What our students said about Paris

Rating: 5/5

5.0

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.

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.

Nothing bad to say about beautiful Paris! It's such a delightful city, and the school is wonderfully located, with easy access to everywhere. So many terrific museums, parks, historic places, the opera houses, shops, etc.

It is a lovely city but they have to figure out a way to keep it clean...it is not much fun to walk through vomit and urine smell in the mornings!!!

The weather was very hot, which is not unusual, but particularly if one is an American. One must be prepared for the lack of air conditioning.

Karine was a dedicated teacher. She was pleasant and responded all our requests.
School should renovate its bathrooms. They stink and are filthy. They are out of order every other day! The water pipes leak.

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.

The building needs a handyman :o). It felt a bit tired.

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.
