CESA were recommended to me by a friend and I found you really helpful and very professional.  I had a tremendous time in Paris and can’t wait to go back.

I thought Paris was a great place to stay, the Parisians were very willing to wait for me to try and form coherent sentences without interrupting and they were also helpful the numerous times that I got lost.  One lady even personally showed me the way to my accommodation in the pouring rain!  I did find Paris to be expensive but that was probably because I chose to do typically “touristy” things which tend to cost more.  I had so much to do during the day I didn’t manage to see everything and wished I was staying longer. 

I stayed with a delightful lady and both she and her family were incredibly welcoming and kind to me.  I would definitely recommend Dominique to other students.  My room was clean and I even had my own bathroom which was an unexpected bonus!  I think any student would find it amazing to live and explore such a wonderful place as Paris.

The school lived up to my expectations and was everything that CESA told me to expect.  I found the group lessons enjoyable and really effective.  I especially liked that the lessons alternated between two teachers.  I felt very comfortable at the French language school in Paris, despite only having the opportunity to study for one week.  Both the staff and the other students were welcoming and approachable.  The fact that the school is so close to a mainline metro stop made the morning commute and seeing sights after class very straight forward.

Even though I was only there for a week I can honestly say that I have noticed a great improvement in my speaking skills. 

Overall the trip was excellent!
