french course inlingua

Theo (Schweiz)

Adult course

Im August 2017 habe ich während zwei Wochen einen Französichkurs belegt, jeweils während 3 ½ Stunden. Ich habe eine sehr angenehme Zeit verbracht. Der Unterricht war sehr gut vorbereitet und die Lektionen interessant. Die Lehrerinnen waren sehr engagiert, sie machen wirklich eine gute Arbeit. Die zusätzlichen Angebote der Schule waren lehrreich und haben die französische Lebensart und die Stadt La Rochelle nähergebracht. Ich habe sehr viel profitiert und viel gelernt. La Rochelle ist eine sehr lebendige Stadt, die Altstadt und die Umgebung mit den Inseln sind herrlich. Ich hoffe, dass ich bald wieder hinfahren kann.



The aim of the cultural activities is to permit the use of the French language in diverse situations, but also to discover the cultural and professional life of France in the past as well as the present.

Each week inlingua La Rochelle offers at least two cultural activities free of charge:

The activities last on average two and a half hours. They are always accompanied by a guide or a member of the inlingua team who will ensure that you understand the subjects broached. The cost of entrance fees to sites visited will be covered by inlingua.

The activities are in locations near to our centres, accessible by bicycle or public transport the cost of which remains the responsibility of the trainee. inlingua advocates carsharing whenever possible.
