Have been there already in autumn and I loved it. Unfortunately, this time you cannot compare. The teacher was rather unfriendly and everything was very impersonal. I do not know if it might have been due to a lack of staff but this time, unfortunately, we were very dissatisfied.

Really motivated teachers, who tried hard to help you improve your language skills. They tried to make you feel integrated in the group.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Overall, the school is very good. It is located in the centre, near the main train station.
Other comments
The only bad thing is that the patio/garden of the school is always occupied. Due to the lack of classrooms, many lessons (especially the private ones) were held there so students cannot enjoy it.

If you like order and everything functioning like clockwork, this may not be the best school for you. But if you like relaxed attitude and fun approach to life and teaching, you'll be fine!
Other comments
Emphasis on speaking and not on formal grammar, which at my level was quite appropriate.

My second time there. Overall good organisation, but this time the teaching was a bit unstructured, and the level of some of the students was uneven .
Other comments
They are taking on a lot of students, good for business, but the result is a rather crowded and noisy environment, that at times makes it hard to concentrate during lessons.

I think that future students should try to speak french even if they do not know it. It will help them to overcome their language barrier!!!!
Other comments
Try to watch french films. Certainly at first you will not understand anything, but after 7 days you will understand. Do not be afraid to speak french if you make a lot of mistakes. It is normal. And I am sure that when you will come back home you will be proud of yourself.

There are usually not many advanced students of French at Azurlingua, so if you are an advanced student the course level is often too low for you.

It had free Internet Access and Wireless Internet in the hole building. Three teachers: Thierry, Genève and Sophie. They were really good. Furthermore you could find a "Monoprix"(like Tesco in the UK) near the school. And of course my host-family. I had a very nice old lady. She spoke to me for hours in French. She was really good (Madame Aimeur).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Don´t go to the very first part/meeting. It was really boring. If you really want to learn French look for other internal students who have the same intention. Go to Monaco(great cars) and Grasse(cheap parfums) with the bus (only 1,30 Euro).
Other comments
The school was nothing special. It was appr. 15-20 minutes away from the beach and the city center. I had three really good teachers. The others were average. If you feel that you are underloaded change immediately the class. Moreover in the last week we didn´t have any internet access because the responsible for it was on holiday. Something about Nice: A very nice city during the day in the near future. A very long tramway it's getting built in Nice. That is why the MAIN public transport line will not functioning until the end of 2007. Furthermore there is much dog poop in Nice so pay attention. Almost every bar is closed after 2 AM and after 3 AM there are really few people/nobody on the streets so don´t go alone then.
