Activities

We encourage our students to join in some organised activities to have fun whilst practicing their French.

You have the choice between 4 sessions of 1.5 hours per week of surfing or a multi-activities pack (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon).

The beaches used for the surf lessons offer a variety of high-quality beach breakers and waves more suitable to beginners. All the surf instructors hold a diploma from the “Federation de Surf” to prove their competence to teach surfing. All the wet-suits and boards are provided by the surf school.

Multi-activities pack: According to the season and week, our partner school designs activities programme such as hiking, rafting, rock climbing, paddle boarding, kayaking, oceanographic museum, etc.

On Saturday, you will be able to take part in a full-day excursion (Bayonne, Saint-Jean de Luz, Saint-Jean Pied de Port, etc.).

Before or after the activities, social activities as beach volleyball or quizzes are organised for students to make friends and practice their french.

Each activity is supervised by a qualified professional.

Accommodation

You will stay with a local host family, in a twin room. Through living with a family, you will be fully immersed in the country’s lifestyle and culture.

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 not further than 20 minutes on foot or by bus from the school. You will be shown to your school on the first morning.

Your accommodation is full board. You will have breakfast and dinner with your host family as well as lunch on the weekends and a picnic lunch during the weekdays (special diets are cathered for).

Students who are minors (under 18) are required to have a signed parental permission form if they wish to go out in the evenings. Parents must indicate a curfew time. 

Note that our partner school offers a 24/7 support.

Travel

Tips for your trip from Ireland:

Our prices do not include transport from Ireland. Once you have received your confirmation of your stay, you will be able to purchase your ticket and provide us with your travel information.

Direct flights to Biarritz from Dublin run on Saturdays – so students on this course usually fly the day before the course begins, which incurs an extra night stay supplement fee of €40.
