I took an Intensive French course in Catholic University of Paris in France. There are many language institutes in Paris, so in the beginning I was going to study in one of them, but Catholic University of Paris also had a language course, so I thought it would be better to take a course in a prestigious university. The school has home-stay arrangement system, so you don’t have to worry about accommodation so much. French are really friendly and kind, so my host family was really good. In school, the course I took dealt with communicative French, and daily French, so I improved on my speaking a lot. Students get to study listening, speaking, reading and writing at the same time, and teachers teach students one-to-one about grammar or pronunciation. The course has 3 hours of class in the morning and afternoon, so total 6 hours a day. The student council holds many different socials, and events for students. Additionally, it doesn’t matter whether you are catholic, but if you are, you get to speak to priests there. After class, students get to hang around in the Paris city, so they have enough time to speak in French with the natives. Therefore, speaking and listening come naturally. Now I am confident with my French. There are other recommended places like Lyon, but I think Paris is the best. 


저는 프랑스 파리에 있는 카톨릭대학교에서 운영하는 집중 프랑스어프로그램을 듣고 온 학생입니다. 파리에는 어학연수 기관이 많이 있는데 처음에는 일반 어학원에서 공부하려고 하다가 프랑스 카톨릭대학교에서도 어학연수 프로그램을 운영한다고 하길래 이왕이면 프랑스에서도 알아주는 대학에서 공부하고 오는게 좋을 것 같아서 카톨릭대학교로 갔습니다. 학교에서 홈스테이를 연결시켜주기 때문에 숙박문제는 걱정 안하셔도되요. 프랑스인들은 워낙 친절해서 홈스테이 가정도 정말 좋았어요. 제가 들은 집중 프랑스어 프로그램은 생활 프랑스어, 커뮤니케이션 프랑스어를 위한 실생활에서 쓰이는 프랑스어를 향상할 수 있는 프로그램이에요. 듣기,말하기,읽기,쓰기 네가지 기능을 전반적으로 배우게되고, 선생님들이 개인적으로 발음이나 문법사용에 대한 부분도 꼼꼼하게 지도해주십니다. 수업은 오전3시간 오후3시간 하루에 총 6시간 수업을 듣게되고, 학생회에서 다양한 이벤트나 교류회를 마련해주셨어요. 그리고 카톨릭교가 아니어도 상관없지만 카톨릭을 믿는 학생들은 현지에 계신 성직자 분들이랑 자주 얘기하는 시간을 갖더라구요. 프랑스어는 정말 많이 늘었어요. 수업시간 외에는 파리를 돌아다니기 떄문에 계속 프랑스어를 쓰게되고 , 현지에서 만난 친구들과도 프랑스어로 대화하는 시간이 많기 때문에 자연스럽게 프랑스어가 몸에 밴것 같아요. 리옹같은 다른 지역도많지만 아무래도 프랑스는 파리인것 같아요.


私はフランスのパリにあるカトリック大学で運営する集中フランス語プログラムを受けてきた学生です。パリーには語学センターが多くありますが、最初は一般の語学センターで学ぼうとしましたがフランスカトリック大学でも語学留学プログラムを運営するって聞いて、同じことならよく知られてある大学で勉強するのがいいと思ってそこの大学へ行きました。学校でホームステーをつないでくれるので宿泊の問題については心配しなくてもいいです。フランス人は何せ親切なのでホームステーの家族もとっても新設でした。私が受けた集中フランス語プログラムは生活フランス語、コミュニケーションフランス語のために実生活で使われるフランス語について勉強するプログラムなんでした。リスニング、スピーキング、ライティング、リディング 4つの機能を全般的に学んで、先生たちが個人的に発音や文法の使い方についてまじめにおしえてくれます。授業は午前3時間、ごご3時間、一日6時間の授業を受けるし、学生会では様々なイベントや交流会を作ってくれました。そしてカトリック教でなくてもいいですがカトリック教の学生は現地にある聖職者さんとよく話し合うことを見ました。フランス語はすごく上達しました。授業の以外の時間はパリーであそぶだからずっとフランス語を使うことになりますし、現地で会った友達ともフランス語で話す時間が長くて自然にフランス語が身につきますよね。リオンのようなほかの地域もありますが、私はやっぱりフランスはパリーだと思います。
