General French Course

Our general French courses are group lessons designed for students of all levels. They will allow you to study French in the morning and give you time to discover the French Riviera and our beautiful city of Nice in the afternoon. Whether you are a complete beginner or more advanced, we have groups of all levels. Not only is this course a great way to improve your French, it is also the best opportunity for you to get to know other international students, make new friends and learn about the French culture in a dreamlike setting. This is our most popular French programme at International House Nice.

Benefits of our General French course

With our GR20 course, you will study French in the morning, Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. On your first day, prior to the course, our teachers will test you so that they can allocate you to the right group. You will only be with students of the same level.

Our groups are small; we have an average of 6 students per classroom, which means you will get attention from the teacher and be able to interract with them as well as with the other students. 

The lessons cover various aspects of language learning, such as vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing skills. You will learn how to express yourself effectively in different situations, engage in conversations, participate in discussions etc. Improving your communication skills in French will open up opportunities for personal and professional interactions with French speakers.

Finally, our General French course will allow you to learn a lot about the French culture and gain insights into the Francophone world.
