Accommodation & Meals
Large and airy 4-bedded rooms with one wardrobe per Teen, and shared facilities. Shared showers and toilets in separate cubicles are located on each floor and all are clean and well maintained. Bed sheets are provided and changed once a week. Towels are provided.
Boys and girls are accommodated on separate floors with no access between floors.
We make every effort to ensure that rooms are shared with children of different nationalities and of similar age so that they continue speaking French outside of the classroom and make new friends. Parents may request for their child to share with a particular friend and this will be considered but cannot always be guaranteed.
At ACCORD there are no hidden fees: student laundry is organised once per week, usually on Wednesday or Thursday, and it is a free of charge service.
At the ACCORD Saint Nicolas residence, Teens are supervised 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. At night time, the residence is locked and staff including security people are present at all times.
Students are not allowed to go off Campus unsupervised by our ACCORD staff, even when parents give their children a signed parental discharge/authorisation.
A medical assistant is also available at the residence 24 hours per day in case a Teen needs medical attention. In case, a Teen needs further medical assistance, a medical practitioner (Doctor) will come to the residence and if necessary, the Teen will be taken to the closest hospital.

“Play and Learn”: this is how Teens describe the ACCORD’s teaching methodology. ACCORD teaching focuses on oral communication using authentic documents such as songs, TV programs, movies and magazines.
ACCORD teachers have compiled a wide range of games and activities that make the learning of grammar, structure, vocabulary and pronunciation interesting and fun. The teachers, all University graduates, are fully qualified in the teaching of French as a foreign language. They are experienced in teaching young people French.
ACCORD School is a “Qualité FLE” accredited school
On the last day of their stay, Teens will be given an end of course certificate, stating their level and the number of hours of French they have studied, and the progress made during their course.
An ACCORD transfer service is available. On arrival, our staff will meet students at the airport or train station and take them to the ACCORD Saint Nicolas residence.
On departure, our transfer service escorts students to check-in.
If you book our transfer service for your child(ren) – pick up and/or drop off at the airport -, please read our instructions carefully to guarantee your child(ren)’s safe arrival and departure.
