French Language Course in Biarritz

Our programme is specially designed for students of all ages who wish to improve their french while exploring the culture, gastronomy and landscapes of the Basque country during their free time.

Biarritz is a prestigious and elegant seaside resort on the French Atlantic coast. Long sandy beaches, sumptuous buildings and villas in eclectic architectural styles, Biarritz has kept its charm over the years.

The town is rich in culture and history with a combination of French, Basque and Spanish lifestyles, evident in its mix of cuisine, architecture and local customs.

It is also a major surfing destination with some of the best surfing spots of Europe (see here) and a very appreciated golf destination (see here).

Summer is the ideal season to make the most of this seaside town, it is also worth it to visit through the seasons. Tasting, visit the museum of the sea, hiking, golf or casino, there is plenty to do the all year round. In winter, you could enjoy a thalassotherapy after attending the french classes in the morning.

Once you have visited Biarritz’s historical sites and enjoyed your time at the school, take some time to explore the cities close like Bayonne for its exquisite gastronomy or try Basque pelota, the traditional sport of the region.

Biarritz is a small town, so it’s easy to meet people, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to speak French with the locals!

The School

Our partner school in Biarritz has more than 15 years of experience and is accredited by the French Ministry of Education. The teachers are all native speakers and are FLE university graduates (diploma of French teaching as a Foreign Language). They have significant teaching experience in France and abroad. Some of them have additional training in other sectors (foreign languages, communication, etc…).

You will study in a beautiful area not far from the city center which is easily accessible on foot (10 minutes) or with the free shuttle. The school offers a family atmosphere with a maximum capacity of 84 international students.

  • A 1905 Basque house, entirely renovated and converted into classrooms with a lovely garden, free wi-fi & student lounge
  • 10 min walk from the town centre and its beaches. A free shuttle service into town is available nearby.
  • 12 students maximum by class (8 on average)

Programme

If you are more than 16 years old, whatever your level and whatever your reason to study French, you can follow this course.

You can choose to attend 20, 26 or 30 lessons of 45 minutes per week.

Morning lessons from 9:00 AM to 12:20 PM (20-minute break included) with 12 students maximum.

Morning lessons are focus on teaching general French. With this programme, you will acquire the necessary grammar for each level, work on your written and spoken language skills and your written and oral comprehension.

You will use varied media as learning tools: graphic novels, press articles, videos, manuals and special material created by the teaching team.

Additional classes for the 26 and 30 lessons programmes:

From 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM, three afternoons per week (for the 26 lessons programme) or five afternoons per week (for the 30 lessons programme), 6 students maximum.

Afternoon lessons are focus on oral expression and listening comprehension, which help students to gain a deeper understanding of various aspects of French culture, lifestyle and civilization. These afternoon lessons encourage the student to speak up and further develop his oral skills.

 

Your first day at school: 

On the morning, you will take a written and oral french test to assess your language level and assign you to a class.

In the afternoon, a guided tour of the town will introduce you with the places of interest for a best experience.

Activities

Biarritz is the perfect destination to combine french lessons and surfing. You can rent your own board and even take lessons (see our french & surf programme).  

On the afternoon or evening, our partner school organises activities for an additional price: rafting, sea kayaking, hiking, basque pelota, visits to museums and traditional villages, cooking classes, etc…

We encourage you to join in some organised activities to have fun whilst practicing your French.

Each activity is supervised by a qualified professional.

Accommodation

Our partner school offers accommodation in a host family.

We advise you to stay with a local host family. Through living with a family, you will experience a full immersion in the country’s lifestyle and improve your french.

Our local host families are vetted and chosen rigorously by our language school partner. Most of them have been hosting for years. The location of their homes is an average 20 minutes on foot from the school.

You have the choice between full or half board.

Accommodation is from the Sunday prior to the course start date until the Saturday after the end of the course (you can book extra-night).

 

You can choose this programme without accommodation.

Note:

During the high season, students under 19 must occupy a double room.

If the minimum number of registrations for a group course is not reached, the school reserves the right to convert the group course into private lessons (half the number of lessons booked) at no extra charge.
