Alpadia testimonial - Femke

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.
