French Courses in Nice

Enroll in EF’s French courses in Nice and experience French culture in Europe’s most glamorous beach resort city.

Study French in Nice and immerse yourself in life along the sun-drenched French Riviera. Our language school is situated among the cafes and boutiques of the city center. EF Nice is just steps from the beaches and palm tree-lined Promenade des Anglais, quite possibly the world’s most elegant boardwalk. EF Nice’s language courses place an emphasis on interaction with the locals, made easy by our central location.

The experience of our French courses is enhanced by a completely refurbished building, complete with expansive skylights so you can enjoy the Côte d’Azur’s picture perfect weather even when inside. Our classrooms are spacious and air-conditioned, and our student lounge and 2 outdoor patios provide a comfortable setting for practicing your French with fellow students. Our French courses in Nice are accredited by the prestigious EAQUALS organization and have been stamped by the Label Qualité Français Langue Etrangère, the top accreditation awarded to language schools in France.

French Elegance along the Côte d’Azur

For generations the jet set has flocked to this French Riviera resort for its palm-fringed beaches and azure blue waters. The Côte d’Azur is a beach-lovers paradise, whether you’re the type to lounge under a parasol or prefer the excitement of water sports. The beaches have always been the draw of France’s fifth largest city, but it’s more than just the pebbled shores that keeps the elite coming back year after year.

Nice’s charms extend far beyond a privileged geography. Spend a warm evening watching the yachts pull into port. Revel in the city’s Mardi Gras festival. Peruse a rainbow of locally-grown flowers in the Cours Saleya market. And enjoy a fusion of Mediterranean and French cuisines at a bistro in the old part of town. Most visitors are only lucky enough to stay here for a few days; students in our French courses get to call Nice home.

Nice’s Group Travel

Our escorted group travel option combines language learning with resort-style comfort and leisure. Grab a crepe and enjoy a stroll along the pebbled beaches of Nice. Take weekend trips to Monaco and St.Tropez, all while getting the necessary tools for your university studies and career path.

Student life in Nice

Nice just might be the Mediterranean’s most sophisticated city. Culture-hounds, gourmands, sun-seekers and art-lovers can all easily get their fix in the capital of the Cote d’Azur. EF’s activities coordinators are onsite to introduce you to everything Nice has to offer, starting, of course, with its crystal blue coastline.

Sightseeing & CultureShoppingSports & OutdoorsExcursionsEntertainment & Nightlife
Watch yachts pull into port as you stroll down the Promenade des Anglais, the world’s most elegant boardwalk. Meander through the maze of streets in Vieux Nice, stopping at the vibrant colors of the daily Cours Saleya flower and fruit market. People-watch and soak up sun from the comfort of a beach chair on the Plage Publique des Ponchettes. Sample fresh seafood at a sidewalk café on Place Rossetti. Browse the galleries of the dozens of museums and head to the hillside Parc du Chateau for spectacular views of the Cote d’Azur.
Avenue Jean Medecin is the principal shopping street in Nice and is lined by the storefronts of chic boutiques and brand-name shops. Here you’ll find the Galleries Lafayette, the iconic department store specializing in high-end French brands.
Swim in the azure blue seas just a short walk from EF’s classrooms. Join friends for beach volleyball matches on the main beach or take in the coastal views while parasailing behind a jet boat. Try scuba diving around the fish-filled shores or strap on a pair of rollerblades and glide down the Promenade des Anglais.
On the weekends, go beyond city limits to discover the beautiful Cote d’Azur cities of Cannes Antibes, St. Tropez and Ventimiglia. Glimpse royalty on a trip to Monaco and get a taste for cosmopolitan living in the international capitals of Paris and Barcelona.
Nice has the French Riviera’s finest nightlife. Evenings usually begin by sipping crisp white wine at a Vieux Nice café before heading to a flashy live performance at the Cabaret du Casino Ruhl. Boisterous bars can be found in the city’s old quarter while glitzy nightclubs are common along the waterfront.
