Katherine: "I was in Hadrian's class at first, then I switched to Annika's. While I was only with Hadrian a short time, he was very encouraging and pleasant, with a good sense of humour. Annika was the instructor I was with the for the rest of the classes. She really knows her grammar and was very strong in her explaining of idiomatic expressions and Parisian culture. She also had a good sense of humour. I would suggest this school to anyone wishing to learn French or improve their French. The small classes force you to speak up in French, which is, of course, the whole point."

Jessie : "I took the semi-intensive course for a month and I have mixed reviews about it. I really enjoyed the class, but I have to say there is no syllabus provided at all. You just come there and you don't even know what you will be learning for the day. On my first week, we were learning about COD and COI. I didn't have any issues with it, but it could have been very helpful if we have been given the syllabus for the week in order for us to be ready for the class - it's for students who want to take the initiative and have a better learning experience. Different teachers have different teaching approaches here. I have to raise my concern here that although I believe the classes are great, some teachers will really stick to their methods. My previous classmate has anxiety issues, she does really well in class, however, when asked to standup in front of the class to present, she would have difficulties managing it. The first time it happened, she couldn't handle it and stepped out of the class whilst presenting. When she left, I then told the teacher that she has issues when presenting in front of a group, but well, he still insisted in carrying out his "public speaking" method. Some of my classmates including myself were very disappointed with this as the class is for language learning and not for public speaking. So, if you have any issues with public speaking, maybe you should raise this to the teacher from the very beginning. I wasn't able to join the activities after class, so I couldn't really comment on that. "
