What our students think about our French summer courses?
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.
Pour tous ceux qui souhaitent apprendre le français, j’aimerais 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'accueil 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!
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.
C'était parfait le temps sur la Côte d'Azur! Les profs super gentils, les activités passionnants et la meilleure famille d'accueil. Merci pour me faire parler français et me faire sentir plus confiante! Grâce à vous je fais maintenant mes études en France!!! Merci pout tout!
Grace adore ses cours de français - elle préfère même étudier avec vous plutôt que d'aller à la plage ou faire de la voile. Je constate qu'elle a fait de bons progrès.
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.
Tout d’abord, il faut vous remercier pour tout ce que vous avec fait. Vous étiez toujours disponible pour nous aider. Depuis 10 ans, nous passons nos grandes vacances en France, toutefois, grâce à votre programme linguistique les vacances cette année étaient les meilleures. 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 enjoyed the 4 week intensive class in Cannes. I will do it again and have recommended it to my friends and colleagues. I learned the fact that French is a thinking language. You must apply yourself to get most of it. All the staff is prepared and willing to give you the best experience possible!
C’était une expérience géniale, qui a dépassé toutes mes attentes. Les leçons étaient très intéressantes et structurées. J’ai beaucoup apprécié mes professeurs et la manière de nous mettre au défi pour nous faire apprendre plus et progresser. Ma famille d’accueil était formidable et amicale. Merci encore une fois d’avoir tout organisé pour moi. Amicalement.
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 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.
Les filles sont très très contentes et aiment de plus en plus le français. Nous avons de très bons souvenirs de vous, de tous les professeurs et de l’école. Mes filles ont demandé si on peut revenir l’année prochaine!!! Alors, j'espère à bientôt !
We have come back with lovely memories from our week in Cannes, learnt a lot an enjoyed a wonderful family holiday. Hopefully we will come back next year!
Many thanks for this class – it a was very inspiring experience. I took this class as a pre-beginner, without any understanding of French – not even one phrase. I had an amazing surprise, that after one month I became able to read simple text and understand conversations. It’s great! Our teacher Madina – is fantastic! Parfait très, très bien!
Jimmy had a very good time at the school and improved a lot. He is grateful to this French host family for all their kindness and hospitality. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
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!
I was pleased to read your kind words and reports about my daughter Marie. I thank all of teachers at your school for being so patient and helping her to improve French! She also had so much fun learning with you. Your lessons were very insightful and interactive ! I would like to sincerely thank you for such a fantastic host family. Marie-Brigitte, Michel and their amazing girls made Marie happy to stay with them and feel like at home ! Again, please accept my sincere thanks.
My friends at school all said how unlucky I was to be going on the French summer school, but in the end, I really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the morning French classes and fun sailing lessons in the afternoon. I met wonderful friends and can’t wait to come back next year !
Nous sommes bien arrivées à la maison et avons passé un très agréable moment à Cannes et à l’école. Tous les professeurs étaient bons et m’ont aidé à apprendre le français. Je les remercie et envisagent de continuer à apprendre plus de français. Zoe aussi a passé un bon moment et nous aimerions revenir l’été prochain.
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.
I'm very thankful for your special attitude for me and my daughter. I was extremely pleased by staying at French Summer Classes and happy to have an opportunity to see you and to have new friends and knowledge there. Warmest regards and best wishes.
Madina and Christel were great! Very professional and skillful teachers. They were really able to combine interesting, challenging and stimulating lessons. Also, they complemented each other. Good administrator. Thank you for this positive French learning experience !
Merci beaucoup pour votre école. C’était une grande expérience pour nous. Plusieurs de mes amis sont intéressés d’y aller l’été prochain. Et nous espérons aussi revenir! Bien cordialement.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for Adil’s trip to France and the intensive course. He thoroughly enjoyed the course and the stay with his French host family of whom he spoke very highly. We shall look to sending Adil in the future and will recommend the school to our family and friends. Warm regards.
Just a quick email to thank you for having Caoimhe and Tiarnan again this summer. 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.
Just a quick note to say your tutor in Grasse was great; thanks for the referral. My niece was thrilled with her French classes. The teacher did a great job getting her to participate in the class with a warm, engaging style. She is definitely an asset to your school. Merci.
My daughter and I really enjoyed the week – thank you to all the staff who made us feel so welcome. The programme was nicely varied and we both benefited a lot from the course.
