New students sit for a language test – except complete beginners and children. The results of the French test allow us to place students in an appropriate group. During this welcoming morning, students meet each other, enjoy welcome drinks and croissants.

Last day

You will receive a certificate, attesting your participation in the French summer courses, the number of hours and your level. Children and teenagers have a performance (songs, drama, poetry, dialogue, etc.) in which they show what they have learnt.

Study material Teachers provide you with copies and verb book during the course. The student must provide a notebook and a pen. A pocket dictionary would be useful.


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!

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 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.
