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.
Stein Study was a great experience for me! I went to Lindenberg in Germany in March 2019 for two weeks and it was a very effective course and my standard of German improved immensely! In both oral and written work my teachers when I returned noticed a huge difference. The booking process was very manageable and I was enrolled in no time. I had a great time in Germany learning the language and meeting people from all over the world and it is a trip I would strongly recommend!
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.
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.
I have learnt a lot here. I had good craic. I think it helped that the teachers had limited English as it improved my French a lot. I enjoyed the activities after school and the trips in a Saturday, but I think it would be better to have one or two Saturdays off, so we can do what we wanted. My host was very nice, and she spoke little English which also improved my French. Overall, I really enjoyed my time here.
I was nervous arriving here by myself, but I found that after just one day, I was reassured that I would be just fine with all the help from the staff and my host. I really enjoyed the extracurricular activities and found that they greatly improved my spoken French. Whilst there was a bit of learning throughout the class if I was ever stuck or confused, the teachers took their time in explaining it to me, which was greatly appreciated, I toughly enjoyed my time here in La Rochelle and hope to be back soon.
