Language School AmboiseEurocentres: C’est génial!

Average rating
4.5 / 5

The language school in Amboise is situated in the centre of the charming Renaissance town in the Loire valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The townscape is dominated by the impressive Amboise château. A past lord of the château, the art-lover Franz I, enticed famous people such as the universal genius Leonardo da Vinci to his home. The creator of the Mona Lisa even spent his later years in the separate Château Clos Lucé. During your language study stay in Amboise, you can also follow in the footsteps of a genius. And maybe you will even meet up with a contemporary celebrity: Rolling Stone Mick Jagger spends most of his free time in Amboise. With so much inspiration in the air, learning French at our school will certainly be an easy pleasure.

The language school is located in the heart of the town on an idyllic, tree-lined square. You are just a five minute walk from Amboise and Clos Luce châteaux and the shopping district with its street cafés and bistros. As a class, you will go on excursions in the close vicinity where châteaux, forests and vineyards await you. The rooms in our school are bright and charming and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. However – or maybe, because of this – our teachers will prepare you competently for your goal. It is therefore not surprising that Eurocentres Amboise is the regional centre for the DELF/DALF examinations.

    A typical day at Eurocentres Amboise

    Although she has to get up at a time that is, for her, relatively early, Jessica loves the morning bike ride through the picturesque town. And when she puts some effort into pedalling, it is just 10 minutes from her host family to the school, where the lessons start at 9.00 am. The 20-year-old commercial clerk has decided to polish up her French skills in order to add an approved certificate to her CV and thus improve her chances of more exciting job offers. In Amboise, she is hoping to attain the DELF A1 certificate in two weeks. And it is all going according to plan. The young lady from Canton Aargau finds the learning atmosphere in the culturally diverse class motivating and the ambience in the small, informal and local school pleasant.

    The teachers are experienced and know how to provide interesting, varied lessons. It is certainly never boring. This afternoon, an excursion to Clos Lucé is planned. As the teacher explained in the morning class, this is where Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life. Before the group excursion, the class enjoys lunch together in the lounge, chatting about this and that – of course, Jessica also chats casually in French with her fellow student, Ruby, who is from New Zealand.

    Eurocentres in Amboise is an excellent school to study the french language! Nice warm atmosphere and very pedagogic teachers! And Amboise is a pretty town with lots of cafees and a magnificent Castle by the Loire river!

    I had an amazing time! It is amazing how much i learned in only 10 weeks ( i went from B1 to B2) The teachers are really helpful and patient and they will try to give a fun and interesting class. I learnt more during those 10 weeks than during the 4 years i've been studying French! And Amboise is such an amazing town, full of life and cultural events. It really was one of the most fulfilling experiences i've had, personally and educationally.

    Eurocentres is a very well organized institution I think, with excelent teachers who know how to teach very well. I also enjoy how there are very differenet activities that are organized which we can all participate to do and expirience new things and get to know the people at eurocentre. However I think that Eurocentre can work on getting more students who are younger. There are many older people and not so many kids for me to become friends with so the only thing I would say Eurocentre needs to work on is attracting more younger people. It has been great so far and I have learned french at a very surprising fast rate.
