The varied teaching styles that culminated in an all-round experience. They mixed grammar with lively debates, and as a beginner I didn't think I would be able to articulate arguments but we were all encouraged to give it our best and the teacher corrected some of our efforts afterwards. They understood we wouldn't pick up everything in order, and gave us the freedom to absorb as much as each individual could on a daily basis. Significantly improved my confidence whilst attempting to hold a conversation.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If the classes are held in Estienne d'Orves, it is better to book accommodation in the residence Colinette. It is newer and offers single rooms with a small bathroom and a refrigerator. The second residence is located in the territory of the campus. It is old, and the rooms are for four students. Unfortunately, the air conditioning is not provided anywhere.
Other comments
I studied in the campus Estienne d'Orves. The biggest disadvantage was the lack of air conditioning in the school building and in the rooms where the students lived. In July, the temperature was +35 degrees - it was difficult to study in such circumstances. The lessons were usually held without much thrill. Two excursions per week (Wednesday and Saturday). The rest of the activities depend on students´ choice. In most cases we were taken to the beach in the afternoon and left there (without any supervision), the bus picked us up in the evening . But many students moved around the city on their own. The most improtant thing is to be at a fixed time at the campus in the evening.

Have been there already in autumn and I loved it. Unfortunately, this time you cannot compare. The teacher was rather unfriendly and everything was very impersonal. I do not know if it might have been due to a lack of staff but this time, unfortunately, we were very dissatisfied.

Overall, the school is very good. It is located in the centre, near the main train station.
Other comments
The only bad thing is that the patio/garden of the school is always occupied. Due to the lack of classrooms, many lessons (especially the private ones) were held there so students cannot enjoy it.

They are taking on a lot of students, good for business, but the result is a rather crowded and noisy environment, that at times makes it hard to concentrate during lessons.

I think that future students should try to speak french even if they do not know it. It will help them to overcome their language barrier!!!!

Try to watch french films. Certainly at first you will not understand anything, but after 7 days you will understand. Do not be afraid to speak french if you make a lot of mistakes. It is normal. And I am sure that when you will come back home you will be proud of yourself.
