Student opinions about Centre International d'Antibes, Antibes

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.
Liked
I attended both the château campus and the port and I loved the location of both. The château school is a beautiful building with an amazing view of the mountains, while the port is right on top of an Irish pub, in the main part of town, and right next to Port Vauban and the beach (although it is a bit further from the Castel Arabel residence, but I enjoyed the walk). I also loved my teacher Céline and the small class environment, I felt I learned so much as well as getting to know everybody. The town of Antibes is so lovely, and Juan-les-pins too. Living at the student residence was an awesome experience and I met so many cool people.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Make the most of it! Do your homework, speak up in class, get to know the other students in your class and at the residence, and explore the beautiful surroundings of Antibes and the nearby towns.

Other comments I am a disorganised person myself so it did not bother me too much but the company did seem a little disorganised. On my second week on Wednesday, I was moved into a different class that was far too hard for me with no warning or explanation, but thankfully by the end of the week they realised this and placed me in a more suitable class with my first teacher again.
Course: Standard course 20 - 4 weeks

The location was good, whether in the city or in the Château, because it was easy to get there by bus. I could even get there in 10 minutes. I was in the city in 30 minutes on foot. The lessons are good. The teachers explain well and French is ALWAYS spoken. New words are always explained, not translated.
Disliked
The week we had classes at the Château, we only had chairs with a tiny folding table on them. There is no space at all. Real desks would be better. The language level of the students in one class was too different. A2 and B2 together is difficult. Information about the buses and prices to the students would be helpful.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss I wouldn't know, because the interests of the participants are totally different depending on their age. For example, I was in Grasse at the Fragonard factory. Not so interesting for teenagers, I bet.

Olga is a good teacher who responded very well to our wishes and weaknesses. Balance of grammar and exercises and lots of conversation. Young dedicated team of the school who accompanied us on the excursions and when picking us up from the accommodation.
Disliked
Desk space too small. Outdated school, renovation urgently needed. Modern technology to make lessons interactive was missing or defective. Teacher had to show films on her laptop. Food was very poor. A lot ended up in the rubbish. After the second day, I no longer ate at the school.

Bad food at the language school! I would gladly pay another 100 euro to get good breakfast and lunch. The studio at Castel Arabel was dark and damp. School building and teachers were very good.
