Nian - China

I come from China and I like French a lot! To me, ALPA is a very well organized school, with competent professors. I came at first to improve my French for a couple of months, and I now I speak French very well. The environment that ALPA provides as well as the French teaching methods have been key factors that helped me do it. The professors are lovely, patient. They really want to help the students to overcome the language barrier.
