Testimonials

I loved this experience I was able to make many friends, get to know many places and different cultures. The lady I had only spoke French that helped me to improve faster. The first week was difficult to communicate but after a week in I.L.A. I was able to talk to her better. The first month I was alone, but the second month I had a roommate with her and I was able to practice French even more. The cultural differences are that almost everyone smokes, you walk around the squares you use a lot of bicycles or trains, you hardly use cars, at night everything lights up and in the south of France you greet each other with three kisses, everyone I met was very nice. Learning French in Montpellier was very convenient because you can visit incredible cities, you can also go to Spain. I improved a lot learning the language in France and now I can speak with more confidence. I liked that my friends taught me some words in their languages. Montpellier is a city of students, that makes it easy to make friends and practice the language.

Zoe truly had a nice experience at Montpellier, her host family took good care of her. They are educated, attentive and kind. The only two things: Zoe was not able to switch to a higher level class during the first week because the higher level was full, and the host family is a little far from the school ( which we understand both). But overall, she really enjoyed the classes there and had a wonderful time at School and with the host family. Thank you very much for your effort and help to make this happen and everything runs smoothly. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

Montpellier is an adorable city! I've fallen in love with la place de la comedie! My friend likes me too! We went three weeks to improve our French and to change some airs. The Bélanger family treated us very well and the room was clean and welcoming. I highly recommend this program if you are looking for French courses with accommodation at an affordable price.
