TESTIMONIALS

The school offers many activities that you can do after lessons. Nice is a magnificent and interesting town. I really enjoyed jogging on the Promenade des Anglais and reading a book in the Monastry in Cimiez. I took the train to Antibes (musée Picasso), Cannes (Festival de Cannes) and Monaco which are close to Nice. I would recommend studying at and discovering the Côte d’Azur with alpha.b to everyone.

The numerous afternoon and weekend activities allowed me learn lots of things about the amazing city of Nice and its surroundings. Thanks to these events, I immediately met lots of other students who become friend and who made this experience even more amazing.

In general I would say that Nice is a very calm and beautiful city with easy commutes to surrounding areas. And alpha.b does not only have great personnel, good courses and have engaged teachers but also provides sufficient information and guided tours of Nice, Monaco and more. New happenings are presented every week if you want to do something other than the usual, like salsa dancing or have a crepe-party!
