You’ve always wanted to learn French but don’t know where to go? This week, we tell you all about Biarritz and Anglet’s language schools.
We have selected for you the best language schools in the area. And if you don’t know where to sleep during your stay, don’t forget to check your favourite hostel Nami House!
Why not me?
If “Oh la la” and “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?” are the only French words you can tell, maybe it is time to take some lessons if you want to seduce that French chick you met last month!
I know, as if French language wasn’t difficult enough, French people like to add as many extra letters as they can to the words (or swallow them when they speak, depending on your point of view 😊).
But don’t worry: as years pass by, we have welcomed tens of guests who now master this beautiful language!
So why not you? It’s always the same thing: a bit hard in the beginning, but thanks to intensive morning classes, after a few days of practice, you’ll see that words are coming!
Thus don’t be afraid of taking the plunge: especially when there are so many good language schools in such a beautiful area! Not only you will learn a new language while having fun, but you will also get to practice surf, yoga and all the activities the region has to offer!
Teachers are all graduated and experienced in teaching French as a Foreign Language
To help you choose the school which fits the best, we have decided to list all the advantages each one of them has to offer. All the schools in the list bellow have been selected for their professionalism. Teachers are all graduated and experienced in teaching French as a Foreign Language.
SOFI64: beach vibe option in Anglet
SOFI64: our historical partner for a few years now. The school is located in Anglet at a short walking distance from Nami House and for sure Stephanie and her team will welcome you the best way.
Moreover, in partnership with a surf school in Anglet, SOFI64 organizes surf classes to clear your mind after the intensive morning French class.
In addition to that, you can also choose to take yoga class to relax after the surf.
⇒ To conclude, SOFI64 is the best option if you want to spend some time in the beach resort city of Anglet, less touristy and therefore less packed than the neighbouring city of Biarritz (especially during summer season).
BLCI: family-run language school in Biarritz
It’s been more than 10 years that Isabelle and Philippe opened Biarritz Language Course Institute (BLCI).
The school is located in a huge Basque house with different classrooms as well as relaxing rooms and with a beautiful flowered garden. This family-run language school has a nice laid-back atmosphere.
On top of that, it offers tons of activities for a memorable stay in the beautiful Basque Country: surfing obviously, but also trekking (as a former guide, Philippe will take you to amazing places: notably a night trek to admire the sunset from the Basque mountains!), French cuisine, golf and so on…
BLCI is ideally located in a small quiet street just a few minutes walk from the city centre and the beach. There is a free shuttle service all year round.
⇒ BLCI is probably the best choice if you want to fully enjoy Biarritz and the Basque Country!
The Inspire Academy: French, English or Spanish class?
If you are planning a trip to France (or Basque Country for French citizens) and want to learn a foreign language during your stay, the Inspire Academy offers French… but also English and Spanish classes!
You will also take part in inspiring experiences and fun activities while using the language in real life practice: most of the courses take place outside of a classroom, in parks, along the beach or in a café!
The inspire Academy also helps with school assignments or preparation for school exams in a positive learning environment.
⇒ Thus, if you want to experience a different way of learning a language, you can contact Maryam and her team: she’ll give you all the positive energy and motivation only American people get !
A different vision of life
Whether you are a total beginner or want to master the language, you don’t have anymore any excuse for not joining us along the beautiful Basque Coast!
A different language is a different vision of life.
Biarritz and Anglet have all the schools (and activities) you can dream of to achieve your goal.
And if everything works out with this French girl you’ve just met, please let us know! After more than 30 years, I’m still trying to understand French women …
I couldn’t finish this article without quoting the famous Italian film maker Federico Fellini who once said: “A different language is a different vision of life”.
It couldn’t be truer!
A bientôt !
