Die Klassenzimmer sind mit wackeligen Plastikstühlen mit seitigem ausführbarem Schreibunterlage ausgestattet, was nicht wirklich bequem ist. Zudem ziehen die Klimaanlagen den ganzen Tag.Die Klassen haben meiner Meinung nach zu viele Schweizer/Schweizerinnen, deshalb ist die Gefahr gross um nicht die Fremdsprache zu sprechen.Das ganze Personal inkl. Direktion ist sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich, wenn man Auskünfte benötigt, sind sie immer zur Stelle. :-) Die Nationalitäten sind leider nicht so verschieden wie ich mir dies erhofft habe... es hatte in meiner Klasse sehr viele aus Deutschland oder der Schweiz, da wir alle das selbe Niveau hatten und die Schulsysteme eher gleich sind als zum Beispiel Brasilien. Sehr gut gelegen! Waschmaschine im Haus. Die Zimmer sind gross und man hat alles, was man benötigt. Leider war der Kühlschrank bei mir sooooo laut, dass er zu explodieren drohte und man aus dem Schlaf geweckt wurde. Bei meiner Ankunft war leider kein Personal vor Ort. Ich erhielt eine Box (leider fehlten einige Sachen anhand der beigelegten Liste) und mir war kalt, da ich keine Bettdecke hatte. Vielleicht ist dies der Standard in Québec, nur leider konnte ich niemanden fragen. Ich hätte mir grössere Touren (auch Wochenenden) erhofft.

« Ja, ich habe mich weiterentwickelt was das Selbstbewusstsein des Sprechens angeht. Da ich viel in der Stadt unterwegs war und viele Gespräche mitgehört habe, konnte ich sehr viel aufnehmen. In der Schule war es für mich eher schwierig, da wie schon erwähnt, viele deutschsprachige teilgenommen haben oder aber viele in Englisch kommunizierten. »

Schulzimmer waren zu klein und schlecht belüftet. Im einen Zimmer war es (wegen der Klimaanlage) sehr kalt. In einem anderen Zimmer (ohne Fenster) wurde die Luft sehr schnell schlecht, weil keine Belüftung möglich war. Das wurde auch vom jeweiligen Lehrpersonal bestätigt.

Super! Schule & Gastfamilien waren sehr zufriedenstellend - alles hat wie am Schnürchen geklappt. Natürlich sind auch das Land Kanada bzw. Québec an sich sehr eindrucksvoll Standort sowie das Preisleistungsverhältnis sind sehr gutDie Klassenzimmer an sich sind völlig in Ordnung. Vereinzelt könnte die Klimaanlage einen Ticken leiser sein.Die CDs mit den Höhrübungen haben eher selten funktioniert Den Unterricht als auch den Kontakt mit dem Lehrpersonal empfand ich als sehr gut. Sehr angenehm/Kollegial und trotzdem wurde der Inhalt gut vermittelt

Québec ist eine schöne ruhige Stadt. Leider gibt es nicht sooo viel zu unternehmen, dennoch kann man gut ein Wochenende in einem nahelegenden Nationalpark verbringen. Für den Ausgang ist Québec nicht so geeignet. War von 12 Wochen, 10 Wochen mit Schweizer in der gleichen Klasse und auch immer mit sicher 2 Latin-Amerikaner. Daher war der Nationalitäten-Mix nicht so stark.

« Ja, jetzt kann ich eine Konversation auf französisch führen, welches ich zu Beginn sehr mühe gehabt habe. Die Grammatik, welche wir in der Schule gelernt habe, haben mir geholfen. »
School highlights
« Manche Lehrer waren sehr aufgestellt und man hat gemerkt, dass es ihre Leidenschaft ist. Sie haben uns sehr gerne unterrichtet und der Unterricht hat so auch sehr viel Spass gemacht. Was mir auch gefallen hat, ist dass wir am Freitag, für den Conversation-Unterricht, alle zusammen in ein Kaffee oder Park gegangen sind und uns mit allen, von jedem Niveau, unterhalten konnten. »

Kanada ist wahnsinnig toll für Touristen: überall gibt es Info-Stellen, die Menschen sind auch sehr hilfsbereit und offen Kleine, sehr familiäre Schule. Fühlte mich aufgehoben und willkommen. Das Personal ist kompetent und stehen jederzeit zur Verfügung. Einzig die Infrastruktur ist eher spärlich. Viele Schweizer, weshalb auch oft Deutsch gesprochen wird Busverbindung benötigt je nach Uhrzeit eher lang. Nur 3x pro Tag fährt ein Expressbus (20 Minuten bis zur Schule) Trotzdem war es ein gelungener Aufenthalt. Die Gastmutter ist extrem offen und flexibel. Eignet sich super für Personen, die auch gerne etwas alleine oder mit anderen aus der Schule unternehmen. Die Gastmutter hat mir meine Freiräume gelassen, aber auch extra Sachen organisiert, die für mich alleine nicht erreichbar gewesen wären. Da sie selber arbeitet, ist sie nicht so oft zu Hause und deshalb für jemand, der intensiven Kontakt sucht nicht optimal. Für mich aber alles in allem: Top!

Host family
The school has a good network of families chosen with care, living around 40 minutes by bus from the school. You will stay in a single room with half board and will have the opportunity to put the French language that you will have learned during classes into practice. The legendary friendliness of the Québecois will allow you to have a very enriching human and linguistic experience.

In Quebec, you will be able to undertake numerous activities, including walks in the Montmorency Falls Park, jogging along the Promenade Samuel de Champlain, a boat crossing on the Saint Lawrence river, shopping in the large "malls" of the capital...In addition to this, every Thursday evening, the school organises a "happy hour" in order that the students may get to know each other in a convivial and relaxed atmosphere.
