Der DALF Vorbereitungskurs an zwei Nachmittagen in der Woche war sehr gut, da habe ich auch viel gelernt. Der Lehrer war sehr engagiert.Ansonsten kann ich das Kursmaterial nicht wirklich beurteilen, da es für mich zu einfach war. Die Ausflüge nach New York und Ottawa waren sehr spannend und toll, aber etwas überteuert...Das nächste Mal würde ich diese Ausflüge selber organisieren, das käme billiger...

Zu Ende meines Sprachaufenthaltes vergrösserte sich die Klassengrösse und teilweise waren die auserwählten Klassenzimmer eher zu klein. Die Qualität des Unterrichts kam sehr auf den Lehrer an. Ich finde jedoch, dass der DELF-Vorbereitungskurs Verbesserungspotenzial hätte.
