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 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!!
