It’s easy to combine learning French with taking a break!

Are you wondering if it’s possible to spend your holidays studying without giving up all your free time and while still taking full advantage of the summer? Well, yes it is! At the Centre International d’Antibes, you can combine learning French with a holiday by the sea. Let’s talk a bit more about the Junior programme: in the morning, you will have the opportunity to attend classes, and in the afternoon, there are a number of options: intensive french course, sporting activities, a bit of free time... Swap your pen, rubber and exercise book for your flip-flops, a pair of shades and some sunscreen! There’s nothing like a bit of sunbathing, a game of beach volleyball or a swim with friends to relax after a French lesson. Whether you stay on campus (summer only), in the residence or with a host family, you will benefit from a genuinely immersive learning experience. If you opt to stay with a host family, you will get to practice your French every day and make fast progress.

Antibes is the perfect destination for a great holiday

Did you know that France is one of the world’s leading tourist destinations? Moreover, French is invaluable in lots of countries. The weather in Antibes is great and the beaches are fantastic. Sailing, dancing, visits to local towns, treasure hunts, karaoke, team sports – there are plenty of instructor-led activities for you to enjoy. Antibes is the last word in seaside resorts. The area’s Mediterranean climate and the town’s beaches have made it famous, and so it’s the perfect place for anyone looking to relax while also learning a language spoken by more than 270 million people throughout the world.

Holidays which take in both sport and culture

The Mediterranean Sea, also known in French as la Grande Bleue (‘the Big Blue’) will surprise you with each new day. Its coastline is home to some fabulous towns and cities: Monaco, Eze, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Nice, Juan-les-Pins, Cannes, etc. You will hear about these iconic places from your teacher during classes, and then you’ll have a chance to admire them in real life during your free time. Of course, the seaside is also about ports and beaches. Port Vauban in Antibes, for example, is renowned throughout the world for its yachts. Baie des Milliardaires (‘Bay of Billionaires’) on the Cap d’Antibes is full of tiny inlets. Less well-known than some of the other beaches, La Galice beach is another place waiting to be discovered. For all of these reasons, if you come to Antibes, you will create some unforgettable memories – trust me!
