TESTIMONIALS

María del Pilar López Oliete

My stay at TLG was one of the best decisions I took in a very long time. It was very enriching, because I was surrounded by classmates and friends of different cultures, who are now almost my family. I learned many things and I partially overcame my fear of speaking English. I have to thank my teachers, who were very patient, funny and humanly extraordinary – in particular Malika, who helped us when we had all kind of problems, in or outside the school.

My stay in Cork (more specifically, in Bishop), in August, was very good. As the days passed, all my fears about the language started fading away. I was lucky enough to find a very dynamic teacher. In the morning, we used to focus on grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension, in a serious but also relaxed atmosphere – at my own pace.
As a beginner, I can say that – little by little, thanks to my teacher’s patience – I became more fluent and could finally communicate with her and her family. I am now able to conduct a conversation and understand 80% of it – I am still a bit slow, of course. With my teacher, I discovered beautiful spots in the region (parks, castles, restaurants, beaches). She made me love her country.

Now my only wish is to go back there, because those 2 weeks went too fast! And there are so many things I would like to dig a bit more into, to immerse myself deeper in this unique country!

My experience at France Langue exceeded all my expectations. Courses are very dynamic and focus on oral communication most of the time. The vocabulary we learn in school is very useful and topical, and we can use it on a daily basis during our stay in Paris. Workshops help us to analyse specific topics we have learned in class and to practise the language.
Teachers are very caring, dynamic and close to their students.
In 3 weeks, I did some impressive improvements. The accommodation is amazing; I live with a lovely and welcoming Parisian woman. The flat is located in a central and quiet area.
As I said, France Langue exceeded all my expectations, to the point that I would like to extend my stay in Paris!
