Discover the testimonials of our students from last summer course

In the above photo, Mook, Pim and Sununta, three lucky students who took the summer course last year. Discover below their testimonials about their experience in learning French at Alliance Française Bordeaux.

“If I had to discribe my experience in one word, I’d say: magnifique!

It is a good way to learn French being surrounded by French people.

My best souvenir is my very lovely classroom environment.

All the members of my host family were very kind and nice to me, I really love them. What I liked most about them was the food (dinner that they cooked for me), how kind and caring they were to me, and lastly they were very willing to help me improve my French.

What surprised me the most was “l’entree” (starter), at first i thought it was the only dish for dinner and it was only a small bowl of carrot.

The places I liked the most is rue Sainte-Catherine, because I’m obsessed with shopping, and Le Pont de pierre, at night it is very beautiful.”

My best memory is my classmates. They are all awesome and fascinating!

I’m in love with every single place there because of its pulchritude.

One of the activities I enjoyed the most was cheese tasting! I would really love to do it again.”

My best memories are the city of Bordeaux and the traditions of French. And the best dish I ate in France was duck steak. It’s awesome!

With my host family (a woman) everything was different and exciting, but we could share and respect each other, and accept the differences. She was very nice and kind. We had cultural exchanges through cuisine and she took me out to the market and Church. The activities were a great bonding experience.
France and Thailand have different cultures but it is a good thing and part of the learning experience.

What surprised me the most about France and French people was when I got lost the young generation of French people took me to an easy way to go home.

The place I liked the most is Saint-Émilion. Its history goes back to prehistoric times and it is a UNESCO world of heritage site, with fascinating Romanesque churches.
The Roman planted vineyard in what was to become Saint-Émilion as early as the 2nd century. In the 4th century, the Latin poet Ausonius lauded the fruit of the bountiful vine.

The advice I would give to the future students who will take a summer course in France like me is that gifts are awesome and great icebreakers. If you want to share with your host you should be a communicating, open minded and mature person. Respect their schedules and curfews. If you know how to cook, feel free to prepare something from your home and take the cultural exchange to the next level. It’s a great social lubricant across cultures. When you’re in a foreign country, going to the supermarket activities is a great bonding experience that lets you practice your language skills and helps you get to know a new culture. Try to be on your best behavior and always say please and thank you. Because you do not live in a hotel and your host is not your maid. Be interested in your host family and try to learn about and from them. It’s the best way to discover a different culture and practice your vocabulary. Friendships cannot be forced, but hopefully, you and your host family will get along – and stay connected even after you say goodbye.”
