Situated on the Mediterranean coast, Montpellier is the 8th most populated city of France and keeps attracting more and more people thanks to its relaxed southern atmosphere, its thirst for culture and its festive mood. This French Riviera city has enough to make any European city envious: golden sandy beaches just 6 miles away, 300 days of the sun per year, a buzzing nightlife, outstanding history and architecture are just some examples of what you will experience there. It is not by chance that the New York Times nominated Montpellier in 2012 as one of the top 45 places to visit worldwide!
Extremely enjoyable, learnt a lot and met lovely people. It is a great school at which to learn French.
Our teacher was wonderful and very eager to help! She had everything planned out for us and obviously knew what she was doing! I had a great time and learned lots.
The teachers were fantastic and the material was always useful and varied.
The course was all that I'd hoped it would be. It covered grammar instruction, interesting discussions, conversation and debates, with varied and stimulating topics.
The course was excellent. Montpellier is a fascinating place. In the fortnight I was there I only scratched the surface. I'd like to spend much longer and will, sometime soon.
The course was everything I could have asked for. The teachers clearly understood the needs of their students and in only a week, they really helped me in developing the standard of both my written and spoken French.
I can recommend Montpellier as a first class destination to learn French. A very pleasant city with something for everyone I think.
The classes were excellent, really good. The teacher was wonderful and I learnt a lot.
The course was very good and I feel I gained a lot in just one week.
I really enjoyed the course and feel that my French has greatly improved. My host was so nice and the house was full of character, I would recommend it to anyone.
