Learn French in Nice – Your Immersion Homestay Program

Meet Your French Teacher and Host

Bonjour, my name is Geneviève and I am a native French teacher with a Master of French as a Second Language.

It’s been almost 15  years now that I have been teaching French to foreigners, and I must confess that I have not yet got tired of meeting new students and sharing my beautiful French language, my country and my French way of life with them.

I specialize in teaching high intermediate and advanced levels, and preparing students for tests such as DELF or DALF: although I am fluent in English, I use French in the classroom so you are really immersed in the French language.

My program is very flexible, and can be quite intensive, for students preparing the DELF or DALF exam for example, or lighter for people who wish to have more free time to explore the region of Nice, with me or by themselves.

I will be happy to welcome you alone, or two people traveling together.


My Flat in Nice, French Riviera

My apartment is right in downtown Nice, within walking distance of the beach, shopping, restaurants, daily markets and museums.

It is only a few minutes walk from the train station and several bus stops, which makes visiting the city and the surrounding region very easy.

For your French immersion homestay, you have two options:

  • Stay with me in my flat in your private bedroom and bathroom,
  • Stay in your private studio located on the same floor as my apartment

Your Room And Private Bathroom in Your Teacher’s Home

If you decide to share my flat, you will enjoy your own spacious room with your private bathroom. We’ll both hang out in the living area and the large terrace to enjoy the sun, read, share meals, enjoy the view…

Your Own Studio in Nice, on the French Riviera

If you prefer, you can stay in my studio apartment, conveniently located just across from my apartment.

Your studio features a large balcony with a table and a great open view over the hills of Nice, a sofa/reading area, a comfy double bed, a bathroom with a shower and toilet, and a fully equipped kitchen with a sitting bar area and a washing machine.

It can accommodate up two people sleeping together.

Learn French in Nice, France

No doubt you’ve heard of the French Riviera, “La Côte d’Azur”. It’s one of the most beautiful and historically rich places in the world. Home to famous movie stars and artists, but also regular French people, such as myself!

Next to my house, you’ll find the cities of Monaco, Monte Carlo, Menton, Vence, Grasse, St Paul de Vence, Cannes… There is so much to see and do that I can’t list it all…

Although the French Riviera mild year-round, the Alps are around the corner and this region is also popular for skiing in winter with famous French ski resorts such as Isola 2000, Auron, Valberg, La Colmiane…

Practical Information About you French Immersion Residential Course

Please note I no longer teach children and prefer teaching intermediate and advanced levels.

Getting To My Flat

Nice is a major French city, with an international airport. My house is near Nice’s central tain station.

Renting a Car

Since my apartment and your private studio are located in the heart of Nice, there is plenty of public transportation around and you don’t need to rent a car if you don’t want to.

Wifi

There is free access to Internet.

Smoking

I don’t smoke and smoking is not allowed in my apartments.

Diets

I enjoy cooking familial and traditional Provençal food. I often buy my groceries in the open-air markets in Nice.
With your guidance, I could cook vegetarian, vegan or other specialty diets.

Pets

I have no pets and I can only accept a very well behaved small dog if you are staying in my studio.

A typical 1 week (7 days, 6 night) immersion includes but is not limited to:

  • 15 hours of one to one classes per week, usually held in the morning
  • Private studio across from my flat, on the same floor, or stay in a spacious room with private bathroom in my apartment: your choice!
  • Breakfast and dinner with me – I love to cook and you are welcome to assist me if you’d like while we speak French!
  • 2 excursions or cultural activities in the afternoon, such as exploring the old Nice, or visiting a museum, or watching a movie with me…
    There are many things to do around here, and I’m always open to suggestions.
  • Preferred arrival on Sunday, departure on Saturday

The price with these options is 1600 Euros for one person.

Entries to museums, lunches outside during our excursions or unplanned activities you wish to add to this program are not included in the price.

I’m very flexible and will be happy to arrange whatever you’d like: so just let me know if there are other things you are interested in.

Additional Guest

For one additional guest in half board, the price per week is:

  • Euros 300 without lessons or excursions,
  • Euros 800 with shared lessons and excursions.

I can welcome up to two people traveling together. I can give lessons to both guests, however I often host couples and give formal lessons to one person as the other one goes for a walk, then we all meet for dinner and practice French together.

I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!

    1. Whether you’ll be traveling by yourself or with friends/family (and if applicable the number of people just staying at the teacher or also taking classes and a bit more about them)
    2. The duration of your desired immersion stay and whether you are flexible about the immersion dates
    3. A few details about yourself: your hobbies, your French learning goal, the kind of immersion you'd like (little/lots of homework, outdoor or more indoor activities), any food allergies or other problems you may have. The teachers will be opening their own home to you and although they’ll ask you more questions if they are able to fit you in, knowing a bit about you from the start would be really helpful and a huge gain of time.

Doing a week of language immersion is a fabulous experience. My week with Geneviève met my expectations. She started with an assessment of my skill level and from there did an excellent job of tailoring each day’s lessons to areas I needed/wanted to improve. She also varied the format with dif… Read more

Daily conversations in your native language are really comprised of simple sentences and a limited vocabulary. Students with intermediate to advanced French skills will find that with daily use the basic language will become subconscious and your attention will focus on more and more advanced lev… Read more
