The French language courses are academically demanding, and aimed at teenagers who seriously want to improve their French language skills.  The French language college staff are aware that the students are on holiday and will do all they can to help students enjoy their French experience, both in and outside the classroom.
Language students can follow a two week or longer French course in June to August (and there are some one week course dates in June and August only).
