Learn French in Montpellier

A beautiful and historic city in southern France, within a stone’s throw of the country’s famous Côte d’Azur beaches, Montpellier is a spectacular location in which to learn French. With its warm Mediterranean atmosphere and vibrant, youthful feel - thanks to the students who come in droves to attend the city’s university, one of the oldest in the world - Montpellier has something for everyone and is delightful at any time of year. Wander the narrow streets admiring classic 19th-century architecture, enjoy fresh bouillabaisse or a light pan bagnat on a sun-lit terrace, chat with the locals over a glass of vin straight from one of Montpellier’s vineyards, or visit some of the city’s key sites, like its cathedral, its chic Antigone district, and the famous Place de la Comédie public square. Whatever you do, your immersive French experience here will be second-to-none!

With a history spanning over 1,000 years, Montpellier has long been an important French city. It has been a trading port since the early Middle Ages and, by the 13th century, Montpellier was the hub of France’s lucrative spice trade. Because of this, it attracted visitors from far and wide and was even then known for its vibrant, multi-cultural atmosphere. This importance led to the building of Saint Pierre Cathedral, a stunning 14th-century construction which abuts the historic campus of Montpellier University. Founded several centuries before the cathedral, the university counts among its alumni such famous names as Petrarch, Nostradamus, François Rabelais, and even two popes. The ancient buildings, including the library, the curious Conservatory of Anatomy, and the School of Medicine’s botanical gardens - with its intriguing follies and peaceful places to relax - are open to the public throughout the year, and well worth a visit for any culture vulture or history buff.

This interesting and dynamic city blends this history and high culture with more modern attractions, such as the futuristic Théâtre Jean-Claude Carrière, where you can watch a French-language play or catch a French concert. Shopaholics can get their retail therapy fix in Antigone, home of fashionable boutiques and Le Polygone shopping mall; here you’ll also find chic bars and eateries that’ll keep you refreshed during your adventures. While you’re in the area, be sure to visit the iconic Place de la Comédie, the undisputed hub of the city. This huge pedestrianised square is packed with shops, cafés, and eateries providing ours of entertainment. While you’re here, admire the Fountain of Three Graces, the symbol of the city, see a show at the world-renowned Opéra Comédie, or ride the Ferris wheel at the end of what locals call ‘The Egg’ for exceptional views over the city. After this, take a stroll right down to the end of the square, where you’ll find the wide, tree-lined Esplanade Charles-de-Gaulle, home to art galleries, open-air restaurants, and regular flea markets.

In the medieval Old Town, meanwhile, you’ll find ancient buildings peppered with quaint courtyards, independent boutiques, historic churches, and eateries offering the best of Mediterranean fare. Be sure to visit les Halles Castellanes, the city’s main fresh food market which is very popular with the locals. Here you can try out your language skills and buy delicious ingredients to cook some authentic French dishes. Stay in the area until the evening to experience the laid-back atmosphere so characteristic of this part of the world, as the locals meet one another for a drink and a chat. It’s along the gorgeous narrow streets of this part of the city that you’ll find our central French language schools.

We apologise for any inconvenience, however, host families are still available. Please feel free to contact us for further information.

Our main French school in Montpellier is located in the city’s picturesque historic centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the famous Place de la Comédie public square. If you learn French with us here, you’ll find yourself in the perfect place for exploring the city, enjoying its interesting shops and restaurants, and seeing many of Montpellier’s most popular attractions. Nearby sites of note include the Promenade du Peyrou, with its wide, tree-lined walkways, impressive aqueduct, and famous triumphal arch, which sits on the site of the ancient city gates. Montpellier’s stunning cathedral and the adjacent university buildings are just 10 minutes’ walk away, as are the city’s botanical gardens and Le Corum, the cultural events venue at the end of the iconic Esplanade Charles-de-Gaulle. Public transport links close to the school provide easy access to the lovely beaches on France’s Cote d’Azur and the several interesting Napoleonic-era mansions around the city, relics of Montpellier’s lucrative wine trade.

The French courses offered by this school take place in one of the traditional Renaissance-style buildings characteristic of Montpellier’s historic centre. The facility has 7 air-conditioned classrooms and a self-study centre where you can make use of the school’s multi-media learning resources. A selection of communal computers is available for completing homework, getting in touch with family and friends back home, or simply surfing the web.

As a member of quality-control organisations like the International Association of Language Centres (IALC) and Eaquals, and with Qualité FLE accreditation from the French Ministry of Education, this school offers a high standard of language tuition to all its students. The facility’s small size means that all pupils benefit from highly personalised attention from their teachers, while the school’s location in the centre of the vibrant city of Montpellier means that it’s a popular choice for our French students. What’s more, since it offers competitively low prices, your immersive French experience has never looked so good!

You can also study at our ‘Montpellier Premium’ school, which is just around the corner from this language centre. That school has 20 air-conditioned classrooms, student computers, and a resource library. Feel free to contact us for more information about the Premium facility.

Courses in Montpellier

Available courses

  • Intensive (20)
  • Intensive + Private Lessons (25)
  • Super Intensive (30)
  • Academic Year (20)
  • Super Intensive Academic Year (30)

The core Intensive programme offered at our Montpellier school consists of 20 group lessons per week. Classes take place between 09:00 and 12:15 each weekday in groups of up to 12. This limited class size means each student benefits from lots of language practice and highly personalised attention from the teacher, giving them the best chance of success. Groups are organised according to students’ starting ability level, which ensures that everyone receives appropriate tuition. Please note that classes may take place in the afternoon during busy periods.

If you want to make significant progress during your time in Montpellier, you should attend the Super-intensive course of 30 group lessons per week. Your extra classes will take place between 13:15 and 15:50 three times a week and focus on conversation techniques, helping you to strengthen your language skills and speak with confidence.

Please note: if you have no previous experience with French, you will need to start your course on a specific date - contact us for available start dates for beginners.

To really maximise your language progress, get extra support, or cover specific topics, you can take private lessons. You’ll have 20 one-to-one lessons as standard, though bespoke packages are available on request. These sessions will give you the undivided attention of the teacher, maximum language practice, and the opportunity to tailor your tuition to your specific requirements, which will all allow you to make unparalleled progress, however long you study for.

While private tuition is extremely beneficial in terms of development, it doesn’t offer the social experience provided by group classes. Fortunately, we have the answer: combine the best of both courses with an Intensive + Private programme! By adding 5 one-to-one classes per week to your core course, you’ll receive the extra practice afforded by private lessons whilst still experiencing the social side of group tuition. Students who want to make even more progress can add private lessons to their Super-intensive course.

If you’re passionate about both languages and food, why not combine the two on the French & Cookery course? If you select this package, you’ll enjoy 2 3.5-hour workshops each week after your core French classes. Through these workshops, you’ll discover the secrets of delicious French dishes and learn the vocabulary needed to understand a French recipe. At the end of each workshop, you’ll enjoy the meal you’ve just made with your classmates! This course is open to students of all ability levels and is available throughout the year.

If you’re studying French for current or future work, this school’s Business French course will be perfect for you. Consisting of 10 mini-group lessons after your core Intensive classes, this programme will teach you business-related vocabulary and professional writing skills that will put you well on your way to communicating with confidence. This course is available throughout the year and is open to students with B1 or higher French ability.

The above courses are all available at both our ‘Montpellier’ and ‘Montpellier Premium’ schools.

On the first day of lessons, you should arrive at the school at 08:00. You will have already submitted a level test prior to arrival, which is used to assess your starting language ability and place you in a group that’s most suitable for that level. You will have a short oral assessment on arrival to verify the results of this test, before having your class placement confirmed. This methodology provides students with the best possible opportunity to improve their language skills, regardless of their starting level.

In the afternoon/evening, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in the school’s activity programme. At the end of your course, you’ll receive a certificate of achievement, which can be used to demonstrate the French ability level you have reached during your time at the school.

Accommodation

Available accommodation

  • Campus (July & August only)
  • Host Family
  • Shared Apartment
  • Student Residence

To maximise your French exposure and get extra language practice with native speakers, you should stay with a local homestay host! Hosts live up to 25 minutes’ travel from the school by public transport and offer private single or twin* bedrooms; you’ll also have access to the home’s communal spaces such as the living area and bathroom. You can choose a self-catering package - meaning you’ll have access to the kitchen to cook your daily meals - a breakfast-included package, or a half-board package (breakfast and dinner). We highly recommend the half-board option, as it is not only cost-effective but also gives you guaranteed social time with your host(s) in the evening, and thus maximum language practice. The self-catering option offers much fewer opportunities for extra language practice, since you have less guaranteed time with your host(s). Whichever option you select, bed linens, towels, and a weekly laundry service will be provided by our hosts. Hosts will also provide a transfer service on arrival for no additional charge. Most hosts have Wi-Fi access in the home, but you should advise us at the time of booking if this a requirement for you. You will have your own key to come and go as you please, but you must respect house rules and schedules. Please note that the self-catering homestay option is not available to under-18s.

For more independence, select one of the school’s student residences and stay in a single or twin studio with its own private bathroom. Some rooms have private kitchenettes, while others offer access to a communal kitchen. When booking this option, you can select a twin room even if travelling alone; if you do this, you’ll be assigned to a roommate of the same gender and a similar age. This option is offered on a self-catering basis, allowing you to cook for yourself or eat in local restaurants as you prefer. The residences are located around 10 minutes’ walk from the school and offer a highly social experience that’s great for students aged 16 - 30. Bed linens are provided but towels are not, so you should bring your own; coin-operated laundry facilities are available on-site, and students attending long-term courses are responsible for washing their own bedding. Wi-Fi is available in all residences. A €250 deposit is required on arrival, which will be returned to you on departure providing your room is left in a suitable condition. Please note: residence rooms do not have air-conditioning; please select a studio apartment if you would like air-conditioning in your lodging.

During July and August, you can select university campus lodging. The campus is located around 20 minutes from the language school and offers private single or twin* bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and Wi-Fi access. Students share the communal kitchen and can either cook here or go to local University restaurants for their meals. Crockery and utensils are not provided, so if you select this option will need to bring your own or buy supplies locally. This is a cost-effective, social option that’s great for students aged 18 - 25 who want to meet other international pupils during their time in Montpellier. Bed linens and towels are provided and changed weekly; coin-operated laundry facilities are available on-site. A €250 deposit is required on arrival, which will be returned to you on departure providing your room is left in a suitable condition.

Those looking for total privacy and a higher standard of accommodation can book a studio apartment in a local aparthotel. When you select this option, you’ll have a private single or double* studio with its own private bathroom and added amenities like air-conditioning, a television, and Wi-Fi access. The studios also have their own fully equipped kitchenettes and are thus offered on a self-catering basis, though you can add breakfast on-site if you’d like. The aparthotel complex is located around 10 minutes from the school by tram; it has its own rooftop swimming pool and sun deck, which are available between June and October. Bed linens and towels are included and changed weekly; a laundry service is available on-site for an additional fee. Kindly note that tourist tax is not included and should be paid for on-site. Apartments for families of up to 4 are also available on request.

The above options are available at both the ‘Montpellier’ and the ‘Montpellier Premium’ schools.

*Twin rooms are only available to students travelling together. If you select a shared room in homestay, campus, or studio but are travelling alone, you will be swapped to a single room or studio. You can only select a twin room when travelling alone if selecting residence accommodation.

Activities

To complement your immersive language classes, the school offers a wide range of social and cultural activities in the afternoons, evenings, or at weekends. These are designed to be entertaining and to teach you more about French history, culture, and daily life. The activities are all held in French, so you’ll be able to maintain your immersion and put your new language skills into practice in real-life scenarios.

Many activities are available free of charge, though some may incur an additional fee to cover entrance and/or transportation costs. The exact schedule changes throughout the year but may include:

- Guided tours of the city
- Visits to the best of Montpellier’s attractions, such as the cathedral, the Mare Nostrum Aquarium, vineyards in the surrounding areas, and the planetarium
- Language exchange sessions with local residents
- Extra pronunciation and communication workshops
- French film screenings
- Evenings out with your class
- Food- and wine-tasting sessions
- Excursions to local points of interest such as Marseilles, Camargues, Nîmes, and Sète
- Plus seasonal activities available in the area

How to get there

Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport is around 10 minutes from the city centre by car and is accessible from many worldwide locations.

From here, you will need to make your own way to your lodging, unless you are booking homestay accommodation. In this case, your hosts will collect you on arrival from Montpellier Airport or train station.

Note: some students may need to fly into Carcassonne, which is around an hour and 45 minutes’ drive from Montpellier.

The course was excellent, it was above my level and I found it difficult to follow at first, easier later on. Sara our tutor was super and slowed the pace down a little.

This was superb Patrick and Michelle went out of there way to welcome us, we had stayed with them previously and nothing disappointed. They took us out, cooked us some nice meals. Bedrooms clean and comfortable, Thank you both!

The course was very well taught, and I found the teachers to be universally patient, helpful, and willing to challenge us. I should also add that the after-school activities were a blast, and not to be missed.

The accommodation was great, and my host family were very kind, and in fact quite eccentric too. I was pleased to find that they spoke exclusively in their native tongue, which was both a baptism of fire and the only way to have it! I learned as much from the various Francophones with whom I socialised as I did from the classes themselves.

Thanks for a wonderful trip, I look forward to doing it again soon!

The course was carefully graded and I felt I was at the right level. The course was challenging enough at the beginning to make me work but I didn't feel out of my depth. The challenges gradually increased as the two weeks went on which was great.

This was very French and close to the school in a wonderful 'hotel particulair'. My host, Anne Vincent, is quite a character and I will keep in touch with her. I enjoyed our evening conversations over dinner and I tried my best to follow the French TV that she encouraged me to watch.

This was a Club 50+ course and the excursions were good although sometimes there wasn't much time to see everything. I loved the cheese tasting and patisserie exploration. I was with a good crowd who wanted to learn French but also enjoy themselves and make the most of the opportunity. It was a quality experience!

I was put into a class that was the perfect level for me, but they still try to teach you more advanced french than A2 as and when necessary which I thought was good.

Montpellier is an excellent place to learn Frwnch as the city is big enough to have everything but not so big as to get lost or to have people treat one rudely. a host family is much preferable to residence, in my opinion, because of there being more French. The younger ones loved the residence. The school had the outings on Friday pm which worked fine for me but I would have liked to know this before hand.

The course was quite challenging for me, not having studied french for over 30years and we were not allowed to speak anything other than french in the class.

I also very much enjoyed a theatre trip arranged by the school in the evening. I went with my husband and son and we were all in different groups and we all had a great time and would certainly go again
