Get information regarding the meals when staying with a host family, so you do not experience the same as I did (see separate inform).
Other comments
In my opinion, the written course material is insufficient and deficient. Copy of a copy, front size, not enough space to write down the answers. It was unsatisfying that as a senior group, we had so many levels in one groups. I can definitely see the financial benefit for the school. The tuition fee was too high. Jean Paul's knowledge is extensive but it did bother me that he incessantly had to show his knowledge of foreign languages. I resisted because this was part of a French course. I am not against exceptions, of course!

The school is located in the heart of Montpellier, that is always ideal. The building is old and nice too, but classrooms vary a lot, some are nice and big, but others are very small and uncomfortable. Teachers were all nice, they have a lot of activities, some are free to join, like playing petanque, watching movies, even (simple) dance lessons. On the weekends the city trips where a bit overpriced for me so I did not join that.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Montpellier is realy the best place to study French, probably because it is a student city with some universities. It is not too big and it has a nice atmosphere. For people who like wine it is perfect, a lot of nice winebars, and in the summer they have a wine festival every Friday where you can try local wines for a cheap price. For eating I recommend the "Flunch", it's very cheap and pretty good, and you can always get some more. For accomodation I recommend you try searching for something yourself on the internet - like a student room in the summer months. That's what I did and I was lucky in finding a good room in the centre. Some classmates had to travel a long way to school, try to avoid that.

Thanks Joost, your comments are making us eager to go ahead !! We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and all hope you are taking care of your French :-)

The minimum stay for reaching a godd language level: three weeks; every friday during the summer period there's a little nightly market called "Les estivales" where you can taste different kind of wine.

Montpellier is a wonderful town, the southern French is easier to understand and to speak, there's the sea, it-s warm but it's always windy at the same time, so it's really enjoyable!

What a wonderful expereince! I am a professional from the US and there were so many great things to say. The city of Montpellier is a beautiful smaller European city with much to offer- Opera, museums and close to day-trips to regional historic cities. Though small, Montpellier is surprisingly cosmopolitan in its outlook and is a very welcoming place, especially for someone who has never experienced a different culture. The school was also very helpful, extremely friendly, and the classes were very well-taught. I only stayed a week, but it was worth it and would have liked to have stayed longer.

Wow Helen, thanks a mil for your feedback !! Montpellier is still a great place to live and we are always glad to help :-)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
don't miss the beach (la grande-motte, la grande traverse), check out the bars barberousse, the rock store (not before 02.00), mi barrio (winebar), they are sometimes some salsaparties at the beach (really nice), visit pont du diable and saint guillhem de desert, also pont du gard and avignon, at the trainstation in montpellier you can rent a car, you can also rent some scooters at several places

I stayed for 10 weeks in Monpellier, in my opinion Accent Francais is the best school there. the people are very friendly and willing to offer their help. most of the teachers are very motivated and comprehensive. You will meet spanish, german, japanese, australian, dutch, dannish, swiss, english, american, columbian people there. During some weeks i found they were too many german, spanish and austrian students there but in general its a nice mix. Montpellier is a very nice town! go and check it out yourself!!

If you are a complete beginner, all instructions are in French, including grammar lessons. If you know basic French, your French will improve quickly because of the total immersion.
