Property management

How wonderful to be back in your holiday home on the Cote d’Azur! The Mediterranean coast, the beautiful landscapes and the French way of life.

But it takes time and energy to take care of a holiday home. And that’s even more complicated when you live far away and don’t speak French

French courses with Scandinav’Azur

Don’t you feel comfortable in French? Does it prevent you from feeling fully at home on the Cote d’Azur? Would you love to be able to chat with your neighbour, make yourself understood in shops or book an outing or a table in a restaurant?
Scandinav’Azur can help you make life easier when you are on holiday.

With oral French language lessons focused on typical everyday situations you’ll be able to improve your French rapidly regardless of your initial level. Language learning through active, targeted teaching has been proven to be efficient. There is no better way to learn a language than through the use of common everyday situations. With Scandinav’Azur you’ll soon be able to communicate without help. You’ll feel more at ease speaking French, and more at home in France.

I speak French, English and Danish (my mother tongue) fluently. I have a solid background in language teaching – specifically I worked as a language instructor for Berlitz Language Schools for 8 years, during which I taught French, English and the Berlitz method to other teachers.

Why not give it a go? French may be easier than you think !
