Student Stories

"I’ve been enjoying a lot of the French classes. They have a balance between conversation and grammar. That’s a great opportunity to listen to the language, to have discussions. And there is always some new vocabulary. I’ve already had the opportunity to talk with a lot of people, here at school, with other students. I can understand French better."

Student Stories

"When I started studying French at ILSC, my French improved faster than when I was in Mexico. The first day I arrived, I couldn’t understand anything, but after one week, two weeks, I realized that I can speak French because I have to use the language all the time. If you live the language is the only way to improve it."
