Language study abroadVillefranche-sur-Mer Institut de Français



The Institut de Français was founded in 1969 and has built its reputation on the basis of its own learning program involving 2 or 4-week highly intensive courses. Participants generally spend from 8:30am to 5pm in the institute. French is spoken exclusively during this time. This total immersion in the French language makes maximum progress possible within a short time. The school is located on a hillside above the harbour in an elegant Provençal villa surrounded by extensive gardens. From there, there is a glorious view over the Bay of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat. Classes are held either in one of the eight classrooms, in the language lab or, weather permitting, often in the garden. Breakfast and lunch can be taken in the school’s cozy restaurant. French is spoken exclusively during meals as well. The small classes, a pronounced international atmosphere, well-trained teachers and the attractive environment allow for teaching that is both uncomplicated and serious. Good basic knowledge is the prerequisite and the emphasis is placed on oral language learning. The minimum age for participants is 21.



The Institute offers modern, comfortable, 2 and 3 room apartments in Villefranche, which are used exclusively by course participants. Every participant is assigned a single room and shares the use of a bathroom and kitchen with 1 or 2 other people. The school will organize on request accommodation in 1-bedroom studios, apartments or in a nearby hotel.




An entertainment evening is held in the institute during the first week of the course. Depending on the season, the school also organizes group excursions to Nice, Cannes or Monte Carlo. Wine tastings or group visits to museums are also on the program. The school is happy to help with planning activities and excursions.
