Vous êtes la meilleure école où j’ai eu la chance d’étudier le français.


À l’AF de Nice j’apprends des nouvelles choses chaque semaine, chaque jour même ! Les professeurs sont tellement pédagogiques, ils arrivent toujours à expliquer dans une manière très claire.


I had an amazing time. Your teachers are fantastic! I really enjoyed my homestay, I learned more that I ever expected.


Les professeurs sont excellents. J’ai appris beaucoup en très peu de temps grâce à vous. Vous êtes une partie du plus grand voyage de ma vie.


L’AFN propose une ambiance chaleureuse. C’est ma famille et ma maison à Nice. Je suis ravie d’étudier ici. Un grand merci à tous pour cet immensurable plaisir.


L’AFN, c’est ma famille en France, ma 2e maison !

Welcome to Nice
the capital of the French Riviera

Come and study in the
sunniest city in France!

Located by the Mediterranean Sea, nested between sea and mountains, in a timeless light, Nice distinguishes itself and its charming contrasts by being physically close to Italy and remaining a modern French town.

The Metropolis Nice-Côte d’Azur, the first to be established in France, gathers 550.000 inhabitants, 35.000 of which are students. It is the second tourist destination in France, and it attracts each year 10 million tourists thanks to its international airport, the largest after Paris, located less then ten minutes away from the center of town: there is a flight to Paris every half hour and you can easily go and spend a weekend there.

With 300 sunny days a year (the average Air Quality Index is below 20!), the city of Nice provides visitors with eight kilometers of beaches, along the Promenade des Anglais, but also six ski resorts and the Mercantour National Park, which is heaven for hiking lovers.

Thanks to a reliable and cheap train and bus network managed by the Department and the Metropolis, you can go to Cannes, Monaco or Italy under an hour.
