French course in Cannes, France!
Take a French course in Cannes, one of the most glamorous cities in the Mediterranean! Our French language school in Cannes occupies a self-contained campus, just moments away from soft white sands, washed by warm, clear waters. Beachside hotels line the famous Boulevard de la Croisette, housing exclusive bars and clubs. This is where celebrities hang out during the famous Cannes Film Festival and countless other festivals.
For a little more culture, explore Le Suquet, the old town of tiny cobbled streets and intimate cafés. Here you’ll find the superb Musée de la Castre, with its wealth of art from ancient civilizations. Le Suquet also offers superb views of Cannes’ sea of terracotta roofs marching down towards the Mediterranean. Past the shimmering yachts moored in the marina lie the idyllic Îlles de Lérins, where the Man in the Iron Mask was imprisoned.

You can learn French in Cannes at your own pace! Our school’s Semi-intensive, Standard and Intensive courses consist of 15, 21 and 25 French lessons per week, respectively. These courses take place in same-level groups, so you can practice your French and socialise with your fellow students! Alternatively, Private Lessons are available, which allow you to completely customise your course to suit your own interests and requirements.
Put your French to the test by taking a DELF exam! The DELF is an internationally recognised qualification for non-native French speakers. Our school can help you prepare for the exam, which you can take on-site at the school.
If you need to study French for a particular reason, a number of specialist courses are available at our school, including Business French, Legal French, French for Tourism and French for Teachers. Whatever your motivations for learning French, we’re sure to have a course for you!
Enjoy the convenience and superb facilities of our school’s on-site accommodation! There are comfortable single, double and triple rooms, with shared showers and toilets on each floor. Choose to stay on a half board or full board basis, eating two or three meals per day in the school’s restaurant. At weekends, brunch is served in place of breakfast and lunch. You can use the school’s free Wi-Fi connection in your room, and you’ll have easy access to the cinema, TV lounge, sun terraces and other facilities!
For a more authentic experience of France, live with a host family in Cannes, and immerse yourself in the local way of life. Our school only works with friendly, welcoming families, who will happily help you to practice your French language skills. Host family accommodation includes breakfast each day, with some families also providing dinner. Of course, you can always eat in the restaurant or café on campus, if you’d prefer to do so.
If you’d like a little more independence whilst you learn French in Cannes, why not let our school arrange a studio apartment for you? You’ll have your own kitchen and bathroom facilities, within easy reach of the school.
We want you to have an unforgettable time on the French Riviera, so our school organises a varied program of optional activities. Enjoy football, tennis, volleyball, snooker and other sports completely free of charge, as well as wine, cheese and crêpe evenings. Other activities, including horse riding, rafting, scuba diving, mini-golf, ten-pin bowling and parasailing, are also regularly offered.
See more of the Provence region with half day trips, taking in destinations such as the Îlles de Lérins, Grasse, the Picasso Museum in Antibes and the picturesque hilltop town of Biot. Full day excursions, usually during weekends, will take you further afield. Enjoy trips to places like St. Tropez, Monaco, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and San Remo, across the border in Italy!
