The location of the school in the city center is convenient, but the classrooms are NOT air-conditioned. The castle facility is 10min uphill from the Place de Gaulle. The classrooms are air-conditioned and there is a canteen with a nice terrace (6e main dish, 1e coffee, 2.5e salad...). We have rented an apartment in Juan-les-pins (near Jardin Pauline) and it was convenient to get to the Place de Gaulle by bus line 1 (only 3-5min one way, 10e weekly ticket).
The morning groups are 12 people, and the afternoon classes are up to 6 people. The lessons are mostly focused on conversation (level A1). We improved substantially our communication skills, however the lessons were a little bit too slow. Probably the reason is that the groups are very mixed and there were some people who struggled with pronunciation and basic grammar. The french grammar is not that hard honestly, especially for people who speak Slavic languages or those who had exposure to Italian or Spanish. In two weeks (2 x 25 lessons, one lesson is 45min) we covered about half of A1 that is fine, but not something exceptional. Loic and Giussy are great teachers. We enjoyed lessons with them.
The school does not follow any book in particular (I personally like Edito very much). They have their own program and distribute copies in the class.
The location was easy to get to by train and also by car. The “chateau” where classes were held had a lovely outdoor terrace. Classrooms were basic but fine. We only had around 6 people in the class so it was a great little intimate class. 12 people would have been a lot in one class. Our teacher was absolutely fantastic, we had a lot of laughs at the same time as learning heaps and it was great that a lot of the class involved speaking and listening. The people in my class and others I started with in different classes were really interesting and a lot of fun in and out of class. After the tests we were placed in classes but the school was very flexible in allowing people to change if the class was too easy or too hard.Mostrar detalhes » Ler mais...
First of all, I was amazed at the professionalism and organization displayed from the beginning by all the staff from the correspondences by email all the way to the First Class. I was surprised by the excursion organized on my first day of Beginners' Class, and the vibes we got during the short tour from Place de Gaulle to the Port Vauban, having spent some time in the Antibes and having some questions from seeing all the places I had been to in the past weeks, was like money well spent on the Course for the week.
I was again surprised at the venue I was assigned to for my class...the location was perfect and also were the teachers. My small group was perfect for my level and we all were carried along. I have 4 more weeks of lessons from end of November to the week of December 21st.
I am looking forward to this experience and I know for sure that I will recommend this experience to friends, families and others who may want to know how come I speak the French Language so well.
Thank you for an awesome experience of learning. In my opinion, this is what real immersion should look like. I would like to know if you have a similar centre in Paris?
When I arrived I already had a nice level of French, so I didn’t need much but it definitely helped reaching my goal and passing the C1 exam.
Private lessons with Olivier have been really interesting and helpful. I will raccomend it!
Dear Rebecca, thank you for rating our school. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your private lessons with Olivier and that you managed to pass the C1 exam. We looking forward to seeing you back for some more courses. CIA Antibes team.
The school, while a 20 minute walk in the searing heat away from the residence, was well climatized, clean, had a good restaurant with a nice cook and clean toilets. The cook was especially nice, because he payed attention to my gluten deficiency and always informed me which food I could eat and which not. He even bought me dietary bread once.
The coffee machine made shitty coffee, though and the other machines were broken for a week and a half.
The teachers had very different styles, but were all good humoured and helped me improve my french in various areas.
Other students were the bast part of the experience though and a significant factor in the betterment of my oral production. Everyone was fairly nice, the staff too, it's a great thing the interns are all around the students' age, I'm sure it makes their time there better as well - although as with all interns, I think they deserve a higher pay. I mean they have to deal with my stupidity and that of a pack of teenagers running about as well. Not an easy job.
The teenagers being in the Castel Arabel was a bit obnoxious, they really had a low regard for their fellow residents' comfort, if you go by the trash they left about and the noise they made, although half of that was just their music taste not being very close to mine. It was a lot more pleasant after they had left.
Then again, some of the other people in the Castel, as great as they all were as company in the evenings and afternoons, didn't seem to be the best kitchen mates. One of the two giant sinks in the communal kitchen was always either clogged or full of dirty dishes or both. It also kind of pissed me off that I didn't get a fridge and therefore could only use the kitchen if I had a way to plan my meals perfectly, so there'd be no leftovers or if I found a person with a fridge with a kind enough heart to let me use theirs.
The room was fine, although it was the smallest of the three that were on our side of the second floor - perversely the biggest of which was always occupied by a single person, while our tiny one in the middle (17) was a two-man room. But the terrace was great, had lots of good times there and it served well as a place to dry our clothes. It also saved my and my roommates lives when the a/c died on us after a week. It never got fixed during our stay...
The Côte d'Azur is pretty enough, with olenty of stuff to visit and see, be it museums, some nature, some cities, some ancient ruins or some overpriced clubs - it really is a shame though that so many of the beaches are quasi-private thorugh legal loopholes.
All in all the bad parts couldn't drag down the atmosphere and experience of learning and drunk comradery with the other students and interns and young employees staying at the residence.
I loved it. Just get more reliable mechanics to fix the a/c, I probably spent twice as much on the laundry machine because of aöl the sweat.
Dear Oliver, thank you for taking your time to rate your stay with us in Antibes in such a detailed way. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our school and our cook he would be glad to hear you enjoyed his gluten free options. We are happy to report that coffee machines are working now. We are proud of proposing an internship program, all our interns have free housing and courses aside their paycheck but is indeed a challenging job. Castel Arabel welcomes Adult and Junior students alike, sometimes we do have noisier groups, but we try our best to keep them from disturbing the rest of the residents. We are improving the state of our communal kitchen but having said that, the cleanliness has a lot to do with the fellow students that use the space. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall in the beautiful French riviera and we will be delighted to welcome you back in our school for more fun. CIA Antibes team.
I had a good experience studing French in France. I liked Professor Mireille, the students of different ages, from different countries, a good atmosphere in class.
Accomodation in the LAMBERT Michèle apartment near the "Le Château" school, the "Le Port" school in the town center near the beach but no Wi-Fi.
I am very satisfied with the work of the The team of the INTERNATIONAL CENTER OF ANTIBES, also well organized transfers to the airport.
A big thank you to Michèle LAMBERT for hospitality and the teacher Mireille for patience and character.
Dear Ekaterina, thank you for choosing CIA for your educational trip. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with Mrs. Lambert and the courses with Mireille. We will be glad to welcoming you in the near future. CIA Antibes team.
We had classes with Mirelle in the morning with a total of 4 students. She was excellent and very enthusiastic and made learning fun. She concentrated on the verbs and I feel she was focused on giving us the best out of the week we were there. In the afternoon we had Fredericke who was also very engaging and charming, we were only 2 pupils and felt privileged to have such intense lesson. The location was lovely and convenient to go around the town. The lunch break was, maybe too long but that's just part of the French lifestyle.Mostrar detalhes » Ler mais...
Dear Michael, thank you for taking the time to review our school. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your courses with Mirelle and Fredericke they are both stars amongst our teaching staff. We are looking forward to seeing you again. CIA Antibes team.
For three weeks, I attended morning sessions with 10 - 12 students and afternoon sessions with 4 - 6 students. The morning session during the first week was awful. The teacher, Francois, just babbled on and on and did not teach anything. The students who were in his class during the previous week(s) were fed up and were looking forward to the end of the session. Fortunately for me, he was not at the school after that week (I do not know why) which meant I had a different teacher for the next two weeks - Amine. He was a fantastic teacher! In the afternoon, for two weeks, I had Jean-Luc who was also a good teacher. The third week I had a new teacher who I was unimpressed with on the first day (he was not able to work the technology which he had planned to use and therefore also just babbled for two hours). On the second day there was a substitute who flat out told me she did not understand me and I felt dismissed. I am 61 years old and my brain is not as facile as it used to be... so learning French is slow for me. I had gained a lot of confidence during the first two weeks, which was just shattered with this very uninspiring teacher (Lela, I think). I walked out of the class and went to the head of the school and they handled the situation very well, I think, by providing me with two private sessions to replace the remainder of the afternoon sessions during my final week of the school.
The setting for both schools was very nice (it would have been helpful to know that a student might switch from one location to another, which I did not know). Luckily the apartment I had rented in the old village of Antibes was convenient to both. I was at the Chateau for two weeks and the harbor for the third. The classrooms were very hot (in September) in both schools. It was difficult to have the windows open at the harbor due to the noise outside. I was also surprised at the lack of the use of technology that is now available. The negative thing about the Chateau was that it was full of young kids, who were unsupervised when they were outside of the classroom and noisy. That, in addition to not having a non-smoking designated area outside meant there was really no place for older, non-smokers to go during the breaks and the two+ hours between the morning and afternoon sessions.
I did not use the housing offered by the school, nor take part in any extracurricular activities.
Overall, my experience was very positive. Since I spend 4 - 5 months a year in the area near Antibes (Golfe Juan), I plan on returning to the school in the future and can only hope that I have Amine as my teacher once again.
Dear Julie, Thank you for taking the time to make such an elaborate comment about our school. Our teachers are all committed to deliver the best possible experience to our students, having said that sometimes there are differences between styles and personalities. If that is the case with one teacher, we can always come up with an alternative to make your courses enjoyable. We are happy to hear that you gained in confidence. We are pleased to hear that you appreciated both of our schools, we do have air conditioning in all our classrooms now. The château is proud to welcome both Junior and adult students depending on the season we have either a campus available for younger students. The school is located 10 minutes away from the old town so there is plenty of time to go for a stroll and come back for your afternoon classes. We will be happy to welcome you back in our school at any time. CIA Antibes team.
During OFF-Season it's worth doing a class of French in Antibes because nothing can distract you.
The classes were small - up to 10 people - and important to mention age-wise mixed! I, being 31, didn't feel too old.
School was demanding but in the end: how much effort you put into learning is up to you.
Dear Yvonne, thank you so much for your nice review of our school. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the courses and also Antibes in the winter. We hope to see you back soon!
I really liked the classes and the teachers; they were just amazing.
Chateau was nice as it had a lot of space, but it wasn't in a good location. There were no restaurants near, and the restaurant in the school should be open to all the students, not only juniors, since it's extra pay. The rest were fine.
I didn't participate in the activities.
With regard to the accommodation, the property was nice but the rooms were not good. In my room, the sink was leaking, and there were no towels to put on the floor. They lacked materials to clean the room, with only one machine to do the laundry, and the coffee machine was not working. It also said that the residence was 10 minutes away by walking but it took 20 minutes at the least. Also, people don't respect the rule about noise after 10PM. Internet doesn't work in the whole property.
Dear Yara, thank you so very much for your message and for taking the time to review our school. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the courses. The restaurant at the school is actually open to all students. We are happy to announce that our residence was renewed in late 2017 so the technical difficulties are in the past. We will look forward to welcoming you once more.

1. We can make exceptions for 17 year old students and accept them on the adult program if the parents sign a parental discharge.
2. The two students who are placed at Horticole and Leonardo da Vinci are junior students and those are the names of our junior campuses in Antibes. We do still have availabilities on our campuses this summer depending on the dates.
We only place the students once we have the complete enrollment information.
