My two weekly preparatory sessions for the DALF C1 exam were very efficient as well as the two weekly private conversation classes, where I got the corrections to my errors from the teacher after each class.
Other comments
Pls note that the DALF C1 preparation program (5 weeks) mostly consists of standard C1 classes (3½h each morning), most of which is conversation and vocabulary. The grammar part is left to the student's independent use of the school's eLearning system, which makes the corrections automatically.

Other comments
They do an excellent job with host families. They give you a photo of the room and the person and describe their space and personality. I've had ones where it was clear it was just for the money. Everyone I talked to had a really positive experience - lots of good language practice and very nice places to stay.

The tuition is far from excellence. The reason I say this is that it is not uncommon to find students of different levels in the same class ... I guess it's one of the problems of private schools.
Other comments
For a Spaniard with an average salary, studying at lsf is expensive. On the other hand, even if you are in Montpellier, if you want to rent a studio through the school, they do not let you see it in advance, you just pay directly. Focused on business, but they work well thanks to the young students and the good atmosphere among teachers. It is a better option for those without money restrictions. If you decide to book lsf, I recommend you to find your own accommodation (eg. RBnb) and visit the apartment beforehand.

The staff was very good; committed, competent and always ready to assist the students. I really liked that there were evaluations at the end of each week. It gave me more confidence in my level of language acquisition.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Take coffee in "Green Coffee" on Place Édouard Adam. Get out to the sea by free Hérault buses. Walk a lot. Really a lot. Go to bars on Friday nights. Don't forget to buy food on Friday - because on the weekends all shops and markets are closed. But there are different programs in museums on those days.

It is rather cheap school and it's so comfortable and fun to learn in it.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Not really.
Other comments
I have only two complaints. One was that the building I was in the morning classes of the first week was under remodeling and a disaster area. I was happy this was dealt with the next week. And I also wish there was more power for the professers to move people in and out of class. For the 2 week, my morning class was outstanding. The afternoon class had some students that were not interested in learning. It was a shame.

In order to eat I had to go to the restaurant and food was pretty much always the same. You can only choose between a main dish and a dessert or main dish and a drink. The pancake shop was nice but they only had pancakes. The other restaurant which was listed was annualy close, they could have adviced another one. It embarrased me. The residence service should always be opened.
