If you are enrolled on an ESA diploma course and your French is far from satisfactory :
If you are beginning an ESA diploma course and your level in French has been judged inadequate by the Admissions Committee of Groupe ESA, then you should accept accommodation in a French family for a minimum of 3 months (perhaps more). Living with a French family will enable you to improve your fluency quicker.
