Since you already made your placement test online prior to arrival, you will be able to start your French language course in Montpellier in the morning of your first day. You will therefore not lose any of your valuable French language course due to a placement test and evaluation taken only locally. We ask our students to come once only at 8:00 am on their first day to take part in a presentation of our French language school in Montpellier.
During this presentation you will receive our welcome pack including the ILA guide, a map of Montpellier and the ILA folder. The ILA guide contains many useful tips on the day to day life of our French language immersion school and educational organization as well as useful information on Montpellier for shopping, spare time activities, restaurants, excursions, useful addresses and telephone numbers etc. After the presentation you will be introduced to your teacher and start your French language course.
In the afternoon of your first day at our French language immersion school there will be an orientation tour of Montpellier showing you the beauty of Montpellier but also providing you with additional practical information.
