As soon as you arrive, you will be given a free guide book that tells you all about Nice and its surroundings. From then on, you can take part in all sorts of cultural and leisure activities: one evening, one afternoon and at weekends, you can watch a French film. There are theme evenings at the school, beach parties, bowling, disco, hiking, rafting, conferences, guided museum visits, excursions accompanied by a teacher, or you can just take part in the multitude of events taking place on the Riviera. These programmes are optional and free of charge, except for museum entry and transport.
Sailing (July - August). Every afternoon, from 2pm onwards, from Monday to Friday and for two weeks, you will be taught how to sail. (10 sessions of around 3 hours each). You will learn on a catamaran, with monitors that are certified by the French Sailing Federation. After a few theory sessions, you will soon be out on one of the most stunning seas in the world: the Mediterranean. The team supervising the students is made up of monitors who have experience in teaching people from all different horizons. As much as possible, the sessions will be carried out in French.
Diving (June – September). The same timetable as for the sailing lessons. Every session is preceded by a briefing and a theoretical approach to the dive that will follow. You will be taken by boat to the dive, supervised by monitors certified by the F.F.E.S.M.. 8 lessons are devoted to teaching and practice following a rigorous progression. The last two dives are devoted exclusively to exploration. At the end of this course, you will be awarded the PADI 1st level. A blend of sport, relaxation, and solidarity whilst learning a language, this course is certainly a wonderful experience.
