Biarritz is known as one of Europe’s most popular surf destinations with quality conditions and a vibrant lifestyle all year long. Our language school is ideally located in a quiet side street, only a 10 minute walk from the town centre and its beaches.

 

With 17 years of experience, we teach the French language and surfing to guests from around the world and of all age groups. Our goal is to help learners achieve a good command of the language in all aspects of communication skills.

 

We enrich their knowledge, based on fun and practical activities ; allowing them to develop both their speaking and writing skills. The teaching staff meets twice a week to monitor and personalize each student’s progress throughout their stay.

 

Total immersion : Even during the breaks, our teachers will encourage you to speak French !
Our small classes : 13 students maximum (8 average) with a dedicated and experienced team.
• The programs are planned according to the learning abilities of each individual with a lot of multimedia equipment: audio, video, internet.
• The lessons are supplemented with teaching manuals and authentic documents.

Our French mother tongue teachers are FLE university graduates (diploma of French teaching as a Foreign Language) and have significant teaching experience in France and abroad. Some of them have additional training in other sectors (foreign languages, communication, etc…).

 

Enthusiastic and attentive, they endeavor to make your stay as pleasant and rewarding as possible, improving accuracy and fluency through role play, simulations and discussions.

Based on the CECRL, lessons are designed to develop all language skills :
→ speaking
→ listening
→ reading
→ writing

 

Surfing has been part of the everyday life in Biarritz for more than 50 years.  It became part of its ambience, its culture and its economy. We offer you the best way to combine learning/improving your French language skills with getting a solid start into your surfing life.

Surf schools, surf shops, surf competitions and the recent festivals : “nuit de la glisse”, … there are so many ways provided to honour the ocean. Our surf school partner in Biarritz will provide you with the surf equipment and teach you the basics of surfing.

 

If you already passed the beginner level and feel more like you need some advice on how to improve your technique, then our qualified surf instructors will adjust to your current surfing level and take it from there.
