Es war alles super toll bis auf die schlechte Erreichbarkeit des Zentrums. Ohne Bus waren es 35 Minuten zu Fuss durch weniger sichere Quartiere und der Bus fuhr nicht mehr nach 10 Uhr. Möchte man also ausgehen oder von entfernteren Orten zurückkehren, wurde dies zum Problem. Team ist sympathisch und kompetent. Mit dem Bus hat man 25 min, aber dieser fährt nur bis 10 Uhr und auch nur in der Hochsaison. Danach muss man mit 35 min zu Fuss rechnen. Die Exkursionen musste man zwar extra bezahlen, aber anlässlich der Qualität und der Ausflugsziele ist es das Geld wert.

La estancia ha estado muy bien; por los compañeros de piso (que no por los propietarios), el profesor que tuve 3/4 semanas que he estado y la ciudad y la gente que conocí allí. A mejorar: ¿es diferente el método utilizado en las clases al que se podría tener en una escuela en España? Creo que no. Se podría también distinguir entre la gente que buscamos un objetivo profesional y gente muy joven que busca una estancia más lúdica.Mejorable la climatización de las clases Lo mejor: los primeros compañeros de cohabitación.A mejorar:Los utensilios de cocina. Muchas cacerolas y sartenes, pero la mayoría oxidadas. Podrían hacer inventario y renovar.La ropa de cama. Solo un juego, y de tejido similar al plástico, nada transpirable, y ha hecho mucho calor... Lo peor es que, el primer día tuve que lavarlas, pues olían mal: se supone que lavaron las fundas, pero la almohada y el interior de la colcha olían a sudor.Los dueños, de vacaciones, mandaron a una persona a preparar la habitación de una nueva compañera. SIN AVISAR. Esta persona estuvo sola en la casa, pues no había nadie. Esto es un delito aquí y allíMi habitación era la única de las 4 sin cerradura para poder dejarla cerrada en mi ausencia.He indicado que recomiendo esta opción porque entiendo que habrá experiencias mejores a la mía. La edad media es muy joven. Los de determinada edad nos tenemos que buscar los planes por nuestra cuenta.

La segunda semana de mi estancia, pedi que me subieran de nivel, ya que toda la gramatica que estabamos dando ya la habia estudiado anteriormente y me parecia muy facil, por lo tanto no tengo la sensacion de haber aprendido nada nuevo en la aula. En cambio, el vocabulario ha sido interesante. Y por ultimo, la prueba de nivel, personalmente, creo que deberia tener distintos apartados en losnque se evalue distintos criterios como la gramatica, vocabulario, expresion escrita y comprension oral, para a si poner a cada estudiante donde realmente corresponde.

Claudia Masso Martin

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.

Host family
The best way to immerse yourself fully in the French language and culture is to live with a host family. Discover the ways and customs of the French from the inside and practise what you have learned in class in total immersion. Living around 10 to 20 minutes from the school, you will stay in a single room with half-board provided.

Shared apartment
Located around 10 to 20 minutes from the school, the apartments generally accommodate two to three students or locals each. Each student has a single room and shares the kitchen, bathroom and living room with the others. This is an inexpensive option which will also allows you to meet other international students.

The school offers numerous cultural activities which will allow you to meet other foreign students whilst practising your French in a stimulating atmosphere. Delight your taste buds with the region's food and wines, broaden your mind with the wonders of the area's heritage, museums and surrounding scenery. Why not also discover the French culture through its films, theatre or even opera? All of these activities will help you develop your French in context.
