Ujwal from India, Teenager French summer courses and homestay 

•  "Just a quick email to thank you for having Caoimhe and Tiarnan again this summer. They really enjoyed their time at the school. In three years you must be very proud of how much Caoimhe has grown to love the French language and culture and how much her skills have improved. Thanks to your language school. 

Tiarnan I feel for the first time has begun to like the language and I am delighted with his progress this year. Caoimhe and Tiarnan have made great friends at your school also. Thank you also for organising a tutor. We look forward to returning to Cannes again next year."

Ma Famille française était très sympatique et aimable, et m’a pris comme un membre de la famille. Ils sont vraiment gentils, et j’espère que nous allons rester en contact. J’adore Greg, Dalila, et leurs enfants. Peut-être vais-je retourner l’année prochaine. Je vais en parler avec mes parents.

L’école était très bonne, et j’ai aimé tous mes profs. Lucie, Camille et Miriam étaient fantastiques, et mes leçons étaient très bonnes et amusantes. Je suis arrivé hier soir, et la France me manque. Merci pour tout ce que avez fait. Je pense que je vais vous voir l’été prochain! Merci!! Avec tous mes meilleurs voeux!"
