The class I was in was very small with three people, which made for a great learning atmosphere. (I think I was lucky in this respect, as not many students had signed up for the beginners' course during that period).

Most of the teachers are very good and encourage you to participate and talk which is what it is about.
There aren't really any extracurricular activities which would allow students to get to know each other better and to talk a bit outside the school. I did not like that they took us to the bookstore to buy a book that was expensive, considering what it is used for, and only for two weeks.

I really appreciated the level of lessons, the experience of the teacher. The city is ideal for taking a class. Value for money very correct.
What annoyed me a bit, but France Langue can't do anything about it, was that there was a big difference between my age and the age of the other students.

It would be much better if you accepted credit card payments through the website rather than asking people to email their credit card details.
