Azurlingua, Nice
Duration: 2 weeks

It was my first language study trip abroad and I must say that it was a wonderful adventure, which will remain engraved on my memory all my life. It gave me the opportunity to learn a language, meet people from the four corners of the world, to be independent. This is why I would like to take another language course abroad in the future. The French teachers were very good and always available when I needed them. I would also like to thank the ESL consultant, which recommended me a course and destination that met my requirements perfectly.

Azurlingua, Nice
Duration: 4 weeks

I spent 4 weeks at Azurlingua in Nice. There was a great mix of other students at the school; British, Italian, Turkish, Colombian, Spanish, Venezuelan, German, Swiss, Russian and many more. Nice wasn't as big as I had thought, but it was close to lots of other towns which was great.

Our teacher was great and did all she could to encourage participation. I definitely made good progress on the course - I can now speak some basic French! I booked my trip about 10 days before the start of my course, so it was a quick turnaround. I was impressed that ESL bettered a quotation that I had received for a different language school. I really enjoyed my time in Nice, and am so pleased that I decided to study French. I would definitely seriously consider taking another language course with ESL in the future as a direct result of completing this course.

Host family
A very warm Mediterranean welcome and total immersion in the French language make this accommodation option the most practical way to keep developing your language skills outside of the classroom. Staying in a single room (double on request), you will benefit from half-board or breakfast only. Bed linen is provided, but you will have to bring your own towels. Most of the host families live 20-30 minutes away from the course center by foot, but some may be around 30 minutes away by public transport.

Campus Central residence (from 16 years)
The residence is housed within the school building. Choosing between a single room and a twin room (shared with another student), each with a private bathroom and WC, you will have a fully equipped kitchen, TV and telephone at your disposal on each floor. Bed linen is provided while bath towels are not. The common rooms are cleaned every day. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the residence.

The nearest tram stop is 5 minutes' walk away, offering easy access to every part of the city. While there is no kitchen on-site, each room is equipped with a small refrigerator and there are many nearby restaurants where you can enjoy attractive discounts with your student card.

Campus Central Student Residence

General information

Cannes, Monaco, Beaulieu, Grasse, Antibes Menton, Saint-Tropez and Saint-Paul-de-Vence are all on the agenda, as are plenty of options in Nice itself. Its old town, port and picturesque districts are also worth particular attention. Museums and galleries, monuments and gardens bear witness to the artistic sensitivity of a city which has welcomed artists throughout the centuries. With its flower market and the Palais Lascaris, its Mediterranean cuisine and melodious accent, Nice will enchant you with its exquisite character. The school also offers sports activities including diving, canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. Each activity is an excellent opportunity to practise French with the other participants. And, in the evening, it's time for restaurant outings and discovery of the lively nightlife of the French Riviera!
