Testimonials

  • Gonzalo, Spain

    I am here because my mother forced me! :-) But I enjoyed my stay here. I followed the Standard course and think that it is the best. I loved meeting new people of different nationalities because this allowed me to soak up the rich, intercultural wealth. I loved my host family too. I lived very close to the metro station which was very important to me, as I wanted to be able to go out easily with my friends. It was a great idea to come here and I don't regret it!

    I chose this destination because I wanted to learn French French, and not Swiss style French. For me it is important to learn French as it's the only language taught in my class along with Spanish.

    My experience with Alpadia Lyon was really very pleasant. The classes always treat a specific theme, allowing us to learn vocabulary particular to different situations. We also spend quality time on expression, with a focus on both oral and written comprehension. The teachers are serious, but still show their sense of humour from time to time. As such, I learned a lot from our classes and they were enjoyable to follow. I took the Premium class that finished at 3pm, which still allowed me enough time to discover Lyon.

  • Carme, Spain

    This week at Alpadia was great! The school is very well organised and the subjects that we cover are varied and interesting. The method with which we work the grammar is highly effective! The classes are small, allowing for the teachers to resolve any doubts and give useful indications to help us learn. During this time in Lyon, I am staying with a host family. It's a great way to practise French and to get to know the habits of the locals, sharing their living space and lifestyle.

    I chose Alpadia because it is a good school. Last year I came here and had so much fun that I decided to come back. The French language is very interesting. Alpadia gave me a great experience and I would like to return next year.

    Lyon was a natural choice as I wanted to discover this exceptional city. I stayed with a dynamic French lady who motivated me. At this host family there were three other students from all over the world. It was wonderfully entertaining to eat at the table and to share a meal together. The Alpadia team were magnificent. It was important for me to learn French as I am studying Public Administration in French. There are so many things to do in Lyon: visit the Parc de la Tête d'Or, go shopping and eat delicious eclairs and cakes!

    Alpadia's teaching methodology and competent, professional team, is adapted to the skills and needs of the students. The organised extra-curricular activities offer a great opportunity to get into contact with other students, to practise the language and to discover the city.

    I really liked my time in Lyon because I could visit a lot of beautiful places nearby and I met a lot of people with whom I could practice my French. I think that this programme is great, because when I came here I really didn't know anything, but now I can have a conversation with the friends that I made here. Learning French is so important, because you can use it all over the world, especially when meeting new people or looking for work. So I'm happy right now :)

    I had a great experience in Lyon. I made lots of friends from different countries. The city is very interesting and pretty with lots of history. My host family was very warm and very friendly with me. I will come back! The school is not too big, which is good because it gives the opportunity for the students to really get to know one another.
