Der Eindruck der Gastfamilie war immer positiv, sie waren stehst freundlich und zuvorkommend. Der Kursort lag Zentral und konnte ohne Probleme vom Bahnhof aus erreicht werden. Die Schule war weitgehend sehr gut, ich habe viel gelernt, jedoch lief wegen des Wetters nicht immer alles nach Plan.Die einzigen Mängel die fest stellen konnten, lagen beim Essen. Das Essen war an einem von 10 Mittagessen geniessbar,meiner Meinung nach war es des Öftern Fertigessen. Ich finde es eine tolle und hilfreiche Schule für alle Arten von Sprachleves. Bei uns waren alle Lehrer bis auf eine Lehrperson immer reinlich und haben einem geholfen wenn man eine Frage oder ein Problem hatte. Wir kamen alle gut miteinander aus und unternahmen viel zusammen, ich zum Beispiel schloss Freundschaften für s Leben. Ich und meine Gastschwester haben oft mit der Familie gesprochen und hatten eine gute Zeit mit ihnen. Der Weg zur Schule war unkompliziert, wir fuhren nur 5- 7 Minuten mit dem Zug und mussten nicht weit gehen, da die Schule und die Gastfamilie nahe bei Bahnhof lagen. Wir haben sehr viel mit der Schule unternommen, meiner Meinung und deren anderer manchmal sogar etwas zu viel. Wir hatten von morgens bis Abends Programm und sind viel Bus und Zug gefahren( einmal einen Weg 1 Stunde mit dem Car bis in den Kanton Wallis für einen Zoobesuch), dies war teilweise anstrengend.

Host family
The school personally selects the families in charge of welcoming young students. Students stay in double rooms, shared with another participant. This accommodation option is one of the best ways to immerse yourself completely in the region’s culture. Thanks to your daily interactions with the family, you'll learn how to express yourself in French in total immersion, all while getting to know the way of life of the French-speaking Swiss firsthand.

Note: This type of accommodation is best suited to independent students who will be able to get to the school on their own using public transport.

The school organises a leisure programme with numerous sports and cultural activities, including beach volleyball, swimming, evenings by the lake or sightseeing trips in the region to keep you entertained after your French classes! Two excursions (one half-day and one full-day) are organised every week, allowing you to explore the treasures of this wonderful area: visit Vevey and its "Alimentarium" museum, take a steamboat trip up Lake Geneva, visit Lausanne and its Olympic Museum and much more!
