« Ja ich denke ich habe Fortschritte erzielt. Vor allem beim Sprechen und Verstehen. Allerdings ist dies sicherlich auch damti verbunden, dass ich in der Freizeit während meines Sprachaufenthaltes sehr viel Englisch gesprochen habe und kein einziges Mal Deutsch. »

« Das Freizeitangebot der Schule hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Ebenfalls konnte man mit allen Problemen zu den Verantwortlichen der Schule gehen, egal ob es mit der Schule zu tun hatte oder nicht. Das Personal war super nett und hilfsbereit. »

Le fait d'être presque le seul européen était tres enrichissant pour moi. Mais j'aurais beaucoup aimé rencontrer plus de gens partageant la MM culture....une majorité d'arabes-musulmans n'est pas pas vrmt le profil type pour faire la fête et aller à la rencontre des américains ! Cependant l'ambiance était excellente.

Testimonials
Diane Lamy
Diane Lamy

The classes seem long when you see the schedule but it goes by very quickly because the teachers use interactive - yet not childish – methods! There are few French students, which is a bad and a good point! A bad point, because some languages, like Korean, are well represented and I sometimes feel a little lonely. But it is a good point too because everyone is very welcoming and it forces me to speak English all the time. Washington is a huge city and even after spending 1 month and a half here, I discovered some new places! It is quite easy to find your way through the city; anyway, in Washington (like in New York, which I also visited), when people see you are lost, they come to help you!
