I can't describe my stay at LSF in words! It was truly an amazing experience. My professors were dedicated and they had passion for teaching. The low number of students created a nice atmosphere and I aways felt like I could talk about my problems if I had any. Also It gave me the chance to get to know the other students from all around the world. The activities organized for us were so great, especially the visit to St. Guilhem and the wine and cheese tasting. I recommend LSF for everybody who want's to get to know France and French culture and also to improve their language skills. Thanks for the great time LSF 🙂
