1. I took the French luxury certificate. French wine was one of the three courses and was the class I appreciated the most. We learned how to taste and smell wine, how to distinguish the true or fake. We know more about the grape, the vineyard.

2. What impressed me most are the lecturers of the courses. They are professionals and experienced in that specific fields. They gave interactive classes and explained with real life examples.

3. I am satisfied with the activities arranged by the programme. We got the chance to visit a local enterprise which produces fragrance bottles for some famous fashion brands, the National Assembly of the 5th France Republic, the Montmartre and national opera house.

4. Lecturers here loved to have outdoor classes which allow students to learn from the real world in addition to textbook knowledge. In the French Luxury class, the lecturer led us to the Montaigne Avenue, and asked us to interact with the salespersons there to gain more first-hand information about different luxury brands.

5. I joined the marketing programme. The programme includes three courses and there were around 40 people in one class.

1. We lived off-campus with “Comfort of Home”. The apartment is French style and was the most comfortable place to stay in France. We could meet some new friends in this apartment and also have a good private space for ourselves.

2. The programme recommended but did not allocate accommodation for us. I finally chose a shared apartment with six rooms, it was one hour away from the campus. The surrounding was safe, we could also have easy access to shops, supermarkets, etc.
