French Work and Study in Nice

Location 

Learn French at our language school in Nice in the beautiful French Riviera. Situated in the city while being just 10 minutes walk from the beach, in Nice you really do get the best of city sights and conveniences coupled with the beauty and relaxation of the beach. Surrounded by its own garden, where you will be able to relax at break times, the modern, well-equipped French language school is right next to local shops, the beaches and the old town. 

The language school building has its origins in the late 19th Century and has been beautifully renovated to provide light and airy classrooms, all with air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. The school also boasts a full computer suite, a library, private garden with patio area and a lounge area where students can relax in between lessons.

Language Course

The course comprises 20 lessons which concentrate on learning and actively using French. The tuition is very much practice oriented. You will participate in group sessions alongside other students of a similar level, with lessons focused on improving all aspects of the language; speaking listening, reading and writing. There are four, 45 minute lessons per day and these take place during the morning.
 
You will be given a written assessment before you travel and a speaking assessment on the first morning before lessons in order to place you in the group most suited to your ability level. Classes have an international flavour and a lively feel because they are grouped by ability not nationality or age.

Work Placement

There’s no replacement for using your language skills practically in real life situations and in the country where the language is spoken. On a Work & Study trip you will have the opportunity to improve your French language skills in the morning lessons and then be exposed to the language in a practical work situation for the afternoons, giving you the optimum chance to gain confidence in all areas!

Typical placements include shops, restaurants and hotels, though a wider range of placements are available. Our placement team take great pride in securing placements that meet our students' needs. See here for a link to our business categories.

Accommodation 

To completely immerse yourself in the French language and culture there is nothing better than staying with one of our carefully selected French host families. They will not only introduce you to the French way of life and help you practise the French language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school and provide half board accommodation (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your Work & Study course starts to the Saturday after it finishes. Subject to availability and at a small surcharge, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates.
 
You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in the FAQ section of our website. 
 

Transfers

A host family stay is included in the Work and Study package and they offer a free pick up service on arrival at Nice Airport. The tram service in Nice is excellent and students are able to make their own way to the airport for the return journey as by this time they are familiar with the city. We are happy to offer details for travel on public transport on request.

Optional Activity Programme 

The school offers a range of social, sporting and cultural activities including: salsa evenings, tapas evenings, karaoke evenings, cheese tasting workshops, cooking workshops, beach volleyball, segway tours, boules, bowling, visits to other local towns like Antibes, Monaco and Cannes and trips to the Matisse, MAMAC and Chagall art galleries.
