I think the school may be too small to support the idea of starting at various levels on a given Monday. They seem to try to compensate by having students of different levels of experience and presenting the material in an unstructured manner. Personally, I don't think it works as well as being in a more structured program at the appropriate level.

This is not a course for beginners. I was in a class with others who had taken many courses, and the instructor spoke very rapidly in French, very frustrating to me as a beginner.

If you want to improve the level of language, it is worth to come for no less than 2 weeks, and it is even better for a month or more, especially when the programme is so interesting.

Only the first impression of the school is a little daunting. The entrance is pretty dirty and it strongly smells like urine.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It's a familiar school without many and many students, but most of them are from Switzerland. The twoo student residences are nearer the school than the guest families. It's easy to go to the sea with a tram, 30 minutes only. During the month of August, every Friday evening there is the Festival of wine!

I questioned my original host family placement with a single woman, requesting a family. I'm 63, ended up with a couple in their 60s, a dog and one other student, and was very happy there. The school was very accommodating in being open to changes and helping me out, also very patient.

Montpellier: really a beautiful city, but quite expensive!! Count that into your calculations! rnAccomodation: If you really want to speak French 24/7 it is absolutely best to live with a local family!! Living with other students often leads to speaking English or other languages.
