Very friendly team and teachers. Incredible atmosphere. High quality of education, creative approach to the learning process (my progress unexpectedly was very high). Excellent opportunities for communication. Different and interesting activity. I have the most pleasant memories about this school.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Take coffee in "Green Coffee" on Place Édouard Adam. Get out to the sea by free Hérault buses. Walk a lot. Really a lot. Go to bars on Friday nights. Don't forget to buy food on Friday - because on the weekends all shops and markets are closed. But there are different programs in museums on those days.

It is rather cheap school and it's so comfortable and fun to learn in it.

As someone who teaches (astronomy and physics), I thought the teaching was outstanding. Both Severine and Emmanuel where excellent. Emmanuel went a bit fast, but his enthusiasm was great.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Not really.
Other comments
I have only two complaints. One was that the building I was in the morning classes of the first week was under remodeling and a disaster area. I was happy this was dealt with the next week. And I also wish there was more power for the professers to move people in and out of class. For the 2 week, my morning class was outstanding. The afternoon class had some students that were not interested in learning. It was a shame.

The teaching facilities were moved during the second week. I did not like that. The conflict resolution with the management of the school on the other hand was positive. So, one bad remark and one praise.

In order to eat I had to go to the restaurant and food was pretty much always the same. You can only choose between a main dish and a dessert or main dish and a drink. The pancake shop was nice but they only had pancakes. The other restaurant which was listed was annualy close, they could have adviced another one. It embarrased me. The residence service should always be opened.
