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.

It's big enough that you don't end up in classes that are too hard or too easy. The lessons were thoughtful, the teacher was lively and engaging. We had real discussions in French.

The day trips are great - sign up for the less expensive ones in town early!
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.

Not all classes take place in the rue Foch. Don't be late on first Monday, otherwise you may need to find the Impasse Barnabé location on your own.
