There should be also an oral test, besides the written one.

Positive aspects of school
experienced teachers, mediateques (you can see french movies with sub titles, there are many work books or audio text which you can use free of charge). In this school you can have a contact not only with foreign students who learn French but also French students who learn English, Spanish and German. It's something very unique of this school. You have many chance to speak in French with ordinary French people. (not only teachers or somebody who works in the shops)
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Royan is a very small town, so it's a bit boring town but for those who want to improve his capacity of French, it's one of the best locations. You must not miss the party at Pub Astoria on the first Tuesday.

In the beginning, I chose 4 weeks. But I found this school being so good that I extended my cours. There was another Spanish girl who did the same extention. Information for Japanese student: There were not many Japanese student in this school when I was here. (Only 4 students) If you look for a school where there are not too many japanese students, it might be a very good choice. There is a chance to introduce our culture to other students, so it is very nice idea to bring something (photobook, food) to show.

This is a fantastic course if you just want to buckle down and learn French in an excellent school with no distractions. If you are looking for a tourist/language course, pick a more exciting location.

The course was well organized, and the teachers good. The only hesitation I have about giving top marks, was the teachers direct unwillingness to take questions in any other language than French. That policy is, in my opinion, old-fashioned, and suits only students with a rather extensive vocabulary in French. At my level, and that of my fellow students, explanations and comparisons in English or any other language, is essential to lower the "burden" of learning a foreign language. I know this is a debate between two learning philosophies, but I'd hoped that CAREL belonged to a more modern school on this matter. Everything else was top value, both technical equipment and learning facilities.
