Bordeaux ist absolut zu empfehlen - tolle Museen Schule ist sofort auf meinen Wunsch eingegangen, mehr Grammatik zu üben. Sehr nette Staff - viel gelernt! Der Kontakt mit der Familie wurde von Tag zu Tag besser, beschränkte sich aber auf die Zeit des Abendessens. Gastherr kochte sehr gut! Zu Beginn des Aufenthals gab es eine Stadtrundfahrt mit dem Gastehepaar und auch bei der Abreise wurde ich mit dem Auto zum Bus gebracht. Mit einem Bad für alle wurde es in der Früh recht knapp - war für mich aber kein Problem. Wirklich empfehlenswert!

Testimonials
Alberto De Leon
Alberto De Leon
France Langue, Bordeaux
Duration: 20 weeks

First day at school: I was satisfied to receive all the information before my arrival in France. I had contacted my host family a week before and was welcomed by them. They helped me to find the easiest way to reach our school on my first day. Everything was fine on the first day at school, from the information meeting until the end of the first lessons. During my stay: I have been able to add extra courses for a few weeks to work on specific needs (writing skills). Regarding the accommodation, I decided to stay the whole time with the same family. End of my studies: I am currently thinking of staying a little bit longer in the courses and with the family. The head teacher is looking for a group level in which I could stay and improve my language skills. Life in Bordeaux: I had heard of Bordeaux due to the wine industry but I really discovered the city once in France. I took time after classes and on weekends to visit around the city but also the region.

The staff were fantastic, and paid particular attention to my request for emphasis on spoken rather than written French. They were charming, helpful and delightful 'professeurs'. I loved every moment of my course, and gained in confidence every day. My host family was perfect, one was a retired English teacher, the other a retired French teacher. They never used their knowledge to interfere with my spoken French. I gained confidence enormously. I am now quite comfortable conversing with strangers on almost any subject, although I know I do make mistakes.
