Course of civilizacion francais -on line
May 2021
I join the course mainly because it was la Sorbonne.
I pass the exam to know my level of French and I enrol on the B2 level.
The course I sign on was 72 hours and then I add conferences an extra 200 euros.
When the course started and we al count the total hours, they were only 32 hours of class. In our class we were 15 and we all complain to the administration, but their answer was that you suppose to have study hours at home by yourself with your exercises......wawawauuu
Never hear that before in my life!
They are not good at all
Yes they send you a lot of exercise that you never get to know.... the answer ....of the explanation.....
I actually think my French is worst than when I started the course as I feel 0 confidence now
I never have experience with such a bad college university, you never received any confirmation no information....
really really bad...
I do not have experience with Allianze but they couldn't be as bad

One of the most important institutions
Oct 2019
La Sorbonne, established in the 13th century is one of the oldest and most well known universities. It is located in the Latin Quarter. We only saw it from the outside. It is surrounded by restaurants and many other types of shops. It is certainly worth a visit if you can spare the time.

Wonderful historic seat of learning.In July the Sorbonne holds a 4 week Summer School and 2 of the courses are in English.5 days either morning or afternoon with Sorbonne lecturers and excellent subjects e.g. The French Revolution,French Poetry,American authors in Paris between the first and second wars.On the second day a complimentary tour of the Sorbonne including areas not included in public tours.A beautiful place with fascinating history.The Summer School is fantastic value.I attended in 2018 and 2019 and plan to go again this year.I highly recommend it.

Set in the middle of the Latin quarter, the classy Sorbonne is one of the oldest and most famous universities in the world.
Due to Christmas holidays it was closed so we couldn't enter it, just wandered around and admired the grandeour and beauty of the edifice.

This is one of the oldest universities in the world with some famous graduates and is worth a visit as it has some superb buildings. The neighbour hood it is in has some lovely cobbled streets.
