Other comments
The lessons were monotonous and lacked variety. Oral practice was minimal and the teaching was conventional. The classes were too large (11 - !2 students). The classrooms did not have air conditioning, and Bordeaux was hot in the summer.

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 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!
