« Si penso di essere molto migliorata. Al mio arrivo in Francia non ero in grado di esprimermi, conoscevo qualche regola di grammatica, e riuscivo solamente a comprendere un po' il francese per la somiglianza fonetica con l'italiano. Avevo il livello A0.1. Dopo quattro settimane ho raggiunto il livello A2.2. Riesco ora a parlare in modo abbastanza sciolto senza fare tanti errori, non sono ancora in grado di argomentare tutte le tematiche ma quel che riguarda la quotidianità riesco a comunicarlo. Ho apprezzato molto l'attenzione posta sull'esposizione orale, e sull'apprendimento di vocaboli (mi venivano consegnate schede di lessico quasi quotidianamente, con ripasso settimanale delle parole apprese). E soprattutto, per la prima volta mi son ritrovata a parlare una lingua che non fosse la mia senza alcun tipo di preoccupazione. »

Testimonials

Bart Wiersma
Bart Wiersma
Centre International d'Antibes
Duration: 6 weeks

I've been at the CIA at the Côte d'Azur for 4 weeks now. When I came here, I didn't speak French very good. Now, I’m much more confident and feel like I learnt lot. I have a good teacher.
I've had a great time with the other students here, going out, going to the beach. All students speak English and of course, we speak mostly French in the residence. 
The room where I’m staying in, is very basic but it's not really a problem for me.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to do something else for a few weeks (or month).
