French Teacher Refresher Course, Nice

Nice is an elegant and lively city on the French Riviera with an impressive range of cultural festivals, galleries and museums, and a mild climate all year round.  The old town of Nice is famous for its cobbled alleyways, restaurants, street cafes and colourful markets and it is easy to visit picturesque countryside areas of the Provence region.

Our school is located near a pedestrianised street  near the Promenade des Anglais and the beach with plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops close by.  This French Teacher Refresher Course is offered on two dates in July – see below for full details.

“I found my teacher to be excellent. He was always well prepared and had fantastic pace in every lesson and so we quickly covered a variety of grammatical topics as well as various other topics. Classroom speaking activities, done in pairs or in groups, were fun and really pushed everyone to be the best they could be!”

What is the process for Erasmus funded courses?

  1. Choose which course, start date and type of accommodation you would like to book and contact us
  2. We temporarily reserve a place for you on that course whilst you apply for funding through the Erasmus + programme.
  3. When you find out the results of your funding application, you pay a deposit of £150 to secure your place on the course. You do not have to pay anything until you have found out if you were successful or not.
  4. The full balance is then due 8 weeks prior to departure
  5. The application for funding is managed through Erasmus +, and as your language course provider, we provide you with the supporting documents (confirmation letter and invoice) for your application
