If you are interested in hiking over the weekend (2-3 days hikes) on trails in the national forest parks nearby, you need an Uber/taxi ride or an own car. Public transport doesn´t work.

The faculty was enthusiastic, engaged and very interested in their students' progress. Vivian and Nathalie also took a keen interest in the students, not only in terms of their progress in French, but also their living arrangements, enjoyment of the city, exposure to culture, etc. A very well-run program.
Good location, nice facilities, well-conceived curriculum for a school that receives new students on a weekly basis.

The staff were friendly and helpful; class was a lot of fun (of course a bit overwhelming at first) and my teacher did a great job making us feel at ease and encouraging us. I was able to obtain an OPUS card (bus) at the student pricing thanks to the student card BLI provided. The "5 a 7"s were a great time and opportunity to meet fellow students in a relaxed atmosphere outside of the school and also a good opportunity to practice the French we
Great resource to use when trying to pick up a new language in a foreign city!

Good location.
I went over the Christmas break, which had the advantage of being quiet (so I got more time with the teachers), but it was socially a bit too quiet. No complaints, but in future I would probably go at another time of year.
