Private Lessons
From 17 years old 1 students per class 1 lesson — 45 minutes
Course starts every Monday and is for all language levels

These courses are most often taken by business men and women sent by their companies who do not have time to be slowed down by other students. Interaction with the teacher is very important, along with improving the student's conversational skills. It is the ‘Rolls Royce’ of teaching and the most efficient way to quickly learn a language to a high standard. This course is adapted to the individual students’ needs and motivation and is therefore ideal for those who only have a week or two to learn French.

Flexible Private Lessons.

The flexible nature of this course will interest students who are already in Nice and who wish to complement their group course with individual lessons.

New Zealand
March 2015

IH Nice is a very friendly, comfortable, and supportive environment in which to learn French.The test to assess my level at the start of the course was professional but non-threatening,and ensured I was placed in the correct class.

There is a definite feeling that the staff are here to help you.

The French classes are fun! They are very interactive and the students get plenty of opportunities to practice communicating in French – both listening and speaking.

Every day we learnt new grammar and vocabulary and increased our confidence with the language.

The staff are all very approachable and helpful. The teachers really take the time to explain things and answer questions – and they encourage us to ask any questions we may have, no matter how basic.

They are all very nice and make the classes enjoyable.
