Die Schule ist überraschend gut - auch medial -ausgestattet und professionell geführt, das Lehrpersonal ist sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Da der Altersdurchschnitt der Studenten bei 24 liegt, fühlte ich mich mit Ü50 etwas deplatziert.

Für einige war der Kurs zu langsam. Die Lehrpersonen hatten jedoch teilweise Mühe flexibel Dinge anzupassen und auf die Gruppe abzustimmen. Teilweise sehr teuer, Begleitpersonen wussten selbst nicht wirklich über den Ort Bescheid, so dass der Buschauffeur die Tour geleitet hat.

Alles war mit Internet Google Drive. Leider war das Netz oft überlastet und man musste lange warten bis man starten konnte. Manchmal ging auch gar nichts mehr. War aber auf grund der vielen Studenten so. Die Idee sonst wäre superEin klassen Saal war gleichzeitig die Kantine.. Wenn da alle Ihr essen wärmten, roch es danach extrem streng..Überproportional viele Schweizer Unterrichtsmethode war gut aber wie schon gesagt gab es immer Probleme mit dem Google Drive.Lehrkräfte waren sehr gut bis auf zwei.

« Mein Französisch war wirklich schlecht am Anfang. Verstanden habe ich fast nichts aufgrund der Geschwindigkeit und des fehlenden Wortschatzes. Aber am Schluss konnte ich mich über Gott und die Welt unterhalten. Zwar mit vielen Fehlern aber die Leute haben mich verstanden. Ich habe aus dem Unterricht viel mitgenommen und habe mich bei den Lehrern erkundigt was ich im Selbststudium lernen kann um gewisse Lucken zu schliessen. Auch die Gastfamilie hat mich unterstützt und immer integriert. So war ich gezwungen zu lernen. Auch habe ich mich fast nur mit Leuten abgegeben die kein Deutsch reden. »
School highlights
« In der Schule wurde Wert darauf gelegt dass die Studenten in der Klasse sich auch untereinander kennenlernen. So war es wirklich einfach neue Leute kennenzulernen und etwas zu unternehmen. »

- viele nette Leute getroffen- Rouen ist eine sehr schöne Stadt- motivierte Lehrpersonen an der Schule- interessante Unterrichtsinhalte - anders als erwartet sehr viele Schweizer...(lag vielleicht auch am Niveau B2/C1) - gute Atmosphäre, angenehme Stimmung in der Gruppe- alles Material online (über Google Drive)-> daher wichtig, dass man den Laptop mitnimmt!Ohne Laptop ist es schwierig, denn man schreibt teilweise auch direkt auf dem Drive.- da alles online ist, kann man auch von zu Hause auf die Materialien zugreifen- wer noch keine gmail-Adresse hat, muss eine erstellen, damit man das Material bekommt- trotzdem wäre es gut gewesen, einige (v.a. Grammatik-)Themen auf Papier zu bekommen- im Unterricht viel gesprochen, das fand ich sehr gut - hatte Studio mit Bad und kleiner Küche- es war einfach, aber sauber und angenehm- ziemlich ringhörig-Frühstücksbuffet: guter Kaffee, gutes Baguette, Corn Flakes und JoghurtFrüchte immer etwa die gleichen, nicht immer so frisch- Kontakte zu anderen Studierenden in der Residenz hatte ich nicht, da es keinen wirklichen gemeinsamen Raum gab. Das fand ich aber kein Problem.
