Breathe in the fresh, salty sea air, the restaurant next door serves fresh seafood, and around the next corner is the view of the harbour. In La Rochelle, life is dominated by the sea. Lose yourself in the sea breeze in one of the most beautiful places in France and improve your knowledge of French during a language stay!

In the 10th century, the foundations were laid for a fishing village on a small rock on the French Atlantic coast: La Rochelle. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the town flourished due to the wine and salt trade with Europe and the New World. To this day, La Rochelle has lost nothing of its charm as an enchanting harbour and commercial town. The old harbour, the colourful market and the historical old town combine to form a unique backdrop for a language study abroad. Learn French in a place where others go on holiday!

    A typical day at Eurocentres La Rochelle

    Rooms flooded with sunlight, the smell of sun cream, the sound of cafeteria chatter... Impressions from La Rochelle. Mirjam from Germany is here to perfect her French. She chose La Rochelle because she loves the ocean and likes a wide variety of recreational activities. It was the best decision! The sympathetic ambience and the well-structured language tuition are just what she was hoping for. Her friend from the USA also comes on to the sun terrace, where they discuss together – in French – what they want to do after school.  Students come here from all corners of the world, which ensures an interesting multicultural mix.

    Many students hire a bike in order to travel from their accommodation to the school or to tour the beautiful coastal area. You can learn to sail on the Atlantic or just go swimming, but there is also lots to do away from the water. There is even a piano at the school for the students to play – which Mirjam is particularly pleased about. She sometimes organises a concert with her fellow students. The teachers take time for each of the individual students – with a maximum of 14 students per class, this is easily possible. Thanks to this, Mirjam has been able to considerably improve her language skills. With the regular coaching, she is making fast, targeted progress. La Rochelle – she will miss it!

    The teacher is very nice here. But I need some help to open a count of bank and inscripte a cell phone number, because there is very few people who can speak english and no one can speak chinese. The restaurant in Eurocentre at La Rochelle is great. It has cheap food so I have no need to spend more outside. And the family which I stay is nice, too. The father of the family does good cuisine. That's great.
