Dolphins in Antibes!
A year and half ago I started to study French back in Slovakia and I found it very complicated. The most difficult language I have ever learned!!!
Luckily everything changed here in Antibes. I would never have imagined that the language could be taught in such an interesting way. In 2 months I have learned more than during 1 year back at home.
During my stay I met a lot of nice people from all over the word and we visited lot of interesting places. My most amazing experience was our visit to Marineland (the big aquatic park next to Antibes). The killer whales show was really surprising. I was impressed at how high these beautiful giant can jump. In spite of their name “killer whale” they are really friendly and affectionate. They kissed each other under the water - it was so cute.
Course was really interesting and varied, teachers were great! Accommodation was lovely and spacious, really nice place to stay.
The class group was small enough in order to be productive. The teacher used modern and efficient methods of learning. The school also has a good reputation for teaching French to foreigners. Excellent host family.
Course tutors were of the highest standard and this opinion is informed by experience in relation to language courses attended elsewhere. Complete satisfaction with the accommodation provided.
The course was really good, with lots of useful things to be developed once back home. The teachers were really excellent!
The school was very well run. The private lessons were excellent. All the staff were very professional and knowledgable.
My teacher was fantastic.
The language programme itself is great. The course helped me with my conversational French a lot. I like the tour that was given to us on the day of initiation.
I spent two incredible weeks in Antibes, the course was great, the size of the classes was just perfect. I spent my two weeks in the résidence.
I had a very nice vacation, amusing, relaxing and proficuos. The residence was really nice, a very good accomodation.
The teachers were very nice and well educated.
