Ef Paris

La neta es de las mejores experiencias que he tenido, la neta es que es como estar en casa lejos de casa, el staff te apoya en todo lo que necesitas y si tienes algún problema siempre te ayudan. Todos los estudiantes están como super abiertos a hacer amigos y conocerte por lo que facilita el estar aca. Es increible por que conoces una cultura diferente, las clases son super didacticas y los profesores son super buena onda.

Nuit inoubliable

Pendant le Festival de Cannes, nous sommes allées à Cannes pour passer une soirée. Nous étions au Gotha et nous avons été invité dans le backstage du DJ Steve Aoki ! A 4 heure du matin on est allée dans les lodges backstage et nous avons pris un verre. Après, ils nous ont invité pour aller dans un club exclusif en nous faisant passer par un passage secret. Puis, nous sommes arrivées dans un club où il y avait Leonardo Dicaprio et Rihanna ! Le lendemain matin, nous avons pris un bon petit déjeuner à Cannes et nous sommes rentrer à Nice avec le numéro de Steve Aoki :)

Dans les classes j'aimerais que lors des débats par petit groupe entre étudiants, nous soyons corriger sur notre français.

Une belle rencontre

Le petit ami de ma maman d'accueil est italien et nous avons eu des discussions très sympa. Nous avons bu un coup et il était très drole, il faisait plein de blague, et il était super sympa avec un accent très mignon ! :) Il mélangeait l'italien et le francais et ca me faisait vraiment sourire, surtout qu'avec l'espagnol je pouvais deviner ce qu'il disait mais surtout on a vraiment rigoler !

Amazing experience

I had a great time! The staff and school is amazing, and the city is awesome! Lots of things to see and do. The teachers were absolutely great. I especially loved Marianne Pechabrier's class. Overall it was an exciting and unforgettable adventure. I'd go back right now if I could!

What would you improve about this program?
Better organized activities. There were times when I would sign up for an activity, only to be told a few hours later that it had been canceled.

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! :)

What would you improve about this program?
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.

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.

What would you improve about this program?
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.
