Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The tour of Vichy was very well delivered and it made me like the city even more.
Other comments: In the morning class, Margo is very dynamic and fun but I felt like there was a lot of speaking which we already get in the afternoon classes. But I was only there for a week so maybe it's different week to week. I had a very informative week and the content I learned in the mornings was new to me, e.g. social security in France, the French education system. I wish I could have stayed longer!
