Best semester I've had

I really do not have enough words to talk about my experience at EF Paris. It was the most amazing semester I've had. I grew up as a person, I matured, and most of all, I made INCREDIBLE friends! I also improved my French so so much, I never thought it would be possible! Also, thanks so much to the EF Paris Activities Office for making my transition as smooth as possible, and I made true friendships with the people who work there.
Merci beaucoup! :)

How can this program be improved?
The host family situation in Paris I find to be very hectic. Many people had problems, including myself. Please stop accommodating people into these host families, they don't feed us properly, they don't treat us properly. We pay a HUGE amount of money, and none of that goes to the host family. At last I did have an amazing host family, but they are not well paid.
Yes, I recommend this program

An experience that I will remember for the rest of my life!

I atended EF Nice and EF Paris. I stayed with host families, where I was able to get truly immersed in the language and French culture. Here you get to practice what you learned in class with natives on a daily basis, so the learning is faster. The host-family makes you feel like at home and it was also nice to live with other EF students.
Both EF schools were great, with awesome professors and activity coordinators that were always there to assist. All professors were commited to their job and the students, so I wouldn’t say that I learned anymore in one city that another! However, the cities were different.
Paris, a beautiful, fast-pace city, has a lot of things to offer no matter what your interests are or what time of the day it is. On the other hand, Nice, a smaller city with a beautiful beach, gives you the opportunity to do short trips to the many cities that lie on the French Riviera, such as Monaco, St. Tropez, and Cannes.
It was a great experience that helped me to meet French as well as international people, develop proficiency in French, and learn about the French culture.

How can this program be improved?
Although the learning experience in Nice and Paris were equally enriching, the physical aspects of the schools were different (Paris being more modern and better-maintained). If I could change something, it would be to make sure to implement consistency in the buildings/classrooms/facilites that the schools offer.
Yes, I recommend this program
