I really liked the free guided tour the school organized. If you have the possibility, try that! It is not every week :-(

There is no library in the school to read French books for students or videos in French... in the other school, where I was last year, there was a small library for students and it was very useful.

Friendly atmosphere, good mix of students of different ages and cultures, dvd library, class size of 9 people means there is lots of opportunity to speak. Good mix of grammar and practical French.
Other comments
The workshops in the afternoon are good, however they offer the same 3-4 workshops every month, which is a bit repetitive if you are studying for longer than 4 weeks. We had the same teacher everyday for 6 weeks, it would be beneficial to have a different teacher for part of the day or month. All the teachers are great, but different teachers help create a different class dynamic, learning experience and make it a lot more fun! I would also like to see more use of props, to add more variety to the day!

Excellent teachers, a very good teaching program. Everyone was involved. Even though I preferred walking to and from the courses, the school is close to the subway, also close to a supermarket - "Supermarche G20".
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
When selecting "staying with a host family", I checked the options "no children", "no pets" and "no smoking" and as the result I stayed with a very nice host with no pets and no children. One girl of our group, however, had to put up with an annoying child, probably because she didn't select "no children" option.

Stay for a month so you can have a go at all the free activities, which really help practice your French. Meetup website is a really good way to meet people to practice your French with. Free English tea and coffee! Free use of their computer with internet or their wifi.

Some people in my class had tried other language schools in Paris first and then moved to Atelier 9 because it was so much better.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you would like to be more confident in speaking French - this is the place. Also, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly - more like a free school or Steiner school.

Their location, atomosphere, classrooms, teachers,everything was great enough. My teacher was helpful and energetic to teach us. She taught us until we completely understood and almost never gave up. I'm appreciative about that because I could manage to figure out what I should do. In addition, I could use free wifi, drink free coffee or tea, take a small rest with their cozy sofas or chairs. I recommend this school a lot to learn french!
