The campus is beautiful

The campus is beautiful and the faculty are all so nice. I love having a maid that cleans our bedding once a week and our floors more frequently. Having the staff speak to us solely in french is very beneficial. There seems to be some difficulty in placing students correctly through into the right level class.

Cannes you believe it!

Cannes is an amazing experience. Classes are all in french and you are to speak in french all day. The city life is good and the beach life is great as well. AIFS is super easy to work with and super helpful.

Overall my experience so far has been GREAT!

The website said we would have air-conditioning and we didn't, so that was a bit disappointing. It gets pretty hot. Also, the area can be a bit unsafe.

A month in Cannes

Being able to live in Cannes, France for a month right across from the beach is a rare opportunity. And to be surrounded by a wonderful staff and new friends makes the experience that much more memorable and fun! I'm so lucky to be studying here and learning so much from interacting with the surrounding culture. I would definitely recommend this program to other students hoping to study in France.

So far Cannes has been a amazing experience.

The college and staff is amazing and classes are challenging and interactive. The small classroom vibe provides for 1 on 1 instruction when needed. Although the area has so much to offer I do wish the school provided more safety/security for when student are off campus. Aside from that I would recommend this experience for anyone!

I only gave cultural immersion a C because there are so many people who speak English. Other than that, everything has been absolutely WONDERFUL! The administration, the area, the living situation, and everything has been great. I feel so supported and I'm learning a lot!

Amazing experience in the south of France!

When I was planning my study abroad I knew that I wanted to go to France and live in an authentic French town and get an incredible experience. Studying and living in Cannes was amazing. The college was very small which I loved because I got to meet and become good friends with all the other students from different countries. Because Cannes is not a huge touristy city (minus the Festival), I was not able to rely on speaking English so it was a great way to improve my French. It is a gorgeous city and close enough to Nice, Monaco, St. Tropez, and other parts of the Cote d'Azur. I highly recommend this program if you want to study abroad in France. You will absolutely love the college, the beaches, the people, the town, and of course the food and wine :)

Wonderful

The AIFS program had a wonderful administration who help you with virtually anything. I was a little disappointed with the location because there are a lot of tourists and people who speak English but there are also plenty of people who speak French. The rooms are nice but in general Cannes is not handicap accessible. I have had my own personal ups and downs here in Cannes but the program with AIFS has been really good overall.

The academics are very good.

I love the teachers that I have and they do a really good job making really long classes interactive and enjoyable. Living facilities are very nice but there is no air conditioning or a refrigerator to store food. There are also a lot of stairs, so it is not handicap accessible. It is awesome to meet students from all over the world but I don't feel a huge immersion into the French culture. The program administration is excellent. They are great at providing information, assistance, and at planning programs and excursions.

Overall, the experience has been a good one thus far and I would definitely recommend it to others.

The living situation is pretty bad. I am stuck in a triple with the equivalent floor space of some of the singles. The teachers are great and I am learning a lot. The program administration is not very organized.
