French school in Montpellier: Accent Français

4.2

Rating: 4.2/5.0

2 rue de Verdun - 34000 Montpellier - see on map

What we like about the school

  • Winner of the STM Star Awards five years in a row.
  • Apartment - shared / Residence accommodation very close to school
  • Excellent nationality mix. No student nationality makes up more than 15% of students.
  • Free assistance in finding flats for long-term students.
  • E-learning platform.

What we dislike about the school

  • Younger students should consider that the average age of students at this school is significantly higher than at most other schools.
  • Lessons are 45 minutes long, which is shorter than in other schools.

Location: Accent Francais is in the heart of the historical centre of Montpellier, a few steps from Place de la Comédie, and in close quarters to the city’s tourist attractions. The school is only 15km away from the city’s picturesque natural beaches. Students can look forward to enjoying some of the world’s largest vineyards along with places like the Pope’s palace, Avignon, Nimes, Pont du Guard and tons of naturally scenic locales.

Travelling around: The school has an excellent location within the city, with a tram station practically opposite their entrance and plenty of bus stops scattered around the streets nearby. The Montpellier Saint-Roch train station is a short walk from the school, whose line stretches across the Mediterranean coast.

Course selection: There are state of the art facilities and a robust curriculum for all courses at Accent Francais. Students can take general French courses as well as more intensive higher education courses for those aspiring for university education. In the summer months there are a selection of junior courses, for teenagers. A holistic approach to education is taught at the school, and this is reflected in their courses on food, cooking, volunteering as well as internship opportunities that help students deepen their understanding of the French language in a real world setting.

Additional information: Excursions and after class activities are available year round at Accent Francais, so students can interact with other students at the school as well as experience the diversity of the surrounding area.
  • The language school Accent Français was founded in Montpellier, France in 1998.
  • Legal name / parent company: Accent Français SARL
  • Tax registration ID: FR75423636851

What students liked about Accent Français, Montpellier
Best thing about this school - apart from it being in Montpellier, which is a great town, beautiful, relaxed and friendly - was the teachers, who are excellent and very sympathique. The other people in my class (B2 level) were great too, and their average level of French was very good, which I think must have been at least in part due to the quality of the teaching at this school, which several of them had been attending for some time. There is a fairly strong emphasis on speaking, which I liked a lot because that is the hardest of the four macro skills to master, and it's certainly the one I needed most help with. Writing is not neglected either.

Other comments: Only problem here was the organisation of the accommodation: I had requested "Chez l'habitant, chambre avec accès cuisine" but was placed in a shared appartment (collocation) with other foreign students, who all spoke English to me. But the school's admin staff were very responsive and quickly placed me in a more suitable home. On the whole, the school seemed quite well organised. I was particularly impressed by their emphasis on students being punctual and making sure that classes always start on time.
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.
I had an amazing experience.. As I've mentioned before everything was much better than I thought. It's not very easy to go to a new country where you don't know what you will find. The support that I got from the school staff and my teachers was great.

My host family was excellent. We spoke every evening during dinner, which I really appreciated. I spoke more at home than in class. The teacher was good, but not the best I have ever had. I also liked the cooking classes.
