\ Many increases from competing language schools are totally unjustified …and completed in a hurry, by alarmed and worried schools / institutions lacking imagination in their poor management.

We don’t do that !… We know how to adapt and offer the same hight efficiency in running our French language schools in France at summer vacations and holidays , with cosy and affordable intensive daily courses from Monday to Friday.

More and more dull and boring language schools tend to offer online courses… it’s a lazy and tiresome way to teach ..While one-to-one online courses have some advantages, they’re not for everyone , specially not in summertime .. There are potential downsides include uneven value for the cost, uneven quality of instruction you can’t check. ... Limits on close collaboration and no extracurricular contact with fellow students. Poor suitability for students who need extra help or thrive in small-group settings.

Weigh these drawbacks carefully before signing up for an online course, either as individual or as family

"Dear Edmond,

My 7 year old daughter and I attended the French Language Holiday School in Saint Raphael, France in the summer .Me with the adult groups and my daughter among the young children. We enjoyed it so much. It was very friendly and informal but at the same time I was impressed with the standard of the teachers which was very high. The classes were very relaxed in the garden but also very professional. My daughter loved the course and wants to return next summer. Saint Raphael is a great place for families with the beach and all the attractions, such as the Ferris wheel, carousal and market along the beach. Thank you to all for an enjoyable experience.”

Colleen Fitzpatrick Westport, Co Mayo, Ireland

Bonjour Edmond,

For the third time my kids and Grandmother have spend 3 weeks at the French summer course in Saint Raphael
My kids love it, they have learned a lot , this week back at school the teacher have said: vous avez appris beaucoup cet été !!!
Votre français est très bon!!
It is fantastic, French classes at the garden , in this typical Cote d’Azur house! Afternoon, at the beach…
We have been back, and back, so it means that the school is a great place!!!
All the Best for Edmond and his team”

"Hello Our Dear Edmond,

Our Europe adventure has come to an end and we are back in Costa Rica safe in our home. I can’t express how much we enjoyed our time in Saint Raphael, and especially meeting you. We remember with great fondness our time at the school, meeting your staff and the other families as well. The lunch together at the restaurant was paramount for extra practice at conversation. Even though my two children and I were true beginners at the beginning of our two week period at your language school, we feel as though we can now survive in an immersion experience; with basic vocabulary and verbs. I only wish we could have stayed a third week; and possibly fourth as I feel I could have really advanced in my conversational skills even more.
We would LOVE to serve as a reference for other families as we hope to return soon... if not in 2019, then in 2020. It was such a wonderful experience!!! Thank YOU!!!!
Hugs from the green mountain (Monteverde).”

"My daughter Anastasia, 13 years old, was trained in France Langue & Culture for 4 weeks, this summer 2016

I'm pleased with the result of training.
Major achievement during her training was to overcome the language barrier. She much has filled up her vocabulary. Since communication in the school took place in both French and English languages, she raised her level of both languages.
Now she is not experiencing difficulties in the French special school in Moscow, where she study from this year
I recommend in France Langue & Culture you will receive a guaranteed result.

Marina Kodyleva, Moskva, Russia

"Two of my daughters, Alice & Isabelle, and one of their friends attended the French language course at St. Raphael this year.

Just as in their previous year's visit, the teaching sessions were fun, engaging and very worthwhile. Learners engage fully in French with teachers and with each other, and have the opportunity to explore St. Raphael independently, putting their skills to the test. My girls returned full of joie de vivre and with significantly improved French language skills! I can, of course, expand on that if anybody phones! Cordialement”

"Here my testimonial from Colorado:

We spent three weeks in Saint-Raphaël in July 2015 and we had a wonderful time. The teachers were very knowledgeable and supportive, and we enjoyed getting to know others from different countries.
Saint-Raphaël is a very family friendly town, and a great place to engage in a french language learning experience!
Je serais heureux d'être une référence pour le programme et j'espère que nous retournerons l'été prochain.”
