Student opinions about Les ateliers FL, Lyon

Liked
The lively and engaging lessons, very suitable also for students with less knowledge of the French language. Above all, speaking was practised. Grammar was not neglected either. There was a cheerful atmosphere, which was certainly also due to the teacher's positive charisma. I liked it very much
Disliked
None that I have noticed
