About Academy of French Language in Nice

Learn to master French in the heart of Nice, the French Riviera. The city presents a unique multicultural atmosphere, blending the old with the new. Experience historical and cultural Nice whilst enjoying its world famous beaches and seaside resorts. Discover 'Historic Nice' (from the Greek and Roman periods), 'Cultured Nice' (from Matisse, Chagall, Cézanne to opera, theatres and jazz festivals) 'Spectacular Nice' (from promenades des Anglais, luxury hotels, resorts and villas) and life in the French Riviera.

The French language programs in Nice are designed to immerse participants in French. Classes are held at the Academy of French Language situated close to Nice's town center. The academy is centrally located in a historic building constructed at the beginning of last century on rue d´Angleterre. Close by is the famous shopping center, Nice Etoile, the train station, bus station, and beaches. In the summer, classes are also held on a second campus in Cimiez District near the Matisse and Chagall museums, Roman Arenas, and the Museum of Archeology.

The programs integrate all aspects of the language: reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, phonetics and vocabulary. The accelerated teaching methods allow participants at lower proficiency levels to acquire the language skills needed for effective communication in a short period of time, and for those at higher proficiency levels to attain expression proficiency at an abstract level. Topics studied include everyday situations, French culture, society, and history.

A wide range of free weekly excursions and activities expand participants' learning opportunities to outside the classroom. This ensures experience of the French Riviera, culture, life and surrounding French regions while being immersed in the language and society.
