Hello Rik,

welcome to the area. I suppose you are working in Sophia Antipolis too?

In my case, my employer recommended a French school for foreigners in Sophia, Elika Training (try googling that). Opt for group courses for beginners, because doing solo would be very expensive. You will need at least 40 hours to get a basic understanding of the language (well French language is full of irregular verbs which make it a bit of a challenge - in the beginning at least).

If you need more info please do ask.


Best Rgds,

Hi Rikke. 

I think it might be best for you to look for schools in Cannes or Antibes. The College International de Cannes and Centre International d'Antibes are popular I think. 

Held og lykke!

You are going to find this strange comming from a french guy, but of what I see every day, the best way of learning french is to speak with them, find french friends , and even the other way around , when french people go to England best way is to be with the english, once starting to understand some words then some small courses can help you correct some words, but I have seen english friends spend a lot of money in courses and other leanring outside and guess who speaks better : )
