The aim of this course is to offer children (boys and girls) the opportunity to spend a linguistic vacation in a pleasant environment on the Riviera. At an early age, the child will get a good start in his/her life learning basic French while spending an enjoyable and enriching holiday in the same school and same town, together with their parents.

In the same locations as the classes for the adults. That enables the parents to meet their children every day during the coffee-break at 10.30 and creates a very family friendly atmosphere among adults and children.
Although the groups of max 5 kids are sufficiently separated not to disturb each others, both the children and their teachers remain within eyes contact and that too creates a homy and cosy atmosphere.
