Learn French and enjoy the Côte d’Azur

Young adults, thirty-somethings and seniors organize their time differently.

Seniors who want to learn or improve their French enjoy taking classes in the morning, discovering the Southern environment in the afternoon and having free time at night.

At night, our students will be housed in studios with all mod cons in one of our club residences from which they can reach downtown Antibes and beaches on foot.

In addition, Cannes (6 miles) Nice (12 miles) and Monaco (30 miles), are all places of interest to make your stay as fulfilling as it is enjoyable.There are no French classes at the weekend when our reception team will accompany an excursion instead.

Are you on vacation in France out of season? The Côte d’Azur enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year. For 10 years we have been organizing French classes for seniors in France and now play host to over 20 nationalities.

Why 50 or 60 year-olds should choose to learn French on the Côte d’Azur ?

In his Invitation to the Voyage, Charles Baudelaire wrote:  “There all is order and beauty, luxury, peace, and pleasure.” It is this invitation to travel at the heart of the Côte d’Azur that we invite senior students to discover. Choosing to study French in Antibes also means experiencing the carefree way of life in one of France's most beautiful regions.
The language stay in Antibes enables senior students to take advantage of the sunshine, sea and the tranquillity of a small town where everything is reachable on foot, but most of all to explore all of the emblematictowns of the Côte d’Azur (Cannes, Nice, Monaco, Saint-Paul de Vence…)

Students can discover the art of Mediterranean living, an extraordinary cultural and artistic heritage on which the greatest artists have made their mark, and try typical Provençal gastronomy in authentic restaurants.
Antibes is the ideal base for exploring the region's cultural diversity and learning the language in optimal conditions.

New linguistic and cultural experiences.

The Centre International d’Antibes offers a syllabus that is carefully designed to meet the needs and interests of the over-50s.

Small group sizes (maximum of 6 people) facilitate better communication and greater bonding between learners. This is a real advantage that helps to break through shyness and accelerate the development of oral skills.
 At the end of classes, the program continues with Excursions activities that immerse students in Provençal culture and give them the opportunity to continue to practise French in a fun and informal way.
The seniors program offers personalized learning as well as new acquaintances which students can continue to develop in the evening when they meet back at our residences.
