High speed learning of French in business class!

Idiom has specialised in the teaching of French to adults and is successfully established in a wealthy Belle Epoque building in the centre of Nice. High ceilings and intense light give the premises a feeling of serenity. The large sunny terrace allows international participants to meet up and exchange stories.

Courses for executives and professionals are organised around three units: you will study vocabulary, grammar and communication in an intensive manner, with a focus on the specificities of business French. Free Internet access via Wi-Fi, computers connected to the Internet as well as personalised advice and support by the trainers will help you upgrade your level in French in a minimum amount of time. You will benefit from 2 lessons per day in each domain. The teachers don’t use any textbook for their classes but tailor make their lessons according to the priorities and expectations of the participants. Such a flexible methodology allows for lively, interactive and effective courses. The morning lessons include conversations about specific themes and the learning of technical terms. In addition to these lessons, many participants take “a la carte” private lessons in the afternoon in order to focus on their specific individual needs.

Businesspeople, professionals, executives and a large number of MPs take advantage of this innovative and highly flexible method to learn or improve the jargon that is specific to their professional sector. An opportunity to build up interesting contacts and to network with people from the whole world.

Die Schule ist genial! Persönlich, kompetent, abwechslungsreich, tolle Lehrer und das Gebäude super! Alles bestens - würde sofort wieder diese Schule wählen. Ich fühlte mich sehr wohl. Schätzte die kleine Gruppe. Es wurde auf persönliche Anliegen/Ziele eingegangen. Straff, streng, aber dennoch amüsante Momente im Unterricht. Sehr persönliche Atmosphäre. Räumlichkeiten sind bestens! Das was ich hörte von Studenten, die eine Familie als Unterkunft reserviert hatten, war durchaus positiv. Alles bestens. Sehr sympatischer und kompetenter Guide (auch guter Fahrstil mit Bus) und die Lehrer sind auf Ausflügen auch super kommunikativ und aktiv.

Nizza ist eine wunderschöne Stadt und sehr gut geeignet für einen Sprachaufenthalt, da es sehr rasch mit dem Flugzeug erreichbar ist und neben der angenehmen Athmosphäre auch die Annehmlichkeit eines Badeortes bietet.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Although I only spend one week, I gained a lot from the course. The purpose of my study abroad was to gain an understanding of my level and confidence as well as my strengths and weaknesses. I learnt a lot but more importantly know what I need to do in order to completed my degree course back in the UK. »
School highlights
« Great location, nice building/outside balcony for breaks, good mix of people, professional and well organised. »
