A great program in a beautiful city. Edu Inter has inspired me to continue my French language studies.

Harold Koehler - Germany

I though the course was great. I have not studied French in 20 years and Edu-Inter figured out where I belonged. Class was very fun. I brought my daughter and we had a family vacation while improving our French. I would definitely do it again.

Edu-inter has provided me with a truly genuine French immersion experience. The school is very flexible with it`s acceptance of students every monday and it`s ability to cater to the specific needs of students in course offerings. I feel very lucky to have found the program, with my unique situation of bringing two of my young children here, to live with an excellent host family. After eight weeks of study I am ready to bring our family back together. I will be retourning home with a great boost in my french language skills and a 1 and a 2 year old who comprehend French, thanks to a local daycare that Edu-inter helped me find. Génial!!
