The “Premium” program in Juan-les-Pins
Teens aged 12-15 16-17
This high-end summercamp, which has been open for over 5 years, has been very successful and now brings together some 40 different nationalities Juan-les-Pins is actually the name of Antibes's finest beach which has been connected to the town through urban development, making one single agglomeration.
French classes are in the morning from 8.45 am to 12.05 pm in classes of no more than 10 students.
Most importantly, teachers strive to create a fun atmosphere that is conducive to developing spoken skills so that everyone can become more confident in their ability to communicate in French.
Role play is a key tool used by teachers
Students will be put in a position where they need to defend an opinion or choice.
In the enthusiasm and desire to defend their point of view, reticence and limitations fall away and learning becomes natural.
In addition to learning the language, students will become more confident in their ability to express themselves in French.
Classes are held in a superb school with breathtaking sea views and students have lunch on site after class.
There are no lessons on the first Monday. You will take a test of written and oral French in the morning to assess your language level and assign you to a class.
Students are housed in a top-class campus that is comparable to the little “Junior Club Meds” that are well known in France.
Buildings are enclosed and secure, surrounded by gardens and offer air-conditioned rooms with all modern conveniences shared by two students.
Within the residences located just a stone's throw from the beaches and the hustle and bustle of Juan-les-Pins, students are free to come and go as they please in the company of the activities team. Students feel right at home in the gardens, television room, multipurpose room and all the spots where kids and teens love to hang out and take advantage of the wi-fi.
Note that only the Castel Arabel residence offers the pool which can be enjoyed by anyone on the “Premium” course.

The youngest students8-11
On the back of its success, this year the “Premium” course is open to students aged 8 upwards and offers students an introduction to French and the opportunity to enjoy exclusive activities and perks in a special setting.
For 8-11 year-olds, French classes in the morning tend to be focused on fun activities customized for a young class, overseen by a teacher who is used to working with young children.
No lectures but, instead, an interactive activity in the form of role play which motivates children to speak. Everyone wants to express themselves and defend their ideas and naturally loses their shyness and improve their spoken proficiency.
The goal: To get children used to wanting to make arguments in French so that they grow in confidence.
In a completely private and secure luxury residence 5 minutes from the beaches of Juan-les-Pins, students aged 8 to 11 will be completely looked after and housed in twin, air-conditioned rooms.
The activities team does its utmost to ensure kids feel at home. Group leaders instill a family atmosphere which will win the trust of the youngest kids who can have a carefree stay. Help washing, tidying rooms and doing laundry is all provided or overseen by the activities team in a motherly way.
