The school is good, but lacks a bit of organization. All the courses levels are not always available.

Montreal is not the ideal city to learn French because they primarily speak English or French and English have equal status.

Stairs were a challenge at first, but I got fitter, and I feel that after a month at the school, I was just starting to make some progress. It was certainly beneficial to me, as I now feel more confident to start and continue a conversation in French. I still need to do some more listening and responding practice though. I had a great time

Great teachers and style of teaching. Loved that the Intensive French program was divided into grammer class, comprehension and conversation.

Stay at "1 Rene-Levesque" appartment hotel - it is clean, economical, <5 min walk to the metro and just outside the hotel is the bus stop for the new express bus to the airport (costs only $7 - must have exact change in coins). You can also walk to the school if you want. Free wired internet - bring your own cable.
Other comments
The only thing I didn't like about the school is that the first day, I was asked to arrive at 9:30 am for the placement test. As a result, I missed the first grammer class that was 2 hours I paid for but didn't receive language instruction.

Aldan and Jonathan are the best teachers ever! Don't miss the chance to go to an English or French country! You can learn so much! It is cool to be confrontated with two different languages! But you should recognize that it is more useful to stay as long as you can! 2-3 weeks are too short! The activities were so much fun!

I came to the school with a few years of informal French training (audio programs, an adult beginner French class, etc.), but seemed to have a much lower proficiency than everyone in the school when I arrived in May. Seems like it is a good idea to come to the school with pretty good basic French knowledge already. And two weeks for five hours/day (what I did) was good for improvement but not nearly enough to become anywhere close to proficient!

The classes move quickly, but the material is not reinforced very well. That's OK if you're staying for months, but problematic for those who are only spending a few weeks at the school. Also, even though you technically can start any day, I'd advise anyone to inquire when the class cycles start. That way, true beginners aren't overwhelmed, and lower-level intermediates aren't bumped into the beginner's section because they enroll later in the cycle.
