This trip would be ideal for students currently studying for their IGCSE or IB Diploma in French, or those about to do so. Beginners are also welcome! The main aim is for you to become more confident in your ability to communicate, to spend enough time immersed in French, to start thinking in French and to express yourself more fluently and naturally.

Costs will include:

  • Return flights to Nice.
  • Full board accommodation in local French families (two students per family) or in the language school residence for Yr 9 students.
  • Twenty 45-minute French language sessions (mornings only), focusing on communication activities and spoken competence.
  • Daily afternoon cultural trips to Antibes (including the Picasso Museum) , Cannes, Monaco, Nice and more physical activities such as an aerial rope park in Grasse, a hike up from the coast to the ancient hilltop village of Èze, another along the Antibes coast line and some games of “pétanque”. Transport for these will involve local trains and buses.
