Sunny Montpellier is a lively university city and a fantastic choice for a French school trip!

This is particularly the case if your students are preparing for exams, as we are able to arrange language lessons and carefully selected host family accommodation here, for total French immersion.

Our French language school in Montpellier is located in the city centre, close to the Place de la Comédie. All teachers are fully-qualified native speakers who will tailor the lesson content to meet your requirements. 

Whatever your group’s level, you will, of course, be able to use the lessons to improve and consolidate their vocabulary. In fact, lessons will be tailored to meet your specific curriculum and requirements, which will be discussed with the language school in advance of your trip.

Many of our GCSE groups choose to use this opportunity to revise important or particularly tricky grammar points and, of course, to work on their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. While doing so, your students will also be able to work on their understanding of instructions and questions and will develop their ability to respond and provide opinions on a variety of subjects – all excellent preparation for their exams.

A-Level groups will, of course, be able to work on similar things, but they may also want to take this opportunity to develop their understanding of the French culture and national identity, as well as learn more about French social conventions. They could also spend some time developing their understanding of French literature and film.

And, in addition, your students will enjoy a fantastic cultural activities programme which will encourage them to practise using their French with native speakers. As will staying with carefully selected host families, all of whom have a clean police record.
