Da es nur einen einzigen Kurs gab, war ich in einer Klasse, die eigentlich zu gut für mich war. Ich musste viel im Selbststudium an eignen.Der Unterricht an sich war gut strukturiert. Die Lehrerinnen gaben wirklich ihr Bestes. Da das Programm jedoch straff ist, ist wenig Möglichkeit für individuelle Maßnahmen.Ich war eindeutig die Exotin in der Gruppe. Dreimal so alt, und dann noch aus Deutschland.Die Stimmung unter den jungen Belgiern war gut, was auch in Lautstärke und Unruhe in der Klasse zu spüren war. Sie sprachen auch in der Klasse ausschließlich französisch miteinander. Mir ist deutlich geworden, dass Sprachkurse in der Gruppe von älteren Leuten eher nicht gebucht werden. Schade! Da würde ich mir einen besser zugeschnittenes Angebot wünschen.

Zu Beginn 1- 2 Deutschsprachige, sonst alleine Französischsprachig, was auch in den Pausen, zum Teil in den Klassen und in der Freizeit gesprochen wurde.Richtig toll engagierte Lehrkräfte, die das Beste aus jedem herausholen wollen! Absolut hervorragende Umgebung und eine fantastische Familie. Ich fühlte mich vom ersten Tag weg wie zuhause. Ganz toller Kontakt zur Familie, Familienmitglieder, Nachbarn und Freunde der Familie. Intensiver Austausch und Kommunikation um die Sprache zu lernen......Ein riesengrosses MERCI!!!! Tolle Eindrücke in der Umgebung gewinnen können.

Host family
Staying with a local host family is the smartest option if you want to fully experience Dutch culture. The families are carefully selected by our partner school and live close to its premises (an average of 10-30 minutes away by bike). You will stay in a single room and receive full board every day. Families only host one student at a time. The half-board option is available for 8-week minimum stays.

The province of North Brabant offers all types of activities: enjoy its dynamic cities, explore its surroundings, have fun at its leisure parks and learn more about the local culture at its many museums. Go to ‘s-Hertogenbosch – which is just 15 minutes away from Vught – to visit its beautiful medieval part and its Gothic cathedral. In Breda, you can walk through lovely gardens, go shopping or admire its Renaissance castle. Eindhoven, the largest city in the province, is perfect to discover with friends – both day and night! To finish on a sweet note, don’t forget to taste the “bossche bol”, a giant profiterole stuffed with whipped cream.
