I came to this French Language School in Paris for the second time. This time I had to improve my French for my job. The three weeks I was there this summer were very profitable. As it was boiling in Paris, it was a pleasure to be in a school where all the rooms were air-conditioned. It was perfect. I had several teachers who were all very good. After class, they all took the time needed to advise us on what exercises we should do to progress even better.
Studying French in Bordeaux was an unforgettable experience! I met so many interesting people from all over the world and made some great friends. The classes were small and personalized, which helped me improve my French quickly. In my free time, I explored the Bordeaux’s historic center and took day trips to nearby vineyards. I'm already planning my next trip back to Bordeaux!
