TESTIMONIALS

At the beginning of my stay I was a little bit home sick- it was difficult to get used to so many changes! Luckily I could quickly socialize and made good friends with some students from Ticino, it´s good so we speak in German together. Also in the host family at the beginning everything was new for me, there has been some contrasts, but we could deal with them, we needed some time to get to know each other! Now it´s fantastict! We really get along very well with each other and also with the other students in the house the athmosphere is great! The city of Freiburg is very likable, it´s small but there is everything we need to make the stay very enjoyable, especially the pubs are great! I am very lucky to have a perfect teacher, so that I can benefit as much as I can from my courses. The time went by so fast - I am sad to leave soon, I will really miss all this!

The school is located in a good location. The hours at class are convenient. The school is very good at accommodating all levels and worked to ensure that I got the attention I needed in order to improve. As a first time learner of French, they made the lessons easy to understand and were very patient with me. I felt very supported and feel more comfortable in speaking French than when I started. The excursions were also interesting and at a good price. The housing accommodation was clean and in a good location.

I chose Whistler because I wanted to ski and learn English. I like that the campus is close to everything; the bus stop, dinner places and only 50m from the ski lifts. There’s also a ski locker where I can store my gear. All the teachers are nice and there are dogs to pat between classes, it’s nice to have them around. My homestay family is fantastic. I always eat good food. I would recommend IH Whistler to people wanting to learn English and enjoy the mountain life.
