I want to thank you for an amazing month in Cannes, my children loved their time at the language school. Because of his bad experience with his french teacher here in Delhi Meika hated the French language and anything to do with French, he really didn’t want to attend the language school and was very nervous but it didn’t take long for your teachers to show him that learning a language can be fun. He actually said to me one day ‘Mum, I can’t wait to go to school tomorrow’ which I honestly did not expect to ever hear from him. So thank you!! Jahlan and Aji both benefited from their time at the school also and I know their experience has helped them immensely in settling back in to the French school here in Delhi. I want to thank you also for being so willing to accommodate Jahlan and his desire for more challenging work. I was very impressed with your kindness and professionalism. Not only was their time in class valuable but equally the new friends they have made, the fun they had on the beach and exploring the surrounding places also made their month in Cannes a very enjoyable memory.

French summer courses for non-beginner children

We had a delightful time in Cannes mixing family vacation with French language lessons for our children. The school was very easy to access from our vacation apartment rental in downtown Cannes and the proximity to the local provençal market and shopping was excellent. The school was casual but extremely well organized and managed. We very strongly recommend this to anyone considering such a trip and, with any luck, we’ll be able to repeat it !
