Positive aspects of school
The teachers were very nice and inspiring. They all had a very positive attitude, were very helpful and encouraged the students in the learning process. They made the classes very interactive, fun and always tried to incorporate fun games and recent and relevant topics for discussion. I always looked forward to going to the classes.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Especially if you visit Guadeloupe in high season, try to arrange a rental car as soon as possible in order to explore the island after class and especially during the weekends. Be aware that the public transport system is not very convenient, particularly on the weekend. If you want to visit popular tourist destinations like Petite Terre, get your tickets as soon as possible, because only a limited number of visitors are allowed per day and tours tend to sell out.
Judging from the discription on the school's website I had expected that the school would organise more social activities and opportunities to explore the island and local culture. But unfortunately while I was there, there were no activities organised by the school and everything was done at the students' own initiative. I found this a pity, since everything was new for the students, who had to figure out everything by themselves while the staff would have more knowledge on all of these things.
