Very well organised with helpful,friendly staff who seemed to take a genuine interest in the students wellbeing. The teachers were thorough,informal yet professional. The atmosphere was relaxed with much laughter coming from most of the classrooms but nevertheless we worked hard and in 5 days, my French had vastly improved both grammatically and certainly in general conversation. I would recommend this school to anyone, on any level.
