will visit the area of course — Cannes and Antibes — but also the islands of Lérins, the hills above Nice: all of the places you might not be able to reach on your own. We have many sports and entertainment activities prepared for you: from beach volley tournaments, sailing afternoons and other watersports. But we are also aware that you may want to enjoy some freedom, so we have free afternoons planned too. In the evening, it’s another story! Our activity leaders have tons of imagination: from barbecues to movie night, and cabaret shows to disco evenings, we promise you some unforgettable times!

Living on the French Riviera

For our summer programs, the most popular accommodation option among our students is to live on campus. It is an opportunity to spend more time with your friends and to enjoy many facilities: swimming-pool (that’s right!), TV room, and sports grounds. The classrooms are only a few steps away from the bedrooms: ideal if you want to sleep just a little longer in the morning. We also have host families; this option is perfect for those who prefer a family environment, an immersion into the French culture, and more peacefulness. These families are handpicked and we visit them regularly to make sure that everything is going well! Of course, they all live close to the campus. A language camp holiday at CIA is THE perfect mix of relaxing and learning in the place to be: the French Riviera. So don’t delay: book your space for one of our French courses for teenagers.
