In May, we had the pleasure of welcoming the French for 50+ for 15 days. These students came from far and wide (Scotland, United States, Japan, Switzerland and Germany ..), but all were united to share their love for French language and culture.
Mornings were dedicated to French language lessons, with an emphasis on speaking. Students were able to discuss various topics such as news, culture and French cuisine … You can even find their presentations here.
Afternoons were spent exploring Nice and its spectacular surroundings…
During these 15 days, the students were totally immersed in French culture!
They unearthed Nice’s unique corners, mysteries and secrets unknown to tourists… and tasted local specialties such as socca, pissaladière and tapenade during an enjoyable evening at “Pipo” restaurant.
At a quintessential French « wine and cheese » tasting event organized by the school, students became acquainted with a wide variety of delicious French cheeses and sophisticated “Chateau de Bellet” wines.
All these cheerful and sociable moments were concluded with a visit to the Chagall Museum and the Matisse museum, brimming with works by the highly influential artist who was as equally captivated by the astonishing beauty of the region as our students.
Then we went to explore the picturesque town of Antibes and its famous cape, the charming hilltop village of Saint Paul de Vence, and the Chapel Folon.
We also visited the incredible Phoénix Park and Museum of Asian Arts in Nice.
The breathtaking medieval village of Entrevaux in the Alpes de Haute Provence, which is renowned as being one of the most beautiful villages in France!
These 15 days were full of unforgettable moments, joy, discovery, sharing and conviviality.
Our students certainly have a wealth of happy memories to take home, and we hope to see you next year!
The next French for 50+ course will take place in September and October ! Join now !
