Before signing up for one of their outings check how long you'll get at the destination. Often cheaper to organise a trip yourself & you get more time at the destination.

The staff at the office was most helpful with non-academic matters (where to eat, what to do on holidays, etc.). That, combined with the excellent teachers, made for a great experience.

the classroom was too small. If the flight back home is on a Sunday evening you have no possibility to store your suitcase at the Appartvalley Residence (the reception is closed from 12.00 to 17.00 o´clock!) or in school (is closed saturday and sunday)

- I only took 2 weeks, which doens't suit the speed french is taught at all. Consider taking at least 4 weeks - if you want to meet other students and go out with them, take an apartment, if you want to learn french and get to know the french, join a host family!

The neighborhood around the school is delightfully cosmopolitan reminding me of the Latin Quarter in Paris. Charming narrow streets and a world-wide selection of inexpensive restaurants. Excellent bookshop (Mollat) within ten minute stroll from the school.
