The classes are very good, I made many friends and I saw and did very interesting things, things that I didn’t do at home. There are many activities and exciting things to do which allowed me to speak a lot and practise my speaking in a friendly and festive atmosphere. I really like the school, the teachers and this familial atmosphere which prevails there. My stay in Freiburg not only improved my langauge skills, but also prompted me to take a sabbatical year following my studies and to travel abroad to work and learn languages.David / France
