The school does not permit friends or even students of the same nationality to share rooms. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people. If this makes you feel uncomfortable they school has a limited amount of single rooms available for an additional cost of €160 per week.
Having a foundation of conversational German is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.
I really enjoyed my stay in La Rochelle and I feel like I have a greater understanding of the language. The school helped me build vocabulary that enabled me to better understand what people were saying to me or understand menus, maps ect. I also think my reading of comprehensions has improved greatly. Overall, my experience was very good and I want to thank Stein Study and the School.
My French was not great when I came to La Rochelle but was not bad and I did not have much confidence to speak it but spending 4 weeks here it has improved written, oral and aural. The French were very patient in La Rochelle when I was trying to speak French, more then I expected and were great help when it came to try to find an English word in French. The Leaving Cert practice was also very beneficial to me as I got to correct it with a French person. The class hours and activities were amazing. I personally feel the activities got me to speak French more casually and the not like school work. My French has improved here in La Rochelle, I was very happy with my stay and would love to return.
Having gone on this trip, I finally got my head around the grammars. The main highlights were making friends and I still keep in contact with the girl who stayed in the same house as me and we mainly communicate through French. I also enjoyed independently touring Rouen- seeing the Notre Dame Cathedral and eating out and meeting up with friends in the evening. "
The Staff in the school are really nice and friendly. The activities they planned for us were all fun. Classes were fine. Our host family was so nice and welcoming.
It was great to be able to learn French and be surrounded by real French people and experience what it would be like to get up every morning and travel to work or school. The teachers were always nice and I really enjoyed the excursion on the Weekends.
My experience with my language experience was overall really enjoyable. My host family was so nice and gave us really nice accommodation of such high standard. They made me feel so welcome. The food was also delicious. I also really enjoyed my classes in school because I really did learn so much. The activities were really well organised and I had a lot of fun taking part in them. During my stay I made so many new friends and really had such a good time.
