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!
