Testimonials of the success of our students
"My name is Eleonora, I am 22 years old and I am Italian, I decided to settle in France for a year to learn the language and gain professional experience, I turned to the Coaching program" Work Experience" from the school France Langue. I took a French course for two weeks, in a class with people who had the same linguistic level as me and with whom I could easily build a dialogue.
The course was well structured and very useful for taking my first steps in oral French. From the beginning the school team already helped me get ready for my first job interview. Fortunately, the interview went well: I still work in the restaurant recommended by the team, in an environment with many other young people who have become friends. An experience that not only made me grow as a person, but also helped me improve my French.
Thanks to this experience, I was able to regain my independence. Initially, I only had to stay one year in France, but I finally decided to stay and continue my studies here, changing my plans and prospects for the future. "
"My name is Nathalie and before arriving in Paris I was already sure that the best way to learn French is to integrate in the country by working here. I was right after two weeks of classes at France Langue to improve my grammar and remember the vocabulary, I was found a job interview! I did a "specialized workshop" to train in maintenance (it was my first in French) and I did it right away, so I started my eight months of experience in a French pastry shop, I had a good taste of all the cakes (really all) and I always spoke French with all my colleagues and with the customers.
It was difficult at the beginning but during my last week, three different people told me "Ah you are not French? I did not know it! "What a great reward ... Here are the reasons why I did this course and this experience! In addition, I made many friends to the point of being sad when leaving Paris which became my second home! "
