I absolutely love this city! History is all around you! It's small and medieval, there are city walls and it feels like you are in a fairy-tale.

The good teachers
The school and the teachers are fine, I was happy about this. The problems were about the family who hosted me... they are good person but were cheapskates (they never cooked me any fish or steak during my 4 week stay there.) The temperatures at times were cold in the house, and they cooked me potatoes 85% of the time. It seemed they hosted people just for money and not for passion.

The location in the city.
Concerning the advanced level, this is a rather low-cost school. There is a good price-quality ratio, nonetheless, a student will not be able to progress easily. You will have to cope with your level on your own. For instance, I did not read any difficult articles from a newspaper or an interview/video on YouTube. This is a pity.

small group (10 students), no French in my group, mix of nationalities, 1:1 lessons with Paula were very profitable and made me progress a lot
A big problem regarding host family accomodation : I called the family the day before departure, and I discovered that she could not host me and that she had warned the school. Fortunately the person I contacted on the emergency number solved the pb. But it is a bad surprise the evening before departure. Especially as I was not as close to the school as before. Moreover the school's address was not good: I've discovered this upon arrival. The new family was very friendly and caring but the house was not clean
