Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If you only are going for a few weeks, be aware that you will be entering a class that has already been in progress, with students who may or may not have been there for awhile. It didn't cause any problems, the teachers were very accommodating if they were in the middle of a unit when I arrived.

I was able to obtain an OPUS card (bus) at the student pricing thanks to the student card BLI provided. The "5 a 7"s were a great time and opportunity to meet fellow students in a relaxed atmosphere outside of the school and also a good opportunity to practice the French we

Location within Vieux Québec (the old city). The staff were amiable, supportive and helpful.
Other comments:
I chose an intensive week-long private programme and there was a little confusion at the beginning (I was put in a group). I think this type of learning process may be a bit unusual and if/when I return, I would do things a bit differently - i.e. I would be a bit more direct (possibly in advance) about my goals. Overall, it was a good experience.

I went over the Christmas break, which had the advantage of being quiet (so I got more time with the teachers), but it was socially a bit too quiet. No complaints, but in future I would probably go at another time of year.

It is a pity that the school does not offer any leisure activities. In addition, you hardly meet the other students at the school since each class has lessons at a different time and the breaks are not at the same time either. Private lessons were great.

Very useful for those seriously dedicated to learning French in Canada. Somewhat business-like atmosphere for those wanting a language vacation.

It is really annoying you can't pay with creditcard. European countries are way past the stage of cheques, so I had to pay 8 weeks in cash! (The ATM only gives 20$ bills)

Ask for a homestay within 3km of the school. Some students live an hour away by bus, making it difficult to get home after a late night out.
Other comments:
The classrooms are small for the number of students. Also the classes are often full in the summer time. You also don't know whether your class is in the morning or in afternoon until the previous Friday. This makes planning your week a bit difficult. Besides that, it's a great school, I had lot of fun, and can't wait to return!

I was tremendously happy with my choice of going to Bouchereau. It was centrally located, the teachers were delightful, there were many fantastic international students (most of the students were from Switzerland and Colombia... that was sort of weird), and the host family that I was allotted to live with, couldn't have been more perfectly selected to suit my personality. Thanks a bunch!
