Le séjour s'est super bien déroulé. Tout était organisé et expliqué à la perfection !!Freiburg est une très belle ville avec beaucoup de choses autour à visiter ou voir. Cependant, c'est une toute petite ville. C'est pourquoi je pense que cette ville convient pour de petits séjours, comme le mien. Pour les grands séjour peut-être choisir une ville dans le même genre mais un poil plus grande. Autrement, c'est vraiment une ville coup de coeur !!!! J'ai débuté dans un cours B1.1 alors que j'avais un niveau plus élevé. La matière enseignée était connue et comprise. J'ai dû insister à plusieurs reprises pour que l'on me monte de niveau. L'ambiance de la classe était bonne, c'était juste dommage que certaines personnes parlent dans leur langue maternelle et ne fassent aucun effort pendant le cours. Autrement, le reste de la classe était très motivé et social ! Il était facile de créer le contact dans l'école. De plus, l'école proposait pleins d'activités hors cours à faire, c'était vraiment TOP ! En ce qui concerne la méthode d'enseignement je trouve qu'elle n'était pas top. En tout cas avec mon enseignant, il corrigeait rarement les exercices en entier, il passait sur pas mal de sujets sans les aborder et il s'éparpillait un peu dans tous les sens, de plus il ne nous annonçait jamais correctement ce qui allait figurer dans les tests du vendredi matin. Concernant le matériel de cours, rien à dire ! Tout était top, nous avons reçu un classeur avec des feuilles un stylo et des livres inclus dans le prix du séjour. Juste PARFAIT ! Le dynamisme des professeurs est bon. Personnelement, j'ai eu des cours privés. La premières enseignante était juste géniale, très à l'écoute de mes besoins et envies. Elle me préparait le matériel que j'avais besoin. Ensuite j'ai eu un autre enseignant et par contre lui, très sympa, mais il écoutait beaucoup moins mes demandes. Je lui ai notamment demandé des exemples d'exercices, il a pris une semaine à m'en préparer. En sachant que je restais uniquement 4 semaines, cela faisait court. Concernant les groupes standards : nous avions deux enseignants. Le premier était dynamique mais s'attardait beaucoup sur de petites choses pas très utiles et pour les notions de grammaires et autre il allait bcp plus vite. De plus, nous avons demandé d'accélérer un peu le cours car nous comprenions bien mais il n'a pas écouté notre demande. En ce qui concerne le professeur du jeudi et vendredi sa méthode d'enseignement, son écoute et son contact étaient génial !! Il montrait de la disponibilité et de l'intérêt pour ce que nous disions ! C'était très agréable. Famille INCROYABLE ! Ils étaient tous très très très sympas !!! Nous dînions tous les soirs ensembles, nous discutions et ensuite nous regardions des programmes télévisés allemands. Ils étaient très à l'écoute, ils m'aidaient à faire mes devoirs et m'encourageaient à parler. En ce qui concerne la maison et la chambre tout était IMPECCABLE ! Grande chambre avec de grands velux, beaucoup d'espace. La salle de bain rénovée, juste géniale. Les repas étaient différents chaque soir, ils étaient fais maisons et tout ce que je peux dire c'est que dans cette maison nous ne mourrons jamais de faim ! La mère nous sert à notre faim comme dans un restaurant. Elle nous permet de nous servir des fruits et autres aliments dans le frigo à toute heure. Si un soir ils n'étaient pas à la maison, elle laissait tout prêt avec des indications rédigées sur un papier. L'emplacement est idéal, à 12' en tram de l'école et 10' en tram de la gare. Très pratique. De plus, les trams sont très fréquents. Je vous remercie infiniment de m'avoir fait logé chez eux car grâce à ce voyage j'ai fait une très très belle rencontre !!!! Je profite de ce questionnaire pour vous remercier. J'avais déjà fait un séjour dans une autre ville avec une autre agence et cela c'était très mal passé. J'avais peur de repartir mais je n'avais pas le choix, et je suis très très contente de vous avoir choisi comme agence. Tout s'est passé au TOP. L'école ALPADIA est parfaite, la famille était parfaite aussi ! Les personnes qui m'ont aidé à organiser ce voyage étaient à l'écoute et m'ont vraiment préparé un voyage sur mesure qui me convenait à 2000% !!C'est sans aucune hésitation que je vous recommande à toutes mes connaissances !!

« Oui, j'ai beaucoup échangé avec les personnes dans l'école, ma gastfamilie et dans la rue. Freiburg est une ville où il est facile de parler avec les personnes, elles sont gentilles et apprécient les efforts que nous fournissons pour apprendre leur langue. J'ai également fait des progrès car je suivais un cours standard, des cours privés ainsi que les cours d'écrit. »
School highlights
« - La disponibilité et la gentillesse du directeur !!! Il était très à l'écoute et toujours disponible pour me recevoir. De plus, le discours en début de séjour le lundi nous permet de mieux le connaître et de savoir qu'il sera une personne sur qui on pourra compter. Pareil, son discours à la caféteria en fin de séjour le vendredi matin est génial. Cela montre qu'il est impliqué dans nos séjours et cela crée une bonne ambiance. - L'emplacement de l'école : proche de tout !!- Toutes les activités proposées par l'école. En sachant que nous arrivons dans un nouveau pays et que cela est très stressant, les activités nous permettent de faire de nouvelles connaissances dans un contexte simple et bon enfant ! - Les secrétaires sont très sympas et nous aident beaucoup ! (questions de logements, rendez-vous chez un médecin, ...) »
Top tips
« - Visiter la forêt noire !!!!- Les activités organisées par l'école !!!- Manger un bon burger à Maria Restaurant !!! »

Il n'y avait pas assez de place pour "étaler" ses affaires. Pas de tables, juste ces petites tablettes fixées aux chaises. Très bonne qualité d'enseignement. Niveau exigent en lien avec le niveau attendu pour obtenir un certificat C1. Je me tiens volontiers à disposition si quelqu'un souhaite me contacter pour connaître mes impressions.

Un'ottima scuola con dei buoni metodi di insegnamento.Potrebbe essere migliorato il materiale scolastico (sedie, banchi). I professori sono molto disponibili e rendono partecipe la classe. L'atmosfera è sempre molto rilassata e piacevole.

What I like the most are the lessons at the school! I enrolled in the PREMIUM course, which also allows me to improve my written skills, thanks to the afternoon lessons. The number of students in my class is limited, which boosts individual learning. The teachers are always ready to give some advice or correct mistakes. My goal was to get the TELC B1 certificate. The Premium 30 lessons course that I’m currently following will be very useful to reach this goal. Since I arrived, I noticed I made progress and that makes me very happy!

On the weekend, the school organizes many activities (like excursions to Europa Park), movie nights or days out in the city that allow us to discover the area and to use the language outside the classroom. Moreover, living in a residence allows us to meet German students, who live on the last floor. Another opportunity to practice the language!

Freiburg is a university town close to the Black Forest. It boasts traditional architecture charged with history. I thought it was interesting that all of the canals of the town centre are monitored by one single person who is in charge of monitoring the flow of water coming from the mountains. I also thought it was good that plates had been built in the sidewalk in front of the houses of Jewish people who died in concentration camps. The goal of the artist is to get passers-by thinking by giving information about the former inhabitants of these houses. There are a large number of bike parks in Freiburg because it is the main means of transportation in town.

Duration: 8 weeks

I love the German language and I wish to study in Freiburg (Germany) to become a German teacher. I got to know about ESL because my mother knew of someone who had done a trip with ESL – Language Study Trip. Before arriving in Freiburg, I had already done a trip with ESL in Vancouver and I had been delighted with it. I am very happy with the organization of my language trip and the agency helped me when I encountered problems with my flight.
I improved my pronunciation and I can now clearly differentiate the Swiss German from the "Hochdeutsch" as far as the grammar is concerned. Now I am more comfortable with German and make fewer mistakes. Furthermore, the communication with my host family taught me as much as going to school. My host family was always available for me and integrated me in many of their activities. I would certainly go through ESL for my next language trip!
