A residential French course is a not only a French language adventure but also a cultural one. During your French immersion in France at our French language school in Montpellier, you will be able to choose between various activities and excursions that are organised all year round. Some are very easy to get to by tram from the town centre, as for example the famous sea aquarium “Mare Nostrum” at the Odysseum shopping centre in Montpellier.
If you go off during your French language stay on the excursion to the Aquarium in Montpellier, you will realise that it is in fact much more than just a simple aquarium, it is a tour of the world’s oceans during which you get to see the rich diversity of marine life. We just need to get the tram from the town centre to the Odysseum shopping centre in Montpellier where you will be able to explore the marvellous world of the “Mare Nostrum” Aquarium.
Learn French in Montpellier is the best way to combine a French language vacation with fantastic discoveries. The Montpellier Aquarium offers you an incredible journey into new worlds during your language stay.
Throughout the years, the aquarium has become one of the most preferred tourist attractions in this part of the South of France. The “Mare Nostrum” aquarium has established itself as one of the most prominent visits in the region. There is a 2-hour visit during which you will be able to see 460 species of sea animals, a real sight to behold!
Start your unforgettable under-sea adventure by discovering all the riches of the Mediterranean, then head out to the Atlantic Ocean, South Africa with its king penguins. Dive right into the depths of the Indian Ocean and contemplate the majestic ballet performed by the stingrays in one of the biggest tanks in France. Take a look at the multi-coloured fish from the coral lagoon and the lush vegetation of the Amazon forest. You suddenly become sea and ocean explorers! This is a wonderful way to relax and learn French during your French language stay in France.
Let yourself be swept away in this thrilling exploration right in the heart of sea life and end your trip with a visit to the “Mission Odysée” exhibition: an adventure that will carry you right to the heart of an underwater station for exploration and meet the impressive giant octopus! You will also get to experience the innovative sea storm stimulator and X-plorer as part of a 3D adventure.
The aquarium has many animations to offer with a few surprises like for example feeding the penguins, sharks or even a dive into the heart of the ocean. What an exciting way to enjoy your spare time during your French study at our French language immersion school in Montpellier.
Before leaving the aquarium, have a look around the shop where you can find carefully selected objects both for children and adults who are passionate about the ocean. A great way to leave you with a lasting impression of your language stay in the South of France!
