"1 week is not long enough"

Gabrielle Barfield, student from Australia

I enrolled in a 1 week course, being an almost beginner in French language.

I was in a class with 4 other students who I thought were a bit ahead of me.

The whole lesson was conducted in French (understandably) but the problem for me was that I couldn't understand the instructions of what to do in the exercises, until I felt I should ask in English. The teacher was happy to explain then. The lessons were good, we had a variety of grammar, making short conversations and reading aloud. I felt I did improve slightly in the week, however a 4 week stint would have been a lot better, to have that continuity.

The location was excellent as it was walking distance from the centre of beautiful Nice.

There were some social activities planned, which I would have liked to partake in but it didn't seem that they went ahead as no-one else was interested.

"What a wonderful school, in a wonderful place!"

Felicia Jone, student from USA

I haven't studied French in years and I was a nervous student. I am so glad that I chose International House Nice- the location is, of course, heavenly and the teachers are great. I felt challenged in class and am glad that I took the intensive course.
Every week or so, we had a new teacher- this was very helpful because they all had unique teaching techniques. When I didn't understand very well in the morning session, the afternoon session often clarified things. It is exactly what I needed.

I am one of older students, but I had a great time with my classmates and have made friends- we spend time after school, practicing our French and exploring the city and the region.

I can't wait to come back next year!

"Very useful "kick-start" for a beginner in french"

Thomas Sutton, student from Italy

I attended morning and afternoon lessons (4,5 hrs/day) at International House Nice in August 2019. Mornings were group lessons with quite large groups (7-10 people) while afternoons were smaller groups (3-5 people) plus two days/week of individual lessons. I started in the absolute beginners group, but upgraded to the A1 group in my second week and the A2 group in the third.

The quality of the teachers was uniformly high. Afternoon sessions were particularly useful as the smaller group/individual lessons enable a much faster and tailored progress. Larger group sessions vary a lot depending on the engagement level of your classmates, since a lot depends on the peer-to-peer interactions with them.

The classrooms were comfortable, and in an excellent location, 10 minutes walk from the old town, the railway station, or the beach.

"Great range of activities BUT NO LESSONS"

Sohraab Khattak, student from UK

Fab range of activities and I could leave my son there for the 2 hour lunch break if I wanted to (I never did but was nice to know I could). Snacks were provided and the sessions seemed fun. Close to parks etc so lunch breaks were super fun. Staff lovely.

My only issue was I paid for my son to have French lessons and he didn’t have any lessons. Essentially it was a Summer holiday childcare facility. I would have preferred they were honest with that as there are cheaper places to do that.

"A good experience"

Emil-Jivan Duquette, student from UK

The teachers appeared to me of very good quality. The main problem is that son, who is English speaking, made friends with other English-speaking friends from the first day. It was difficult for teachers, I heard, to have them practice French. Overall, this was a wonderful way for my son to enjoy his time in Nice, but not the best way to learn French.

I would prefer a more academic approach in the future. Unfortunately, I was told by Language International that there would be French lessons in the morning and activities in the afternoon. The truth is that there were only activities and no French lessons.

"Friendly environment & interesting lessons"

Dimitra Gatidou, student from Greece

For me it was a very nice experience, since it was the first time to get involved in this kind of lessons.

The location was very easy to be found and it is close to one of the most famous streets of Nice-rue Massena-.

Our teacher was very friendly and was willing to explain everything in detail in order to be sure we actually understand.

All the other persons that were in my classroom where on the same level as mine, so that made me feel more relaxed.

We were only encouraged to speak-or try to speak- in French, although I am definetly not fluent in talking, but that helped me a lot!! After the lessons I was feeling more confident about speaking in French.

I definetely recommend it and I will sure do it again in the future, but for more than one week, because one week is a short period to improve youself in French..

Thank you

"Very educational because the teachers are great and the structure of the lessons are very well planned."

Marcus Skordby, student from Sweden

The teachers are very engaging and friendly. They are easy to talk to and they want to teach as much as possible. I think it is great that ONLY french is spoken during class. That is why my French vocabulary and pronunciation has improved significantly. The location is good because it is practical and nice. It is close to the beach, several bus stops and in a beautiful location in the city of Nice. The facilities are fresh and clean.

"I had an amazing time!"

Juliette Jorgenson, student from USA

Loved the teachers and classes but I wish we had a more in-depth review of our level, because I felt that I didn't learn as much new vocabulary and grammar as I had hoped. It was more of a review rather than learning new material.. The location was perfect and I loved the school. I made lots of new friends from all over the world. The housing was good, although there were some negative issues, such as that the host did not provide breakfast, and she smoked everywhere in the house including the kitchen. I enjoyed having a roommate.

"Interesting"

Morten Lund, student from Denmark

Class little and good

Teacher with professional and pedagogical qualifications

Clever young people in the class

Good atmosphere in the lessons

I did not like the old fashioned teaching with a lot of grammar, too little discussion and communication.

The lessons followed a determined schedule, not adapted to this class of five

"The teacher is very good and easy going with smiling and laughing"

Lene Koogi, student from Denmark

The School does the work very old. The audio and video were old school. Also the exercices on print are old school where the woman took care about the House and the man had a job.

The facilitees were ok, execept the aircon which did not work ok.

The Teacher, Fanny was execellent.

My french has got a great boost.

"Amazing"

Felix GIESINGER, student from Austria

The teachers were very friendly and also taught us very good because the lessons were very thrilling and good structured. What I also aprecciates was my host family ("hostmother)" because she cooked very well and was very friendly. Another point which I really liked, was the location because it was in the centre of Nice which means you were very close to the sea.

"A great one week refresher in French!"

Meagan Crotty, student from Canada

I completed one week at International House:Nice and it was a great way to refresh my french language skills. The teacher was great, the course was interactive and the environment was very comfortable and welcoming. I had been out of practice in french for several years and felt a big improvement in my comprehension and confidence through the week. I would definitely return to continue advancing my french.

"It was super great and very interesting"

Beatrice Stierli, student from Switzerland

We were six students from five different countries in our class during the first week, this resulted in very interesting discussions and a great experience exchange. The teacher conducted the discussions very well and gave us enough time to speak.

In the second week, we were unfortunately, eleven students in the class whereas in other classes there were only two to four students. An unfortunate division.

The school material is unfortunately a bit outdated and badly copied sheets from books were distributed.

"Great and meaningful experience."

Kristoffer Holtermann, student from Denmark

I enjoyed the classes, teachers, and the social events as well. The school was brilliantly located, just five minutes from the beach. However, I do wish we had more interactive learning i.e. French movies/games/outdoor study trips etc.

On the other hand, the housing which the school offered, was very poor. As a result, I had to switch to another accomodation by myself.

"I really enjoyed my study at the International House: Nice"

Anton Sorokin, student from Russia

The school was a great experience for me. Our teacher was very nice and did her best in establishing very friendly and effective communication between students from different countries/cultures, making the study not only useful but also quite exciting.

The school located in a walking distance from city center, not far from the main train station.

There were some activities organized by the school staff, but I didn't participate in any (due to lack of time - I had only a week in Nice) so nothing to say here.

The housing was also very nice: I lived with a French family and had a lot of opportunities to improve my language as well as to better understand other cultures.

"Perfect"

Nic Mimmack

It was a great experience. Laetitia was an excellent teacher and I could see my French improve a lot over the course of the week. The staff in the office was always happy to help. The accommodation (Lamy) was quite basic, but was fine for its purpose. I would have probably stayed with a host family in hindsight so as to have more opportunities to improve my French. Nice, itself, is beautiful, and there's every chance that I'll return to the city and the school.

"It was very nice."

Elena Chachkarova

Although I stayed just for a week, I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the school. It was well situated right in the center of Nice, the teacher was nice and the classes were very useful. I think I definitely improved my language skills. The only thing that disappointed me was that the classes were in the afternoon and I could not enjoy Nice that much. Overall, it was amazing.

"Good and bad"

Farah AlRefaei, student from Kuwait

The class was great. I was a student in Jean Christoph's class. He's an amazing teacher and he works hard to make the students understand him, but he was moving slow, wasting time, and slacking. The class was supposed to be 3 hours, but we studied from 9:00a.m.-10:30 a.m. Our break started after this, and didn't end until 11:00 a.m. or 11:15 a.m., and I calculate that into the things he did while in class (lack of work papers and him going out to copy more, etc.), but overall he's great. He just needs to work on punctuality. My afternoon private lessons were amazing. The location of the school was perfect. A vending machine swallowed my money 3 times and I didn't get it back. The staff and crew were very friendly and welcoming, especially Emma and William (the head manager).

About the activities with the school: I only paid one time to go to some city that was close, and when I showed up, I couldn't find anyone. I was 25 minutes early though, and I didn't get a refund.

At my housing, Rose was very friendly and kind. She's super clean and organized, which I loved. Breakfast was great, but dinner was not so much. The other day, I had salad for dinner - a salad! Usually it was more than a salad. The location of the apartment was somewhat good. It was an 8-minute walk to the school and there was a supermarket called "Lidel" that was very close - probably a 3-minute walk.

I liked the whole experience, but I noticed that the school was really expensive compared to other schools. The books we used weren't that useful.

Thanks for everything. :-)

"Helpful and kind"

Hans Erik Blicher Dalgaard, student from Denmark

I came to Nice and got picked up by my host family. Already there you can see that the host families take their job seriously, and I think it is very good to have families you can trust. Unfortunately, when I came to my family and the school I got anxiety. I told my family and the school that I had this problem and they did all that they could to help me. So when you talk about the people and teachers at the school you can see that they are good people and good teachers. The location of the school was fine. My families were both close to the school, but I think it was a bit confusing that there were two school locations.
The activities was very good. They did a very good job finding activities that were interesting and fun for our age.
The facilities were fine and the classrooms were not very hot even though it was very hot outside. When it came to pens or books I thought that the school would give us a book or a pen, but it was no problem.
So all in all it is a very good place to be.

"An effective week in Nice"

Olli Saarinen, student from Finland

Really friendly and helpful staff. Teacher was very good, but didn't speak English very well. On the other hand it was better because we had to use French even with more difficult questions. I had to change location every day at 12 o'clock but the distance wasn't bad. Activities were nice. I booked a hotel by myself so I didn't have housing.

"Relaxed class, yet good learning experience."

Matias Fernando Pascual Grinjot, student from USA

The class was very small (5 students), and students were at very different levels, although they were all in the same room. This was a bit distracting. The professor was not very rigorous, so sometimes it seemed like we were moving on very very slowly.

"Great!"

Paige Collins, student from USA

I enrolled in the school for two weeks of class. I have taken French with a tutor 1 time a week for the last two years and really wanted to advance. I really liked my teacher and found that most of the lessons for me were review, exactly what I needed! I felt that my class placement was perfect; challenging but not over my head. To be in the class environment with students basically at the same level, I felt comfortable with speaking up and asking questions. The most difficult aspect of learning the language was listening to the CD's and discussing the conversations. With my tutor at home, she speaks very slowly and knows exactly what vocabulary I know so this was much more difficult. My only complaint (or really just an annoyance) was that our teacher several times a day asked us to work with a partner on conversation skills. The first day of class, I was paired with the young girl next to me so we were then partners for every exercise, every day. The problem was that many times during the class, she was on her computer, on her facebook page, and not paying attention to the teacher or the class so when it came time for the exercise, she was lost and I became very frustrated. I would have preferred to work on my own in that case. The class had students from all over the world and a wide age range. I enjoyed that.

I did attend one outside the classroom activity which was dinner with other students at a restaurant in Vieux Ville. We were all confused on what to order and how the bill would be handled at the end. I think it would have been more enjoyable if the representative from the school was more in control of the evening and had made some pre-selections ahead of time.

"Excellent experience"

Heidi Hagerott, student from USA

Facilities were excellent, right in the heart of Nice. The teacher was an excellent native French speaker who was very supportive and encouraged us to push our limits. I would have liked to stay for longer!

"A well-organized, beneficial learning experience, both academically and socially."

Alexandra Lannan, student from Canada

I had a fantastic experience in Nice. I found my teachers to be extremely effective, as the learning experience was based on verbal skills, not so much written, which we have learned in school. The location was beautiful, as it is on the water and close to different cities. This gave me the opportunity to travel around and see parts of the country that I would not typically have the chance to, being from Canada. The school provided opportunities to go on day-trips to visit different local areas. I enjoyed my stay in Nice and my housing, although, I wish we were aware of housing closer to the school. I lived a 30 minute walk from school and felt uncomfortable walking at night. The woman who worked at the front desk at my apartment building was rude and did not give me money back when my apartment was in the same shape as when I first arrived.

"Rewarding but too informal"

Leopoldo Villela

The school is well located, the teachers are very good and helpful, the administration puts too much pressure in teachers to tolerate students, unfortunately there were some young students that were rude and teachers tolerated their rudeness (sleeping in the class). Sometimes they took too long breaks, which made the class shorter. I liked the house where I was placed, close to the school but the owner did not want anyone in the kitchen doing anything. Food was not very exciting. The owner was too demanding but firm. By the end of my 8th week she was more understanding and caring. Good person! I rate the experience as excellent. I learned a great deal and love France, especially Nice and the cities around.

"I liked that there was a lot of speaking"

Kai Routila, student from Finland

The teachers were good. I liked that they explained in a manner that was easy to understand. The material that was handed was good, and I learned a lot of new vocabulary. The location of the school was excellent. There were hotels within a reasonable price range just close by. I liked very much that classes were in the afternoon.

"A Great Experience"

vanessa maneschy, student from Brazil

I stayed in Nice for two weeks for a French course with my 10 year old daughter.

Our courses were in separate buildings, making us wake up at least 40 min earlier in order to get to class on time. The classrooms are very nice, but do not have air conditioners, so eventually it got hot considering it was summer. My classes were great, the teacher Anne was also very nice and was a great teacher. As for my daughter, I believe the course was too advanced for her age, since she was the youngest in the group of teenagers.

The overall view is great. I loved the experience and would take the course in Nice again!

"Fun people, great teachers, bad administration"

Adriana Revuelta, student from Mexico

Classes were very good in general, I had two teachers that were really good and you could tell they love teaching, Anne and Jean Cristhophe (sorry if I'm misspelling the names). One recommendation would be to improve the system the school has in place to choose the level of the students and to measure improvements in order to change classes. At first, my classes were in the right level (both exercises and class mates), but then when new students arrived after a few weeks, they were located in the same class with zero French knowledge and that made my classes go backwards instead of forward. Teacher didn't notice or notice but just didn't do anything about it so I requested a change of class to a more advance one and got a lot better after that.

The locations were good, I had some minor issues with the school downtown (Jean Medecin) behind felling the heat of the summer during class and no one answering the interphone to open the main gate to enter the building. There was a specific issue with the location in Carabacel when the class rooms were not available because of a problem with the university that was leasing the floor, the director was not helpful, and was actually rude; but the teachers were amazing handling the issue and giving great classes what so ever.

Activities were always great especially with Leslie, the woman that managed the activities outside the school, she was nice, helpful and always made the trips and the gatherings more fun and interesting.

Housing complied with what was required, nothing great but just met the basic expectations of a student dorm, hot water, internet available 24x7, access to main streets, not a lot of noise (except coming from the street, two times with people yelling and threatening each other about calling the police)

In general I would say I was a great experience and I would recommend the school for classes lasting a short period of time during holidays for example, but I would not do so for people wanting 6 months or longer stays.

"Enjoyable and useful"

April Ruthen-Gough, student from UK

I really enjoyed the discussions in Mme Fevrier's classes. I met many interesting people from different countries and learned many practical phrases for conversational French as well as improved on my grammar. The location was very convenient and I stayed in a hotel instead of with a local family. I would like to have stayed longer.
