French immersion program in Montpellier

Our French courses in Montpellier provide an exceptional environment to study French in “la belle France provinciale”.

Montpellier – ranked second city in France for good-value living

Montpellier is the capital city of the Hérault department in the south of France. Its urban area has a population of 590 000 people with one third being students from major universities and higher education colleges. Montpellier is located in the Occitanie region which was created in 2016 from the former French regions of Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées.

Nicknamed the “gifted city”, it has all the ingredients for a pleasant and exciting cultural experience. It has a good climate, unspoiled countryside, top-notch culture, ancient traditions and history, a vibrant street life, and the sophistication of the Parisian architecture.

Those who enrol in our French courses in Montpellier have many opportunities to discover the huge cultural and environmental diversity of Occitanie. Being such a vast region, visitors are spoilt for choice with cities, medieval villages, mountains and gorges, coastal sea treasures, and stunning countryside.

Occitanie is home to 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites which cover historical sites, mountain ranges, and breathtaking views. The sites include the Canal du Midi, the Causses and the Cévennes, the fortified city of Carcassonne, The Cirque of Gavarnie in the Pyrenees, the Pont du Gard, Vauban’s fortifications in the villages of Villefranche-de-Conflent and Mont-Louis, and the episcopal city of Albi.

Delicious local products

Students who study French in Montpellier get the opportunity to discover and taste numerous succulent local products (over 250 products in Occitanie!).

The choice goes from a large variety of wines and spirits, cakes & pastries, fruit preserves, oysters and Mediterranean fish, olive oil, rice from Camargue, essential oils, exquisite handcrafted cheeses, to lots of organic products …

Total immersion with French courses in Montpellier

Our courses consist of a French cultural immersion including half-board family accommodation, 24 one-to-one lessons per week, lunches with your teacher from Monday to Thursday and a large choice of cultural activities.

Our French courses in Montpellier take place in a « mini-school » situated at the teacher’s place in the centre of Montpellier in a private house with a garden.

This program is quite unique as it gives you some interesting options to practice French with local French people during the lessons. For example, you may meet an artist who will show you his studio and talk about his artwork. A social worker who will talk about welfare issues in some parts of the city. A local architect who will talk about newly built areas of Montpellier. A local Chef with whom you will experience some cooking. A French speaking African student who will talk about the connection and the relationship between France and Africa.

These “real-life” experiences are then part of the next day class from the point of view of culture, civilisation, vocabulary, grammar, written and oral skills.

This One-to-One customised program provides a well-balanced, constant, and enriching exposure to the French language and culture. It is flexible, personable, and lead to very rewarding learning outcomes.
