Photohunt: School

Institut de Francais

This week's Photohunt theme is school. The last time I was in school was in 2007. I attended Institut de Francais in Villefranche sur Mer. This is a French immersion school where I spent 4 weeks learning a bit of French. It was excellent school and I learned a tremendous amount in the 4 weeks. I have to admit the school was challenging but it was just what I needed. But more important - it was fun.

The school is beautiful and a lovely location on the French Riviera in the small village of Villefranche sur Mer just outside of Nice. September is a great time to attend - warm enough to enjoy but not too hot.

I want to go there! What a great experience. Gorgeous shot of the harbor.

I've always wanted to do an immersion course, hard work though it may be. It looks a lovely place and that should make it pleasant if not easier. And that's not so far from where both my sons live so .... Who knows?

Villefranche sur Mer is not at all the last place I would go to learn French.
It's just beautiful . . .

"My" School this week is from a very different area

What a great set of school photos :-)


Looks like you had fun at school! :)

Hi Marta, that's a really gorgeous location. Great choice for this week's theme. I love the little garden where everyone is studying and that view is stunning.

I remember reading your blog entries and really enjoyed it. Have a great weekend.

What a beautiful school!

The school is very beautiful and the scenery around it is fantastic. What fun to take an immersion language course.

What a great place to learn a language! And I'm sure you got more fluent after a glass of wine or two...

Now this looks like a seriously fun school. That harbor view is awesome. And studying in that garden! I bet this was such a great experience.

what a beautiful school. the view over the harbor is just magical.

Great -a school for adults - you have to love that!
