Students liked about CAREL, Royan
"Interaction with other students from different countries; excellent teaching from highly competent and enthusiastic teacher." - (60 years)
"The organization was very good" - (38 years)
"Very good choice of books and movies" - (33 years)
"Experienced teachers, mediateques (you can see french movies with sub titles, there are many work books or audio text which you can use free of charge). In this school you can have a contact not only with foreign students who learn French but also French students who learn English, Spanish and German. It's something very unique of this school. You have many chance to speak in French with ordinary French people. (not only teachers or somebody who works in the shops) " - (31 years)
"My teacher was very young, dynamic and intelligent, the classes were really interesting." -
