Ich habe während vier Wochen den Kombikurs (Gruppenstunden am Morgen und Privatstunden an zwei Nachmittage pro Woche) gebucht. So war es für mich ideal, da ich in den den Privatstunden diejenigen Themen noch auffrischen konnten, welche am Morgen nicht behandelt wurden. Die Lehrpersonen waren sehr motiviert und die Übungsunterlagen gut. Allerdings wurden immer wieder Klassen aus verschiedenen Sprachlevels zusammengelegt und innerhalb der Klasse gab es riesige Unterschiede bezüglich Level. Dies war sehr mühsam, da es so bezüglich Grammatikunterricht nicht wirklich ein System gab und für die einen war es etwas repetitiv, für die anderen war es zu komplex. Die Ausflüge von der Schule waren super, Jeremie macht einen super Job und erzählt einem auf den Ausflügen viele interessante Dinge!Montpellier als Reiseziel kann ich sehr empfehlen. Es ist eine Studentenstadt mit vielen Konzerten, Möglichkeiten für Tanzkurse (Tango, Salsa, Lindy Hopp), Bars und Restaurants (Infos jeweils in der Gazette Zeitung). Zum Strand gelangt man sehr einfach mit dem Tram und dann noch ein Stück zu Fuss. Es gibt auch in der ganzen Stadt die Möglichkeit von Velomagg Fahrräder zu mieten. Auch gibt es in der Umgebung um Montpellier sehr viel zu entdecken (leider braucht man aber für einige Ausflüge ein Auto).Die Gegend ist wirklich wunderschön, auch in Herbst! Kann es wirklich weiterempfehlen! Kein Lehrbuch, nur mit Blätter. Ich hatte ein Airbnb selber organisiert, da ich unbedingt im Zentrum sein wollte. Ausflüge waren super! Cool wären noch mehr Ausflüge mit Wanderungen.

The school was VERY centrally situated which was great. The teacher, Carole, was superb - I was very lucky to have been allocated to her class; my flat had “good news”/“bad news” - it was centrally situated, 1 minute from the school, but was VERY noisy from the restaurants below, and the flat itself could have done with improvement eg with the microwave, a door handle on the door inside and outside (as you had to open and shut it with the key), the saucepan handles were falling off, but it was fun living right in the centre thanks. Very welcoming staff and very friendly too. The trips were good too. My teacher, Carole, was superb! Good and varied trips with knowledgeable guides. Many thanks for arranging a great course for me.

Im Gebäude Nr 34 befindet sich mitten im Gang eine Treppenstufe nach oben und später eine nach unten. Am ersten Kurstag hielt ich beim Verlassen von Klassenraum 11 Ausschau nach dem Damen-WC, bemerkte die Stufe nach unten nicht und stürzte auf den linken Arm und den Rücken, sodass ich für mehrere Wochen behindert im Gehen und Bewegen sein werde. Die Situation ist fahrlässig-gefährlich. Das Studio ist gut für junge Studierende geeignet, einfach, ohne grossen Komfort, aber alles Nötige ist vorhanden. Ich konnte die enge, gefährliche, verwahrloste Wendeltreppe am Anreisetag mit Koffer in den 2. Stock kaum bewältigen (am Abreisetag half mir Martine), nach dem Unfall war es noch schwieriger. Ausserdem ist es tags und nachts in der Umgebung sehr laut.

MONTPELLIER! What can I say about my stay in this big town? I have only good memories of it. The day I arrived and met my host family, who welcomed me like a member of family. The people from throughout the world that I met during the course, and all of the beautiful friendships that grew in such a short time. The classes in the mornings, which were never boring, and the brilliant teachers. The lunches with friends and the busy afternoons: sightseeing in Montpelier, beach, shopping, cinema, exploring the surrounding villages... and spending the evenings with friends, enjoying the nice city atmosphere with people from all over the world! Every Friday in summer, the city fills with people, who drink local wine and eat local specialties. It was an amazing experience which I hope to repeat. Awesome memories and friendships. A wonderful French-learning summer!

My name is Fabián and I came to Montpellier to learn French. I am very happy with the school (IEF): I am learning the language pretty fast and teachers are very professional. I met many people from all over the world; there is a good nationality mix! The school is in the heart of Montpellier: public transports are very convenient and the surroundings are full of bars and restaurants where I can have lunch. Montpellier offers many hotspots, such as the Arc de Triomphe, Place de l’Europe, the Botanical Gardens, Place de la Comédie, the historical centre and the mountain of Saint-Loup. I highly recommend visiting all these places! The city is full of tourists and young people – it’s been an unforgettable experience so far!

Learning French at the Institut Européen de Français was a great experience. I refreshed my French and got ready for my third Erasmus term. Classes are interactive and practical. Life in Montpellier is quiet, but – as it’s a student town – there is always something to do.
