This unique academic experience, in conjunction with living in Antibes-Juan-Les-Pins, is sure to increase students’ French language proficiency and help them gain priceless knowledge and insight into French life and culture.
CIA language classes meet 3 hours per day Monday through Friday in the morning.
Certain days will be reserved for excursions. The ISU program includes at least 3 of the following: Cannes, Monaco, Nice, St. Tropez, Sainte Marguerite Island.
Students must register for courses prior to departure for the French Riviera. A course selection form will be posted to your MyCEA Account, which should be completed no later than the program closure date. You will begin your session with a language placement exam, and you will be placed in a language class with other students of your same level. In order to ensure that you receive credit for the level you place into, it is in your best interest to have courses, including alternates, approved by your academic advisor prior to submitting your course selection form.
Included in the program fee are the following activities:
Walking tour of the city and welcome meal
Orientation to CEA, the facilities and program
French wine and cheese tasting
Cultural activities such as French cooking, dance, art
Students live in shared flats/apartments with kitchen facilities in Antibes within a 20 minute walk of CIA. Shopping at local markets and cooking on your own can help keep meals reasonably priced, but many restaurants and local cuisine are available as well!
