  • In each module there is something new every day. I am always excited to know what will be today’s content. It helps me to gather much knowledge that I’m positive I can face the challenges in France when I arrive.

    It is a very complete programme. I’ve made a lot of languages courses before but the International Academy provides really nice tools and complements with different contents that are as useful as learning the language itself. Every detail was planned and I felt supported all the time.

  • The International Academy was so recommended to me to facilitate the integration process, to break down the language barrier right away, to acquire knowledge.

    I felt that the academy improved my linguistic, oral, and comprehension skills.

    I think the modules have covered the key points that we should know once we come to France.
