"I was impressed by the teachers' skill, the thoughtful approach to teaching grammar in interesting ways, and the remarkable support I felt from all the New Deal group."

John Colin Partridge, student from USA

My two teachers were both superb, despite being saddled with a marked range in skills until classes were re-organized. The larger part of my courses were with Nas, who makes learning a language fun, interesting, and at the same time instructive, even when correcting my mistakes. She did a stellar job of having the more hesitant students speak up. She dealt with a large class size, and was particularly insightful into how each student was progressing despite that hindrance. Nas was patient, adept at stretching my (and others') language envelope, and exceptionally clear in her explanations and lessons. Julia was also excellent, though my contact with her was much more limited.

Class size neared the upper limit for one and half of my two weeks. That was a bit of a deterrent to speaking and to learning and practicing better pronunciation. One-on-one tutoring was astonishingly helpful. I knew that that would provide the best forum to learn and to force me to think and speak in French. Luckily, Nas worked wonderfully in this setting. I would emphasize private tutoring in your website. The 20/10 option was the reason I chose New Deal, and I heartily endorse it as the best way to get into a language quickly — if at times imperfectly.

Very convenient location, with a tram stop directly outside.
The staff were always very helpful, interested in making the most of your time at New Deal and helping with information and recommendations.

The facilities were fine, other than class rooms far too small for the number of students.

I did not participate — sadly — in any of the activities, but the idea is very good, and I know that some of the other students felt a bit adrift without friends during their lessons.

We stayed at AppartCity Hotel, which I understand you recommend. It was very convenient. Sadly, the staff were unhelpful, at times brusque, and the overall cleanliness of the hotel (bedding excepted) was stunning. Need a repair job, new carpet, daily not weekly cleaning (once a week in the rooms is fine, but the hallways were filthy even after the weekly cleaning). I have stayed in youth hostels and two-star hotels in poor countries that were cleaner and better run than this "3-star" hotel in Bordeaux.

[As a side note, once I got to know the staff a bit better, they were frustrated at their management who were unresponsive to complaints about the dilapidation and unsavory hygiene.]

"A really good way to learn French"

Elena Arguelles Fonseca, student from Spain

It was amazing. The way that they teach are different and enjoyable, but they always focus on gramma and vocabulary. I like so much the Aude, Gilian and Yaëlle lessons, they are absolutely an incredible and inspiring teachers. I know that 2 weeks aren't enough but I learnt a lot. Also I would like to thank you to Amandine.

"Overall a great experience"

Yiadom

I came to Bordeaux for two weeks and had the course 3x times a week.
I did like the size of the class however I am B2 with a tendency to C1 and I didn't like that I was put in a b1-b2 class
My teacher was nice, she did a great job. Bu I would have like more reading and comprehension exercises and maybe some homework here and there.
The location was super easy to reach and the facility was nice.
There were activities offered but they weren't in my interest.
Overall I really did enjoy it I do think though they should have informed me that my language level wasn't available
Oh a place within the school to get food would have been amazing.

"Very pleasant stay"

Andrej Novotny

The school itself was very nice, cozy and on the good location. Teachers and students creates almost family atmosphere. It takes little time to find the correct level for me, but I enjoyed the study very much. The city of Bordeaux I can also recommend, you have plenty of opportunities you can do.

"Excellent immersive experience."

Daniel W Parsons

I was only at the school for one week, but between the classes and the home stay with a French family I fit in an amazing amount of practice in just 5 days and felt much more comfortable with my French. I also achieved my goal and passed my French exam when I returned home.

Thanks

"Young energetic teachers and excellent work space"

Lesley Pawley

I think the positioning of my son and I was spot on regarding our level. I had no idea what to expect, I didn't realize that some people had already been in the class for a few weeks - you are just slotted into whatever they are learning at the time.

In 5 weeks we had at least 3 (if not 4) different teachers. This was not ideal, as sometimes they did not pick up where the other one left off, and they all had their own teaching style.

I realize it must be difficult having new students and differing abilities starting at all different times and doing different days of the week, but it did feel a little disjointed at times. I may have preferred more of a planned 5 weeks classes, knowing what I would learn over the whole time. We seemed to spend a lot of time on less petites announces...

Overall, it was beneficial, but I feel it could have been structured in a more organised fashion.

"Very good facilities, great staff, welcoming environment, well priced."

Adam Holgeth

I have no complaints or problems about the course/organisation. My only gripe was 9am starts - too early for myself and clashed with work schedule.

Could not partake in 'activities' due to work commitments although have kept in contact with fellow students. Cannot comment on 'housing'.

Otherwise very good and highly recommended.

Thank you, I 'm sorry you couldn't participate to the activities we propose.
See you soon !

"C'etait formidable! It was great!"

J.P. Walsh

The instructors were friendly, creative and always fun and encouraging. The office was clean, comfortable and easy to get to by tram, bike or foot. I loved that they had some outside of the classroom activities so that you could practice French in a more natural setting and get to know other students and faculty. It seemed more like a family of friends interested in learning language and about each other and their culture.... and it was fun to have students from around the world of different ages and walks of life.

All the teachers are kind to me. There are less than 10 students in a class, so I can speak French a lot.
