I been thinking about going at the Sorbonne for taking a 2 months course this summer (Cours de Civilisation Française). However, and since I finished my career already (I´m 26) and have a business of my own, I`m doing it more for the experience that for any academic proposes, and there`s my mayor doubt…
First off I been checking the La Sorbonne website (Cours de Civilisation Française), but there is not much detail about the course schedule; like the hours of attendance, time available between each class, lunch break and so on.
What I do know is that is a very formal and efficient environment, with high academic standards, and I have to say, I have been in such environments before; not a really good place for making many friends.
Even though, I would like to know from some people that have experienced La Sorbonne Cours de Civilisation Française, and please tell me if:
Is there any respite between classes?
Is it even possible for somebody who goes on his own to make friends in such an environment?
Is there any outside activities or short trips?
I don’t know, maybe this is not the right course for me or the kind of experience I´m looking for …and as I said before, I´m not doing this for academic proposes.
Thanks a lot for your time.
