For a foreign person who is in a strange place...

For a foreign person who is in a strange place for the first time, a good orientation is always needed, which the school does not provide. It is impossible to enjoy museums, restaurants, nightlife and other important things when nobody explains them to you. You do not know if your life may be in danger because you do not know where you are when you walk or take public transport.

Paris is not a clean city and public transportation...

Paris is not a clean city and public transportation is not reliable. People are not so friendly on the surface but once they know you they can be very friendly and helpful. Everything is expensive and customer service is not so good. Having said that, this is my 6th time visiting this city and if I didn't like it, I wouldn't have come back here so often. So this city is somewhat attractive but I don't know why. I have to come back here to find out.

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.
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.

The teachers are excellent and provided different activities to keep students engaged.
Cons: There was no wireless internet available for the entire month of August. Just before leaving for France, I was asked to provide proof of my payment to the school as they could not find it. After I had wired the money to the school, I emailed a request that they confirmed that they received the money. I received a response that they had, indeed, received the money. So it was disconcerting to be asked to provide proof of payment. I understand that ownership has changed and this has caused some transition difficulties.

When I read the description of the school, it said that the average age of the students are 27 year old or something. I am 40, so I thought I wouldn't be able to make friends at school but I met students youngest 17 year old and oldest 62 year old. I made lots of friends there and teachers and admin staffs were all very very friendly.
The school is surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and shops which sell food. You can enjoy so many kinds of food there.

Brenda was an excellent instructor. She kept pace with the course materials. The reception staff was accommodating.
The course material was more intense than I experienced in a 6-week course at my home university. I walked away with an overload of vocabulary, grammar and verb conjugations. Excellent overall. I still have pronunciation issues, but I'm planning on coming back in April.

Overall I was disappointed with my experience at Atelier 9, but first let me begin with the good things: The school is very casual and informal, which makes for a relaxed and social learning environment. All of the teachers I encountered were nice and friendly, and the location of the school is also very easy to reach from most parts of Paris. However, I found the learning environment to be far too casual. In two weeks I felt that I barely improved at all. A lot of time is wasted on long and drawn out exercises and games that aren't particularly effective. I understand that many other students appreciate this casual environment but I went to Atelier 9 to improve my French as much as possible and sadly this was not the case.

I highly recommend France Langue Paris Notre Dame if you are planning to study French in Paris. The organisation and administration of the school is fantastic. I was only doing a one week course and yet all of my questions and requests were dealt with quickly. I managed to change classes 3 times in just one week and every teacher I had was kind and friendly but also very professional and effective.
