Helpful websites for your stay in Nice!

Hello everybody!

The holidays are over and everyone is back to their old routines. School and work has begun and even though it’s a new year and we’re all looking forward to new experiences, many of us still enjoy the comfortable feeling of everyday life. But of course that’s not the case for everyone, some are starting off the new year by moving, starting a new school or a new job. For many of the new students here at Azurlingua, it’s both a new country, new language, new culture and a new school. I remember when I first came here last year in August I was both nerves and happy. At that time I didn’t know that the future would bring exciting things to me.

So for all you new students, I have some links I would like to share with you. They’re links that I have used a lot while living here in Nice!

Bonjour de France
This is a really good website to practice your French. It’s free and offers a lot of different exercises, games and tests for all levels! You can practice everything from your vocabulary to grammar and much more!

Ligne d’Azur
This is the website for the public transportation system here in Nice and on the Côte d’Azur. Here you can look up time tables for the buses and the tramway, or which bus to take if you want to go to the airport, to Monaco, to Cannes or anywhere els on the Côte d’Azur!

French verb conjugation
We who study French know that this is a language with a lot of verb conjugations, which sometimes drives us a bit crazy. How a verb is conjugated isn’t something you can look up in your dictionary, and definitely not with google translate! With this website you just type in the word in the infinitive tense and you get a list of all the different conjugated forms for that verb.

Films de France
This is an English website about French films, both old classics and new releases. It’s frequently updated and every film has a plot description in English. I think that one of the best ways to learn a new language is to watch films, but maybe the films that your French teacher recommends isn’t really your taste of cinema. With this website you can find the films that you think you would enjoy and that match your level of French.

Nice Tourisme
This website is offered in both English and French and includes all important information about Nice. You can discover what’s going on in the city and the surrounding area, good hotels, restaurants and clubs, how to get around and much more! I have now lived in Nice for 6 months and don’t really consider myself a tourist, but I still use this website frequently.

I hope you will find these links helpful! If you know a good, useful or simply funny website that you use either to improve your French, or to facilitate your everyday life here in France, please tell me about it by making a comment!

Her Serene Highness

As I was doing a little research on the subject of today’s article, I could not help but notice the similarities between us.  Why, she was an east coast American, just like me! She lived in the French Riviera, just like me! She held dual citizenship with a European nation, just like me! Sure, she [...]

Culture Shock in France

I’m someone who travels quite a bit, having lived in South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia for most of the last several years, and I have always enjoyed learning about different cultures along the way. After all that more “exotic” travel, you can imagine how I let myself believe that moving to France would [...]
