Description

As members of the quality-control IALC association, both Stein Study and our partners at the superb France Langue language school aim to create the best experience possible for our students studying abroad. Together we ensure that tutoring, accommodation and leisure facilities are of the highest standard. The dedicated staff at France Langue use innovative and stimulating teaching methods to ensure that students develop a genuine passion for French. 

During your stay, you’ll attend twenty lessons per week alongside Irish and international students where you will learn in an engaging intercultural environment. These will improve your overall French comprehension and expression as you gain confidence speaking with fellow students both during and outside class.

Students also have the option to attend six Leaving Certificate preparation classes per week. These focus solely on the Leaving Certificate French syllabus to ensure students are ready to confidently sit their upcoming oral and written exams.

Accommodation

To ensure students have a positive experience during their immersive stay in Biarritz, we understand that safe and comfortable accommodation within a convenient distance of your language school is key.

Students of France Langue will stay with a friendly host family who have been rigorously vetted by the school’s staff. Here they will be provided with full board and can share a double room with another student. If you have any preferences or food allergies, please let us know at the point of booking so that we can do our best to accommodate your needs.

Both the Stein Study team and France Langue staff understand the needs and concerns of students and their parents. We are always available to guide and support you before, during and after your trip in Biarritz.

School Introduction Video

You’ll need to arrange your own flights. But we are happy to help advise you on the most direct route.

Students can request to share a room with a friend or can be placed with another student if they have travelled alone. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people.

While there is the option for half or full board, you’ll need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.

Having a foundation of conversational French is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.

Students can opt to stay from one to four weeks

You can fly out any Sunday of the year and stay between one and four weeks

Transfer between the airport and your accommodation is provided on arrival and departure.

Students will stay with a previously vetted host family close to their language school in Biarritz.
