I had an amazing 2 months stay. Nice is the perfect town to relax, meet people and study French. I recommend staying here and visiting all "Cafe des langues" after class. Profitez-vous :) I felt the same and may do the same as Matisse: "Quand j'ai compris que chaque matin je reverrais cette lumière, je ne pouvais pas croire en mon bonheur. J'ai décidai de ne pas quitter Nice et j'y ai demeuré pratiquement toute mon existence."

I had Brigit and Laurence as my teachers. Both of them are enthusiastic and you can tell they like teaching. I was pleased with them very much for showing genuine interest about where I’m from. I’ve taken many French Lessons in my life and this school was by far the best.

The pacing was a bit slow due to many new students coming in per week but there should be no problem asking to skip levels if you feel like it's too slow for you.

I liked the most my teacher Blandine. She is really great.
the biggest problem of the course was to include in the same class students with very different levels of knowledge of French. Furthermore, lots of time was lost in new student presentations every Mondays. But overall, everything was above my expectations. Very happy for choosing Actilangue and Nice!!

Nice has a lot to offer its visitors: its famous Promenade des Anglais, its old town, its museums and roman ruins.
