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)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Royan is a very small town, so it's a bit boring town but for those who want to improve his capacity of French, it's one of the best locations. You must not miss the party at Pub Astoria on the first Tuesday.
Other comments: In the beginning, I chose 4 weeks. But I found this school being so good that I extended my cours. There was another Spanish girl who did the same extention. Information for Japanese student: There were not many Japanese student in this school when I was here. (Only 4 students) If you look for a school where there are not too many japanese students, it might be a very good choice. There is a chance to introduce our culture to other students, so it is very nice idea to bring something (photobook, food) to show.
