What our students said about Cannes

5.0

Rating: 5/5

It is absolutely wonderful. So many of the amenities of a big city, yet in a seaside town. I as never short of activities, from the film festival, to suddenly some of the world's biggest musical stars were playing on the beach! It was simply wonderful. In Cannes I experienced the best six weeks of my life. It isn't the cheapest and don't leave your valuable on the beach when swimming, (even if it's dawn and no-one appears to be around). But personal safety was always good and the college has really tight security. Face scans and no entry to the campus outside of class hours for those who are not living there. If you're thinking of going to Cannes as an 18 year old like me, to start the route to independence, it couldn't be more perfect. Just the right amount of safety, but also some real world exposure. Other people who were older also seemed to really enjoy it as well.

Cannes is a beautiful city. However, the climate, especially the weather in summer, is very exhausting. The air quality is also very poor.

Campus International Riera

The teacher was very good! He managed to teach students with different language levels at the same time without it getting boring and so that everyone could learn from each other.

Collège International de Cannes

I left the course and stay at the Collège International de Cannes early because it did not meet my expectations in any way. The impression that results from previous comments no longer finds any correspondence in reality. It could be a beautiful place and an inspiring school - but those days are definitely over. We were told that there was a change in ownership and management. As a result, there is a lack of communication, organization, leadership and responsibility at all levels. There was no greeting for arriving course participants, no information about the college and organizational processes, no leisure activities. There was a lack of free access to materials and learning aids (library, computer). Classes seemed disorganized and random. The participants were not divided according to their language level, there were underwhelmed and overwhelmed fellow students in the courses I attended. Although I arrived at B1, I was assigned a B2 class. Participants from A0 to B2 came together in the "conversation course" - it remained a mystery how successful learning could be achieved under these conditions. The teacher spent a lot of class time complaining about the difficult situation at the college or discussing organizational problems that arose. Targeted work was neglected as a result. Her teaching methods seemed outdated and not very motivating: Frontal teaching, written individual work, question and answer sessions in which everyone was allowed to say something, grammar, dictation. I missed the use of videos or audio samples, playful elements and actual conversation. Having booked an intensive course at this school proved to be an expensive mistake. Of the 21 hours booked per week, only 16 were held (note: public holidays). The value for money is not correct at all. It's exorbitantly overpriced for what's on offer. There were relatively few participants in the language courses, the majority of whom were teenagers and young adults. There were hardly any older course participants and therefore the contact possibilities for me were rather limited.

The position, friendliness and teaching. Plus so many students from all over the world. I really enjoyed being on campus and so close to the beach and town.
A really special place and moment in time. One of those places positioned in such a perfect spot that you'll remember your time there forever.

Collège International de Cannes

Our teacher, Mary Helene was incredible, as were our classmates. They were both very welcoming and energetic and I felt like we had a good bond. No one was left out.
We'd recommend it to anyone looking to learn and grow at any level. Everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating. We hope to do it again soon.

The school is well organized: reasonable entrance test, excellent teaching quality.
The bar could possibly be improved, in particular by extending the offer of food and drink.

The location is great and the teachers of the first two weeks were great, with the second week being exceptionally good. Unfortunately, the last two weeks I had a replacement teacher that was not competent to teach the level I was in.

Collège International de Cannes

The faculty was good but it was difficult to teach students of different levels in the same group. A pity!
The groups are too large. There are different levels in the same class, we were 20 students which delays learning. There were complaints but they commented that since August 15th was a holiday, there were only 4 days left and they had teachers on vacation. We did not think it was appropriate when summer courses were offered. Teachers should be present, not on vacation.
