I spent two weeks at LSI Paris and it was fantastic! From my very first contact with the school, they were helpful, responsive and very accommodating. The course itself was excellent - there was definitely a focus on being better able to communicate and participate in discussions rather than just learning grammar rules and filling in worksheets, as with some other courses I've taken. I would highly recommend it and can't wait to go back!
