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 delighted to give a review of Anne-Marie’s 6 week stay in Cádiz. She would tell you that it was the highlight of her TY year and a tremendous opportunity for her to mature and experience increased levels of independence. She learnt a considerable amount in Clic for the ...
I came in with a very basic knowledge of speaking French since being here. The teachers were very friendly and helped if you couldn’t understand something. The direction was super. I also really enjoyed the freedom available in the school. The activities were very enjoyable as well over because of the weather, it was a very new enjoyable experience for trying to improve the standard if your French.
People in language school lovely and very eager to teach. Teachers very good. The activities such as Sailing, bowling, cinema and beach very enjoyable. Melanie my host mum was so sweet and kind and her son was so cute.
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.
My overall experience was extremely positive. During my time here. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect such as the classes and the activities organised at Inlingua. The activities were so varied and the organisers did everything to make everyone feel welcome and to make sure everybody was enjoying themselves. The French classes were all so interesting and both of the teachers that I had were very friendly and helpful. We covered so many topical over the two weeks and the teachers always made each topic interesting and easy to understand. We also had classes for leaving cert prep spread over 5 classes during 2 weeks I found these classes so helpful for the understanding of the exam next year and our teachers were so helpful and accommodating towards us. Staying with a host family was also great for getting the full French experience and our host family made us feel very comfortable. I enjoyed the whole trip and made so many new friends from my trip.
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.
