Actilangue was established in 1977 and it is registered as a private institute of higher education by the Ministry of National Education. The school building is located in a pleasant area full of cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques, in the heart of Nice close to the Hotel Negresco. The beach and the famous Promenade des Anglais are only a two minute walk away. A special feature of the Actilangue program is the emphasis on conversational French. Students in the intensive courses have either one or two lessons in small conversation groups.
