I've searched for a French programme one year ahead of time to make the best choice. I flew from Prague to Nice in July 2017. Perhaps someday when I have grey hair, shaky hands and live with many cats, I might forget many things, but I will never forget my time in Cannes learning French. Lessons are colourful and the teachers are wonderful. My host family was so welcoming and friendly. French summer classes programme is the perfect mix of education and fun. We went to many trips to Saint-Raphael/Frejus, went to Eze, attended potluck on the beach and enjoyed sailing. To sum up, if you want to have a good time and learn new things without even noticing it, try this place.

Sophie came back yesterday and had really enjoyed the week with you - she spent several hours telling us all about it and showing us photos!
It had worked so well with Mme Corrine - they got on really well😊
She said how lovely it was to meet you and your colleagues and make new friends and improve her French at the same time ! Thank you for everything in making it such a good experience for her.

I had an absolutely fantastic four weeks studying at this French Language School in Cannes! I went alone but from the moment I arrived to the moment that I left I was made to feel very welcome and never once felt lonely. The classes were stimulating, challenging, and fun and the teachers always made sure that every student benefited from each class as much as was possible. One of the things that I liked the best about the school was the way that it really brings together a group of people of completely different ages, backgrounds, and nationalities and is therefore a very valuable life experience as well as a holiday. Thank you to all of the staff at French Summer Classes! I would highly recommend this school to anyone considering it and I hope to go back next summer!

Elise, student at Bangor University, Wales

Intensive French course and homestay program

I attended for 2 weeks over the summer in 2016 and had the most incredible time. The school and teachers are fantastic and my french improved hugely in a short space of time. This was helped by staying with a lovely French family (who wouldn’t let me speak English!) I found it was ideal to be completely immersed in the language and would wholeheartedly recommend this. I would love to return soon.

Christopher from England

I was a little sceptical before coming to French summer school but as soon as I got here I was welcomed by a lovely teachers. This year I struggled with some of my French classes at home but thanks to this language programme I was able to study and revise and get more confidence in understanding and speaking. I am extremely happy that I was able to come here and I am sure that this experience will help me through my school-leaving certificate. It is a great place to meet new people, have fun and also study and improve at school and I highly recommend it to everyone.

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.

I was very satisfied with my experience. The teachers took into consideration what I wanted to learn and incorporated my learning needs into the class curriculum. Small class sizes provided good opportunity for discussion. The School’s Director listened to my concerns and made adjustments to accommodate my learning needs. My host family provided wonderful meals and excellent conversational opportunities. Overall, this was a great experience and I would strongly recommend the school!

It is my third summer at French Summer Classes in Cannes la Bocca. I enjoy studying there because my teacher, Manel, is really nice and fun : I learn new words, fun songs, play games in French and meet new friends. Ever since I’ve started attending this summer school, I’ve been learning a lot about the beautiful language of France and its culture. I’m glad I can travel there in the summer and see how things work outside of the U.S.A

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 !

L’école était très bonne, et j’ai aimé tous mes profs. Elles étaient fantastiques, et mes leçons étaient très bonnes et amusantes. Je suis arrivé hier soir, et la France me manque. Merci pour tout ce que avez fait. Je pense que je vais vous voir l’été prochain! Merci!! Avec tous mes meilleurs voeux !

Last summer I went together with a friend to the South of France to learn some French. As we were both beginners we were very happy that the school offered courses for beginners. The meeting with our teacher was a great relief. She has the ability to lead a group with a warm firm hand, humor, love with a great patience and the pedagodic structure that only a well educated teacher can do. As a native with a great interest for culture she also gave us the advantage of taking part in the rich oppotunities of cultural events at the Cote d’Azur. I can warmly recommend this school and know that students surely will learn and enjoy the French language and culture.

French Summer Classes wound up being the right choice for me. I found the school through the Internet and selected it because it seemed less showy and large than some of the other schools that came up in my search. My teachers were terrific and my French language skills improved markedly. Since I am an advanced speaker of French, the teachers provided me with the option of doing extra homework which they would correct on their own time. That was a big plus for my learning. Merci beaucoup to everyone at school!

I’m very happy to report on my time spent at French Summer Classes because I met wonderful people and significantly improved my French skills. I can’t say enough positive things.

If you want to learn to speak French, don’t hesitate to try this French language school !

Pour tous ceux qui souhaitent apprendre le français, j’aimerai conseiller cette école. Mon fils et moi, nous avons longtemps cherché un cours de langue française, et avons finalement décidé d'aller à Cannes. Cette expérience a surpassé toutes nos attentes. Si vous voulez commencer à apprendre une langue ou d'améliorer votre connaissance du français dans une famille d'acceuil qui vous fait sentir à la maison, avec les enseignants de l'école qui deviendront vos meilleurs amis, qui non seulement vous introduiront à la grammaire française, mais aussi partageront avec vous leur vie, leur culture et les traditions du sud de la France, et où vous pourrez combiner les études avec les vacances merveilleuses, vous trouverez cet endroit à Cannes-la-Bocca. Encore un grand merci à tous mes chers amis Alima, Christine, Alicia, Francoise, Benoît, Fidel ... qui ont fait nos vacances à Cannes inoubliable!

I first came as a student to Passeport pour les langues back in 2014. I enjoyed my time so much that I returned the following year. The teachers do a great job of maintaining an effective learning environment for students of any level. I made a lot of friends and, through the excursions the school provides, I was able to see parts of La Cote D'Azur I wouldn't have otherwise. Whether you're strictly looking to increase your proficiency in French, explore the genuinely beautiful province, meet some amazing people from around the world or any combination of the three, I would definitely recommend Passeport pour les Langues. I've been going every summer and haven't regretted a second of it!

I must say that I made some nice memories in the school. Learning French is just one of the many things that the place does offer. Its the chance to call another country, another world and culture, your home. I loved it and I'm deeply grateful for all that it gave me.

Ujwal from India

I really enjoyed the way French was taught via spoken exercises, role-plays, games and dialogues. It's an approach I don't have in my school in Latvia. I also enjoyed very much to learn French songs and believe it has helped me pronunced words correctly. During my stay, I've savoured the opportunity to try new and unusual sports such as paddle and pirogue. Home-stay with with Mrs Sonia was wonderful. She was caring, thoughtful and helpful all the time.

C’était une très bonne expérience, un mélange de choses – apprendre le français, rencontrer de nouvelles personnes et profiter de vacances sur La Côte d’Azur. L’école a convenu à toute la famille, nous avons fait beaucoup de progrès et les leçons nous ont encouragés à continuer à apprendre le français. Nous espérons revenir l’année prochaine. Je vous souhaite une agréable année. Jusqu’à l’année prochaine. Bien cordialement.

I just want to thank you for all your help to both me and Jonathan over the past two weeks. It was very re-assuring for me to know that I could turn to you if I needed anything.
Jonathan has gained so much confidence and knowledge from the language course – it’s unbelievable that so much can be achieved in such a short time. He’s really motivated to repeat this experience next year, or before, if that is possible. When you have the time, do let me know what courses you offer at other times in the year.

I really like my experience at French summer school in Cannes. One of the best part was that there were really nice people and everyone got along with each other very well and made new friends from different parts of the world. It was good that we did an excursions in Eze-sur-mer and picnic on the beach for the team building because probably this helped as well getting to know each other better. My teacher Manel was an extremely good teacher with all the patience and smile in the world, she really encouraged me to go on studying French.

I had a great time at school and certainly learnt quite within a week and best of all was perhaps the experience of living it a little more like a local rather than a tourist. I really enjoyed my homestay experience. The French host family was so kind and thoughful.

They really enjoyed their time at the school. In three years you must be very proud of how much Caoimhe has grown to love the French language and culture and how much her skills have improved. Thanks to your language school.
Tiarnan I feel for the first time has begun to like the language and I am delighted with his progress this year. Caoimhe and Tiarnan have made great friends at your school also.
Thank you also for organising a tutor. We look forward to returning to Cannes again next year.

As an adult, I was looking for both a great holiday and a way to pratice my French. My teacher seemed to know exactly how to tailor the classes to my needs. The class was a perfect combination of classroom study and practical conversational French. She was a real delight that enjoys teaching and sharing her beautiful country with others. She worked as both a fantastic teacher as well as a tour guide. I enjoyed my time in the South of France and hope to come back. I would recommand this school for a wonderful learning experience.

We are a family from Mexico. My two boys, 15 and 13 y.o, have attended French summer courses for two consecutive years during the summer. It is our great pleasure to recommend French Summer Classes. Our teacher is highly inteligent and has great analytical skills as she figured out the perfect way to get the boy’s attention and get them interested in the language. She also has great communication skills. Her oral articulateness is both clear and consice which made it so much easier for the boys to learn. I would have loved to have a teacher like her.
