Other comments
They might have more social activities for slightly older people - but then, maybe they don't get many of those. There is a tendency for homestays not to offer particularly nice food, but then, the charge is relatively low so this isn't too much of an issue.

If the level is getting too easy make sure you let them know
Other comments
They merged my class with a lower class and the level became very easy. After a week when it returned to the correct level it was still a lot lower than it had been previously. I felt that I wasted two weeks learning things I had already learnt and therefore went up a class when I felt I wasn't ready. I recommend that the school monitor people's levels more and inform the classes they have the options to go higher if they are going to merge classes.

Don't be shy to express your requests and wishes to the staff. Try to practice your speaking skills as much as you can. Choose accommodation close to the school.

The course duration should be not less than 2 weeks, the first week is mainly to adapt and determine the optimal level. I would implement the mandatory homework. In general, I liked everything very much!

Other comments
The library has some lacks. More computer would have been needed in the main social room. Also the social activities are quite horrible and poorly orchestrated. But aside from that, the teachers and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. I would suggest to take the afternoon classes since they are the most beneficial for those who are seriously interested in improving their French. If you are unhappy wiht your host family, I would suggest putting in a request for a change as soon as possible. Mine was not very pleasant but most of the students I spoke with had very nice families.

If you are traveling by bus to school (and it is easy to do) get a bus pass from the SunBoutiaues. It is easy and much cheaper.

It had a truly international population for students and the teachers were very competent and encouraging while using humor to set us at ease.
