Study French in The Home of Your Own Private Teacher in Monaco


The Principality of Monaco is the second smallest country in the world (after Vatican City), and even though it’s small, it’s packed full of things to do, so it’s a fantastic place to study French abroad! This incredibly safe, friendly, and fascinating city is divided into four areas: Monaco-Ville, Condamine, Monte-Carlo, and Fontvieille. The official language is French, but Monégasque, Italian, and English are also widely spoken and understood, which makes travelling and living abroad easier for many internationals.

Monaco-Ville, which is known as the “le rocher”, is the oldest part of the city and has lots of impressive medieval architecture. This charming district is ideal for pedestrians since many of Monaco’s top sites are within walking distance of each other. Here you’ll find The Palais Princier, the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, the Monaco Cathedral, and Fort Antoine, which now operates as a theatre during the summer.

Even if you’re not interested in gambling, you should visit the famous Monte-Carlo Casino and Opera House. These spectacular buildings were built by Charles Carnier in 1878 and they’re resplendent with marble, gold, sculptures, and frescoes. The Grand Casino’s impressive appearance has helped to make it the most famous Casino in Europe!

Various annual events make Monaco an exciting place to study French all year round. In January there’s the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival, in April there’s the Rolex Tennis Masters, in May there’s the only F1 Grand Prix held on city streets, and in July and August the skies are lit up by the Monte-Carlo International Fireworks Festival. There are also more fireworks on November 19th, Monaco’s National Holiday.

The Live & Learn program offers you a unique and truly immersive way to experience this exciting country. Your host family will be able to recommend particular places of interest as they get to know you personally through your private, professional French lessons.

You’ll also learn that much more quickly and effectively in a place where you can consistently apply your language skills as you learn them. If you don’t have a good reason to learn a language then you won’t, but Monaco’s many fabulous festivals and exciting events are sure to give you more reasons to learn French than you can count!

We also offer this opportunity to learn French in the home of your own personal teacher in Quebec CityFrance and Geneva. Alternatively, check out our full list of Live & Learn destinations.
