What students liked about LSI - Language Studies International, Paris
Even though there were 10 students in my class, my teacher controlled the class very well and we could participated in a lesson very actively. A coordinator could help me well during my stay. As the school is located in a business district, you can enjoy shopping and sightseeing. You also felt to be a "Pariseienne".

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I recommend you to go over the conjugation of verbs before taking a level check test.
Other comments: There are only two toilets in the school. As there're many cafeterias around the school, most of the students go out for a coffee during a break and get relaxed.
I like how the teacher helped me to speak using French, although i only knew several words. Teacher (Marice) was enthusiastic about her teaching. I loved the class size also. It was not big so there was enough time to ask questions and enought time for each student to practice speaking French.

Dedicated and committed hardworking teachers who were interested in teaching and having us learn. Serious attitude of school with weekly Monday morning tests to evaluate the progress in terms of materials previously covered in class. Punctuality and attendance were emphasized.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: There were only 2 other Americans besides myself in the 4 weeks I attended. The first class had 8 students. The second class for two weeks was a combination of two different classes by the school and had 16 students. It was way to large and there were very different levels among the individual students. All but one in this very large class were female. In the fourth week, the class had about 10-12 students in it - all female. Most students were young college age 20-somethings. A few of us were in our 40s-50s-60s. Many of the young female students appeared to be from wealthy and privileged backgrounds and circumstances.
Other comments: It's a very international school and they are serious about their mission of teaching French to foreigners and getting their students ready to take the required national exams which the French government requires for foreigners who want to work in France. I also took private lessons in afternoon which helped me greatly in terms of conversation.
The availability of my teacher-Vanessa- and generally of all the school-s staff. It is not easy to deal with people who know nothing of French - my level was débutant, A1 - but patience and knowledge of the teacher allowed me to dramatically improve my level of French.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Structured very well, of course, you must want to learn.
Excellent location. Classes started right on time. I was placed in the right level, with some students above me, and some below me, but all of us at more or less the same level. Very friendly school, very easy to talk with Daniel if there were any issues.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Join the Tuesday afternoon excursions with other classmates. A good way to meet people and make friends. The Centre Pompidou is right next door and has a fantastic library (closed Tuesday), where you can study. It's open until 11 p.m. Bring a notebook and different coloured pens, also pencils. There are little cafés very near the school, so getting a snack during the morning break is easy.
Other comments: The chairs don't provide much space on the tiny attached desk. Would prefer a real desk. The class level got increasingly more difficult each Monday when new students joined. I started at level A1, and the class jumped to level A2 after just two weeks. I could handle the grammar alright, but I needed more intensive work on very basic level French verbs, vocabulary, and pronunciation.

    FAQ about LSI - Language Studies International, Paris

  • The school will match your request to a suitable host family, so it is important that you mention in the comment field of your booking if you have any specific requests for the family. All the hosts are monitored by the school, so you can be sure that they will be welcoming and everything will be clean. When you stay with French hosts you get to sample the local culture and customs, and they can often offer you advice on what to do in the local area. It is a distinct advantage to be able to practice the language in the evenings, around the dinner table if you book half board (breakfast and dinner).
