For your stay in Carcassonne to be an enjoyable and successful experience, it’s important to choose your accommodation carefully.
Because of its tourist assets, Carcassonne offers a wide range of accommodation all year round, catering for all budgets and preferences. You can therefore find exactly what you would like as long as you look for it early.

We have, however, chosen some people with whom we’ve worked for a number of years. We know them well and they have the same outlook as us. We’ve negotiated the best possible prices so that they are reasonable all year round, even in mid and high tourist season. For this accommodation, reservations should be made through us in order to benefit from Ludo Expression’s special price!

Feedback from past students

Intensive course for 4 weeks, May 2019 The family were very friendly
I spent a month at Ludo Expression doing their intensive programme. This consisted of a 3 hour lesson in the morning and a 2 hour one on one lesson in the afternoon. My teachers were Dominique and Michele and they were fantastic! The lessons are very natural and tailored to suit everyones needs. The teachers are very patient and caring. Everything is in French which I think is a great way to learn and towards the end I found myself thinking in French! I improved enormously and would recommend this school, it is intimate and run by great people. Luc, Dominique’s husband was always very helpful to deal with before arriving and a pleasure to spend time with on our once a week school outings. I stayed at a local homestay arranged through the school. The family were very friendly and this meant my lessons continued each evening as we shared deliciously cooked homemade meals.

Intensive course for 1 week, March 2016 Enjoyable and worthwhile week
I recently spent an extremely enjoyable and worthwhile week studying French with Ludo Expression. From the minute Luc picked me up from the airport, I was immersed in the language and culture of beautiful Carcassonne. In the mornings I studied as part of a group of four students, all of a similar level, and in the afternoon, I enjoyed a two-hour one-to-one lesson with Dominique. She is a fantastic teacher and explains everything clearly, concisely and with examples. As I wanted to make the most of my week-long immersive experience, I chose to stay with a family, who lived a short walk from the school. They were lovely and it really helped to put the French that I had learned during the day, into practice over a tasty dinner in the evening. I plan to return to Ludo Expression and Carcassonne, very soon.

Cours intensifs de 2 semaines, juillet 2013 Famille d’accueil, un excellent choix
Bonjour ! En Juillet 2013 j’ai suivi un cours intensif chez LUDO Expression. Je recommanderais le cours intensif à tous qui veut apprendre le français. Luc et Dominique sont des gens fantastiques : sympathique, enthousiaste et serviable. La qualité de l’éducation est aussi formidable. En particulier, j’ai vraiment aimé la façon dont c’est possible de personnaliser le contenu du cours. J’ai fait un progrès important en cause de ce cours, tant en parler le français qu’en l’écrire. Pendant deux semaines j’ai été l’invité d’une famille d’accueil très agréable. J’ai été accueilli chaleureusement dans le cercle d’amis et la famille de ma hôtesse. C’était une occasion excellente pour pratiquer le français j’ai obtenu pendant les jours dans l’institut. En somme, j’ai passé un séjour instructif et agréable dans la belle ville de Carcassonne !
