Study French at the EF Centre Internationale de Français and have the opportunity to explore some of France’s highlights—the French Riviera, Louvre Museum, and the Eiffel Tower. Take classes at EF Nice, which was awarded the FLE quality label by the French Ministry of Higher Education for high standards of teaching. EF Paris is the only EF school to teach French cooking classes in a high-tech kitchen. EF Saint Raphaël is a 10-minute walk from the beach, which means you’ll learn French while soaking in the French Riviera’s warm weather.

EF offers French courses for all levels, from beginner to advanced, for adults and students aged 16 and above. Courses start every Monday and you can stay as long as you’d like, from two weeks up to a whole academic year. U.S. students can receive college credit for courses lasting 4 weeks and longer. EF Nice offers summer programs for younger students aged 13-15.

Personalize your program by choosing the intensity of your French course and adding special interest classes like conversation classes, French cinema, or art history. At EF, you can also prepare for the official DELF/DALF French exams, or combine your studies with a professional internship to practice your French in a work environment.

You can choose to stay with a French host family or stay in one of EF’s student residences, alongside students from all over the world.

EF’s full-time activities staff arrange sports, cultural events, parties and weekend trips along the Côte d’Azur and the rest of France, so you can get to know the country and the culture like a native. Live the language with EF!
