Our students share their experience at our school.
"Hello, I'm an international student who's been studying in France for just over two years. I'm learning French at IESIG with the intensive programme.
First of all, I discovered the IESIG school thanks to a recommendation from my cousin. I liked the fact that the price was reasonable compared with other language schools, and I also appreciated the fluid communication with the Korean staff.
I think the most important thing is not to miss lessons and to participate assiduously. Then, at the end of each lesson, I'd summarise what I'd learnt that day in a notebook and revise as I went along to avoid forgetting. That helped me a lot.
IESIG's greatest strength is its ability to react quickly to situations and to listen to students' opinions. As soon as the lockdown began because of Covid-19, classes were given via Zoom to replace the face-to-face classes that were banned at the time. Given the circumstances, we developed a system that allowed students to ask their teachers questions, even outside class hours. I think that the teachers can be congratulated for their commitment during this period; they enabled us to benefit from a good working environment. Also, the classes are divided into general French and oral workshops, so you can learn grammar and basics in the written classes, and then during the workshop, through class discussion activities, students can apply what they have learned and gain a general understanding of French culture. One of my disappointments is the lack of writing in some classes. This is mainly because of Covid, otherwise I would have been able to make faster progress by being face-to-face, which is a shame.
I've been lucky enough to be accepted at university and I'm going to start in September. While I'm waiting to start my university course, I'm going to keep improving as much as I can. Good luck to you all!"
" I think the lower the level, the more important it is to get used to the French language and adapt to it.
IESIG language school system was perfect for me.
I'm in the lowest level class, but in my atelier class, we listen to French journals, and my teacher is able to explain in French what's happening in France and in Paris at the moment.
At first, I couldn't understand a single word, but then I got used to it and it helped me a lot in real life.
If I didn't understand a word, the teacher would explain it in a way that was easy to understand at my level and kept explaining it until I understood it.
I think I was able to adapt to French more quickly."
