"My stay in the student residence was great. I wanted to have an independent accommodation for my French immersion - in walking distance from school and I needed internet in my room. I also wanted to meet many people from all over the world. The student residence catered for all. I had a very comfortable, clean room with private bathroom and I could cook my own meals. There was free internet in the room so I could use my computer to keep in touch with my family and friends. There are students from so many different countries at the residence and you make friends very quickly. The residence is very central ; I could walk to school and all places of interest in Montpellier. Bars, cafés, restaurants, cinemas and shops are just a few minutes' walk. I stayed 6 weeks; my French course was excellent, great teachers. Montpellier is a brilliant place for a language study. People at ILA are so friendly; I will never forget my French language course at ILA Montpellier. Thanks to everybody at ILA."
