As part of the OFII (French Immigration and Integration Office) public contract, International House Nice teaches foreigners who do not master the French language. We provide French as a language for integration (FLI) courses enabling learners to master French in their everyday life. We offer courses for levels A1 to B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Applicants must have signed a Contract of Republican Integration (CIR) with the French Office of Immigration and Integration (OFII).
The CIR must be signed by all new foreign nationals over the age of 16, who are legally resident in France and who intend to reside there permanently:
When the CIR is signed at the OFII, the public takes a placement test in oral and written French. Depending on the result obtained, the applicant is given a summons to follow either a compulsory course (A1) or an optional (A2 / B1) course.
These French courses are FREE of charge and are financed by the OFII.
A1 course (compulsory)
