Who is this French course for?

This 50+ standard French course requires at least an A2 level, and is perfectly suited for learners who want to combine studying with pleasure, in a context where learners are pampered for 2 weeks during their French Language Immersion with other people sharing commonalities.

Our French school in the heart of Montpellier opens its doors to multiple experiences in context, thanks to the proximity of our school to all shops, cafés and restaurants. Once your daily standard French course is over, the practice of French is right there for you, thanks to our linguistic immersion programs.

The size of the class group invites to conviviality and leaves space to let to each one of you speak, which is ideal to make new acquaintances in a short time. Studying French in France favours you to meet French people, but also other people sharing your residential French course, who have the same wish as you to discover and go through all the mysteries of French and France.

The 50+ French Course is a good balance between class time for accompanied communication, and informal exchanges during trips and outings while sparing time to work at your own pace.
