Student opinions about International House, Nice

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.
Liked
I liked the small classroom size and the multi-national background of the students. Although many of them had been studying together for weeks, I was immediately accepted into the group. I felt that my placement into the B1 group was appropriate for my skill level. I was only enrolled for one week, but at the end of the felt that my oral comprehension had definitely improved. I will definitely re-enrol when my travels next take me to Nice.

Quality of teaching / language progress: The school is just great! A lot of students from different parts of the world, amazing teachers and most importantly, there is a super school director who speaks pretty good Russian xD Classes are held either early in the morning or after lunch. The school seems to have 8 classes and they are all of different sizes. Some classes are spacious and comfortable but there are tiny rooms where it is very difficult to move. Nobody speaks Russian at the reception, although there was a Russian-speaking guy there the first week, though then he disappeared somewhere ...

I was disappointed that my initial email of introduction was not sent to the host family and so they didn't know when I was supposed to arrive etc. Living in Kenya, it was the only way to communicate AND the school said they would have passed the info along since the family was not on the internet.
