Overall it was a very good experience and I really enjoyed it. Most of the classes were very good and I learned a lot. I do think that some of the exam prep classes were a bit long. All the organized activities were really fun and enjoyable. The house was very nice and in a good location not being too far from school or the town. I would recommend this to others.
I loved my experience at the school. The classes were very intensive, and the teachers were all good. My host family were amazing there food was really nice and I had such a good two weeks in their home. I enjoyed some of the activities and loved the group leaders. I appreciate the freedom at night.
I loved my trip because everyone was always very kind and I felt I had any problems I could have easily got help. I found the weeks I was here with more students was the better memories as it was more fun during our free time and during activities with everyone. I found the classes very helpful for both pronunciation and my grammar.
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 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.
I had a Fantastic experience with Inlingua, I felt the classes were extremely beneficial and the activities we did with Yann and my host family couldn’t have been more accommodating. All the teachers in the school were extremely helpful and did everything they could to ensure I got the most I could have from this trip. If there was one small thing I would change would be maybe to have a longer morning class until maybe 1.30 then not have an afternoon class as in the sunny days, I really wanted to be outside. I really enjoyed my trip and would recommend this to a friend.
