What our students said about Montpellier

Rating: 4/5

4.0

The city is beautiful, with a small old center. You can inspect everything in 3-4 days. There are two buses to the beach nearby. The beach is gorgeous, better than in Nice, very similar to the beaches in Goa, in India, where there is a place for everyone. The sea is calm. There are a lot of strange people (young Frenchmen) in the city on the streets, such as homeless people with dogs, asking for money. Sometimes you get the impression of a slightly dirty city. I was not returning home late and had no problems.

Well the school location is Amazing, just in the heart of the city in the way that I've imagined, surrounded by very French 18 century Palace Particulaire that I love. Public transport to get into the school from where I was living was great and very efficient.

Climate?! Is anyone to blame? It was a little hot, but I think it was a uniquely hot week. I might find a place closer to water in the future.

In summer, it's hot. However, you enjoy the life in the South of France. You live under the clear blue sky every day!! I really enjoyed it.

The activities, excursions and how the school made it easy for us to make friends.
Great school, a bit too many anglophones though. That makes it harder to speak French outside of school.

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.
Thanks for such a great experience. I rate the school 10 out of 10 because it was great and I loved the school and the atmosphere from my first day to my last day. Super thanks to everyone that has made it so enjoyable....

My host family and my teacher were amazing (although I was lucky because not all my friends had such great experiences with theirs), there were many free excursions which were fun, and the weather was incredible.
Some of the other students wanted their teachers to speak more English with them to help them understand but LSF insists on only speaking French. For this reason, it may be difficult for total beginners to learn French at LSF.
