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.
It was a really good course for learning to use French. We were encouraged to use as much French as we could. The teachers were all very good.
It was extremely good. The tours and activities were well organised, and they were very interesting. All the staff were excellent, very understanding easy to talk too and friendly. My host family were so great. They were always understanding and eager to help me improve my French. The experience over all was incredible and I notice an improvement in my French. I loved my time in La Rochelle so much that I came back for a second trip during the summer and stayed with the same host family again. Stein Study done an amazing job organising this trip for me. Thanks Nikki!
The first few days were a bit nerve wracking for me but the school were good at helping me settle in. I had such a good time and I really don’t want to go home. The activities were really super.
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!
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.
