"When I arrived in France, I knew nothing of the language. Now, I can read and I have learnt to speak French without difficulty. Thanks to CIA. I seriously recommend the Centre International d'Antibes to anyone who wants to learn French. The mixt of nationalities and ages is perfect."

"The school is near the town centre in a quiet area conducive to study. The classrooms are attractive and some have a magnificent sea-view. The teachers are still the best part of the school, though : Those I studied under were talented teachers who knew how to make the subject interesting despite the difficulty of the language. Students were divided into groups by level, so everyone felt at ease in speaking, even if they made mistakes.
Thanks to C.I.A I have learnt to speak French properly"

"I have just returned from my two weeks in Antibes, I stayed at The Aragon Residence.
I would like to say thank you very much.
From the time I was collected from the Airport to the time I was brought back.
Everyone was so helpful, the staff at Aragon, and the room was spotless.
The Teachers, the Guides , the Restaurant staff, everyone involved.
I never expected it to be so good. As well as learning I feel I had a holiday.
The teachers were so helpful. I will be able to use what I have learned and go a little further.
Perhaps next year I will return.
Once again thank you for everything.
"J'ai passé une merveilleuse semaine au Centre International d'Antibes."
"Nice! Nei djók Antibes!"
"I just returned from spending three lovely weeks at the school in Antibes. I have to say it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Each morning I would skip the bus they provide and walk to the school in the beautiful weather of the South of France. My instructor, Allison, was always happy and just a bundle of energy. She immediately made me very comfortable and the environment there at the school, their residence, and Antibes in general makes you feel right at home. Each day after class I would jump on a train to Cannes, or Villefranche-sur-Mer, or Monaco, or some other charming town which was utterly delightful. As for speaking French, when I arrived I had difficulty talking to driver who had picked me up from the airport that first day. After three weeks that same driver had picked me up again to bring me back to the airport and he and I were able to have an actual conversation about Spain and the restaurants there. It was a breakthrough for me in learning to speak and understand French. Being forced to hear and talk nothing but French trains the ear in a way you simply cannot achieve in your native country. For anyone thinking of attending this school I highly recommend it. I hope to return sometime in the future to continue to work on my French and explore further the Cote d'Azure. It was a wonderful experience. "
