30+ Course content

30+ French is a course which has been designed for our adult clients who are looking for an intensive program of French classes, but in an environment with people in a similar age group.

The course content is similar to that of the Intensive French Course and devoted to a practical application of your knowledge.

Although all our French courses are available for all adults, during summer time the majority of students in standard or intensive courses are between 18 and 24 years. So, if you are a mature student, and prefer to study with people your own age, we highly recommend the special 30+ Course.

The 30+ course is also guaranteed to take place from 9 am to 12.20 and from 13.45 to 15.15?

This course is designed to be intensive, but you still have the possibility to book only the morning 30+ course.

Testimonials

Alpha.b was ideal for my language stay in Nice. The charming villa is well situated in the heart of the town with modern equipment and a pretty garden. We worked in small classes with adult students and students of different nationalities, in a familial and friendly environment. The teachers are all so attentive and very professional – an excellent team behind the scenes! You were always friendly and flexible, thank you very much!

I chose alpha.b for the guarantee that there would only be students of 30 years of age or older in my class. The lessons were well structured and lively. Our teacher, Jean-Philippe, was great! I could see that he loves teaching and I made lots of progress. Alpha.b offers lots of different activities after lessons. I went to a wine and cheese tasting which was both interesting and fun. I had a great time in Nice and I strongly recommend the 30+ course for everyone.
