Summer French courses for non-beginner children

French summer courses for non-beginner children in Cannes – Age between 6 and 11 years old

French summer programme for non-beginner children in France

Our summer French courses cater specifically to non-beginner children aged between 6 and 11, who already possess some knowledge of French. Tailored for students enrolled in French, international, immersion, or bilingual programs, these courses offer a unique opportunity for skill enhancement and preparation for the upcoming school year. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the French Riviera, children engage in enjoyable language-focused activities that contribute to the development of their communicative, reading, listening, and writing skills.

Our program is designed to provide a linguistic boost for the rentrée (back to school) period. Children not only have a great time, make new friends, and enjoy their linguistic holidays but also gain a significant advantage by advancing their French language proficiency. Join us for a summer of fun, learning, and preparation, ensuring a positive head start for the academic year ahead.
