In summer we offer the opportunity for young people to be fully immersed in the French culture and language, motivating them in their French studies and allowing them to learn the language in-country. We teach using active and dynamic techniques to reinforce their knowledge of French, which is often passive. We always select our best teachers to offer a quality service to these students. It is also possible to learn English with the same programme.
International House Nice summer camp is located in a very safe district of Nice, near the sea and the city centre. It is near our main school in the Estienne d'Orves boarding school, at 13 avenue d'Estienne d'Orves, 15 minutes walk from the seafront and 25 minutes from the Nice old town. The students will live and do all of the activities and classes in the same school, creating a great atmosphere for learning and having fun. The campus can accommodate 100 students and the cafeteria, classrooms, well-equipped bedrooms (two- or three-bed with shared bathroom) and large school yards complete the immersive experience.
This program is intended for students who have studied English or French for at least one year. Complete beginners are NOW accepted on certain dates but participants must be between 10 and 16 years old. Classes are made up of 15 students maximum with a similar level of French or English. The teaching is based on practical activities and role-playing allowing everyone to participate actively in class and learn to speak French in a good atmosphere. INTERNATIONAL HOUSE's teachers are specialized in teaching French or English to young foreigners and do their utmost to ensure that the teaching techniques are well adapted to their audience. Classes start at 9 am and finish at 12:15 pm and take place from Monday to Friday except on public holidays. At the end of their stay, each participant will receive a certificate indicating their level of oral and written French or English. We maintain the reputation of INTERNATIONAL HOUSE schools by ensuring that our students receive a high quality education, tailored to their needs.

Our family programme allows parents and their children to study French in different schools but with the same timetable, during the summer months.
This is a splendid way to enjoy a family holiday while improving your spoken French. You can stay in various types of accommodation including residences, host families and hotels.
We have a new course for children aged 4 to 10 years old during the summer. Instead of traditional classes, they will take part actively in sports, music and dance, all in French. It takes place at a nearby school, just a 5 minute walk from our main school at Rue Rossini.
