Centre Caribéen de Langues
Created to meet the needs of those who wish to learn French, the Centre Caribéen de Langues welcomes you to a tropical paradise. We cater for your individual needs by offering classes in small, concentrated groups with engaging and enthusiastic teachers. Situated in Sainte-Anne, Guadeloupe, our school enables you to study whilst enjoying a relaxing Caribbean holiday. Just a 10 minute walk to the center of Sainte Anne and a 5 minute walk to the Caravelle beach, we are located on quite possibly the most beautiful part of the island.
The school is a pleasant and relaxed environment with a friendly atmosphere. We have a large terrace, plenty of fresh air and an ocean view. It's the perfect place to benefit from the diverse backgrounds and experiences of your classmates as we host an international clientele, which means that French is the language principally used in and outside the classroom. We have a variety of classes from which you can choose between general group courses, classes “en famille” or private and specific courses. Just let us know!

Our approach is aimed at skill acquisition in understanding and producing French; it also focuses
on learners’ autonomy . Courses are personalized for students with weekly reworking of the
groups, based on the needs of students. If no group corresponds to the level of a student then
individual (face to face) lessons are provided with reduced hours.
Personalized level testing is done on the first day of class. This includes an oral evaluation and, when applicable, a written one.

Guadeloupe is a French department located in the West Indies. The island is in fact two islands that form the shape of a butterfly (Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre):
Basse-Terre is the home of Guadeloupe’s capital city also called Basse Terre. This side is mountainous and receives most of the rain. Here you find the national park, the rain forest with spectacular waterfalls as well as the volcano.
Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe's largest city, is situated on Grande-Terre. This island is mostly flat and rocky made up of limestone and coral, chaparral forests with a rather dry climate. It is here that we find some of the best beaches.
We have only two seasons in Guadeloupe: one called “carême” or dry season which lasts from January to June and the wet season which runs from July to December. We have an average temperature of 27° c (80.6° f), highs of 32° c (89.6° f) and rarely less than 20° c (68° f). Eastern Winds, called “trade winds”, contribute to the consistent moderate tropical heat.
Sainte-Anne is located about 20 kilometers from the airport. In this charming little town, you will find breathtaking ocean views of clear blue green waters, a lively market selling local produce, spices and souvenirs and plenty of places to eat or have a cool drink. The large white sand beach is protected by a natural coral seawall, which keeps waves and tide to a minimum.
During the afternoon and at weekends, you can take advantage of a great panel of possible activities: Beaches, hiking, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, golf…
Opportunities to go out on evenings can be found in Sainte-Anne and the surrounding area : Salsa, concerts, board games, etc. This is a nice way to meet new friends.
We can advise you on the most interesting sites to take advantage of. We can also put you in contact with trustworthy professional guides or agencies with qualified staff.
Our students opinion is really important for us. We always aim to provide the best studying experience possible. Here are a few reviews from some of our students :
