The lessons are 2.30 hours per day if you pay for a standard course (20hours/week) so it's not enough if you want to learn more

request for Jean Christophe, he is the best teacher there
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.

The courses were very "personal" with a lot of conversation. The teachers had many ideas, like a class about wine with a tasting, or watching a film and speaking about it.
