Noch sind mir die Menschen an einem Ort so überaus nett und offen begegnet wie dort. An manchen Orten kam man sich vor wie in einer kleinen Stadt und dann wiederum in einem wunderschönen Ort der auch ruhig sein kann. Die Atmosphäre war egal wo und egal wann, ob regen oder Sonne, immer herzlich und entspannt.

Nyrenoverade och fräscha lokaler men det ekar kraftigt i klassrummen så svårt att höra. Wi-fi funkade inte. Ostrukturerat, mest fyllde vi i olika kopierade blad. Minimalt med konversationsträning och hörförståelse. Lärarna kunde inte bedöma gruppens nivå och grammatiken var i en grupp löjligt låg. Jag gick byta grupp två gånger på fem dagar. Hade först önskat franska och golf med boende i familj och halvpension v30. Fick sen samtal om att det inte fanns golf v30 men däremot v27. När jag sen önskade bokao visade det sig att det inte fanns golf så jag blev erbjuden surf istället. Jag bokade då det och fick bekräftat att jag fått plats. Efter ett kort tag blev jag uppringd med besked om att det inte fanns plats i familj så jag istället behövde boka Airbnb. Eftersom jag då redan bokat flyg så blev jag tvungen att göra så, vilket bör betydligt dyrare! Har varit jättenöjd med en resa och inte särskilt nöjd med den andra. Däremot har ESLs personal varit väldigt trevliga att ha att göra med varje gång och jag gillar att man går uppföljning på tfn.

Top tips
« Första dagen börjar tidigare, det står info om det på en helt annan plats än på info om skoltiderna. Jag missade detta. Om man surfar ska man räkna med att 1) ta sig surfskolan själv, t ex med buss 2) surflektionerna kan vara på kvällstid eftersom klassen anpassas efter tidvattnet. »

Host family
The families are carefully selected by the school and generally live around 25 minutes by public transport away from the language school building. They welcome students in single or double rooms with half board during the week and full board at weekends provided. This accommodation option is ideal for getting a taste of French hospitality, for immersing yourself in the culture and for practising the language in an authentic environment.

It is recommended to arrive to the family house after 6pm on Sundays. For arrivals before 6pm, you must inform your host family at least a week before your trip. For arrivals before 2 PM, an early check-in fee will be charged.

Les Sourcettes studio
Our partner school offers accommodation in a private studio located next to the school building. This modern and comfortable flat for single occupancy includes a private bathroom and a kitchenette. It is located just steps from shops, services and leisure facilities. Guests can take advantage of the swimming pool (June to September) and free parking space offered by the school. This is ideal for surfers, who can leave their board in the car after returning form the beach! Bedlinen and bath towels are provided and changed every Saturday, during weekly housekeeping. Coin-operated laundry facilities are available on site.
