Students live in twin and a few multiple occupancy rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. We carefully choose the students who will share a room with each other, taking care to match roommates who have a comparable German language level and are of similar age, yet speak different native languages. This way we encourage them to speak and practice German with each other outside of the classroom. Boys and girls are housed separately.
The friendly atmosphere of the building will help the students to soon feel at home in the new environment. The students have Wi-Fi access at the school.
Our students receive three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) as well as a snack daily.
Laundry service is offered to all students free of charge once a week for their personal laundry. Bed linen and towels will be provided and changed regularly.
The closest airport is Frankfurt.
No flights are not included in the price. You will need to arrange your own flights, although we are happy to advise which flight to book.
Transfer between the airport and your school can be arranged. The prices can be found on the dates & prices page.
All meals are included in the price. You will, however, need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.
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.
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 am so glad I chose to do this online course! Every aspect in French that I outlined that I wanted to improve in has been covered in great detail but also in a way that is easy to understand. Although it is only an hour I feel like my French is improving at a rate that I definitely would not have expected beforehand. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is interested in doing an online course of any sort.
I really enjoyed my time here, I made loads of new friends and I feel really sad leaving La Rochelle, because I really got to know the city very well. I feel I did improve my French, and would have more also having fun.
It was a great experience to immerse myself in the French Language in La Rochelle. Everybody in La Rochelle that we met were very nice and corrected our mistakes when speaking that was very helpful. I learnt most of my French while at home with my host. Overall I learnt a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to La Rochelle and all of the teachers & instructor’s, they couldn’t have been nicer.
It was an enjoyable experience. The second week was more enjoyable as there were more activities which were all very enjoyable. Improved in my French during the time I was here – mainly due to the classes
I had the lost amazing stay in Cádiz and could not be happier with everything that I experienced while I was there! I definitely feel like my language skills have improved drastically, the organised excursions were great, all of the teachers were very helpful and up for a laugh which immediately made you eager to learn Spanish to be able to chat with them!
I have Found my language Experience very good and I think I have learnt a lot. Our Host was very nice, and I have learnt a lot from listening to their conversations at dinner, going to classes has also been very good and our teachers very good and I felt that I have learnt a lot. I have also really enjoyed doing all the activities an getting to walk around La Rochelle. The teachers are nice, and they ensured that everyone enjoyed the activities. I think La Rochelle is a great place to come as the weather is nice and there is a great night life which had been fun to experience. I feel that I have learnt a lot from the classes and just listening to French people talking when we are out and about
