in my long term experience it s not english speaking groups that will help keep you kids english up to level, it s reading & writing-the oral side doesnt seem to disappear even if the kids go to all french speaking schools & live in a solidly french speaking environment

Reading and school holiday activity type books are a better investment (but then of course you have to participate too)

I've also been looking to find some activities for my daughter (also 6 and fluent in English, not so much in French) and I'm afraid there isn't much, at least in Nice. We tried the English Club at the Kids Club but I can't recommend, the teachers speak English but the children don't (French kids who come to learn to speak English), activities like yoga were nice but English lessons much too easy.

Hi there!

Is she interested in drama dance and music?

A8 exit Antibes Sophia there is a theatre group Performing Arts .. my daughter goes and loves it. I think your daughter is too young for the Tuesday group but in May they are having 5 workshops on saturday mornings for younger kids .. they are working on Shakespreare's The Tempest and my daughter came out last night singing her heart out!  http://performingarts.fr/

I saw at the rehearsal venue  (KidooLand) they are hoping to start a bilingual group in the Antibes area maybe check with them for more info? http://www.kidooland.com/

 

Good luck!
