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.
My standard of French really improved during my time here especially my oral and aural. Oral work was definitely what I found most difficult prior to my time in La Rochelle however I find it so much easier now. The morning classes were really beneficial when we spoke about general topics such as the media on sport for example. It was really good to practice Leaving Cert papers too however I don’t think it was necessary to do as many as we did.
My Language experience was very enjoyable. Throughout the three weeks, I learned a lot of French and enjoyed the time. I thought the classes were very good, well planed and structed. Teachers were helpful and enjoy listening and work with. Overall the trip was very enjoyable and worth it.
I really enjoyed staying in La Rochelle. I think that I learned a lot if French and I really enjoyed that classes. I loved the activities and I think they really enhanced my experience. All of the teachers were lovely. My host was very nice. She had a lovely house and gave us enough independence. The only aspect that I didn’t enjoy was the food, but I never really liked French food anyways and I had to enhance myself in the culture.
The school was great and I learnt loads of french. The teacher that I had (Jean Luc) was very helpful also! The host family I stayed with was very nice and she helped us with our french a lot because she always spoke french to us.
I Thought the teachers were very professional and the course was good
I’ve had a great time in La Rochelle and would recommend it to younger students looking to improve their French. My host has been extremely helpful and kind. She cooked great food. The classes were enjoyable and challenging, and the teaching were very good. Overall, I’ve had a great time here in La Rochelle.
