French in Montpellier - LSF

Why study French in Montpellier?



Located on the doorstep of the wild wetlands of Camargue, Montpellier is a gorgeous natural region stretching across the southwest coast of France. It's a haven of serenity, with an extremely relaxed atmosphere and beautifully preserved architecture. Founded in medieval times as a farm and birthplace of La Marseillaise, this once-sleepy university town - now home to 80 000 students which make up 30% of the population - will succeed in charming your senses, taste-buds and eyes in every possible way.

Montpellier is a thriving southern town a-buzz with cultural happenings, flavoursome southern cuisine and multicultural energy centered around the dazzling white-paved pedestrian expanse of the Place de la Comédie, crowned by the Opera House and the place for people-watching and enjoying one leisurely drink after another. Elsewhere in town, l'Ecusson district's underground electronica concerts, art house cinema and quirky boutiques will also keep you entertained.

Montpellier is a well-kept French secret, and only a hop, skip and a jump away from beautiful white sandy beaches. It's a fantastic place to make progress in French while experiencing authentic Languedoc culture.


Our partner school, LSF, is located just a few minutes' walk to the famous Place de la Comédie with bus and tram stops just 3 minutes away on foot. LSF is now revolutionising its teaching methods thanks to new tools on the cutting edge of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for Education. During their stay, LSF students can now enjoy a full pack of tools and services: the school blog, an internal social network for students and alumni, and a Moodle platform with extra classes.

The student body is multicultural and diverse and lessons focus on intercultural exchange as well as language learning.
