Student reviews & feedback

My course was great. I sat in a class with 10 people and the level of French was perfect to me. I also had the exam preparation, which was difficult but I also learned a lot in a week.

I had such a nice time at my host family. I’m staying in contact with the mother, she took good care of me.

School Staff

Course was good - learned a lot. Next time, I'll book up for more classes. Only downside was fellow students defaulting to English when stuck I guess.

Accommodation [Student residence] generally was fine but location is adjacent to noisey nightlife area. Friday and Sat nights were difficult to get some sleep.

Very happy overall, enjoyed the cooking classes as well.

School Staff

Really enjoyed it. Teachers were friendly and helpful.

Clean and conveniently located to the school.

School Staff

I had a incredible experience in Montpellier - the school was extremely well run and the classes were all very interesting. My internship following the course was also extremely interesting and useful and the people which organised this were very helpful when I was in France, although we had some difficulties prior to me going out there.

I was staying with a host family, Sylvie Gallopin, who was lovely. The family had 3 children and I was immediately welcomed into it with open arms. Sylvie was a fabulous cook and evidently loved having students to stay as she always put in the maximum effort to ensure that I was happy and that I was gaining as much as possible from my experience there.

School Staff

I really enjoyed my course and feel I have benefited alot from it.

My accommodation was fine. The room was big enough and had everything i needed.

School Staff

The small classes made for a friendly atmosphere. The visits were well-planned and enjoyable.

A lovely, friendly family, with typically French food.

School Staff

I had a great time and met a really diverse spectrum of people in lessons whose company I really enjoyed. The learning itself was great too. Really relevant and the teachers were always willing to help and constantly smiling even if you made stupid mistakes. My french is noticeably more confident thanks to this course. I had very simple student accommodation but it had everything I needed and I have no real complaints. In particular, I enjoyed my host and her boyfriend. Great people, very welcoming. I think my improvement in french is just as much down to conversations with her as my lessons. Really beautiful city. Lots to do, night life and otherwise. I think walking around talking to people and socialising is what helped my french most of all.
