Why learn French in Montpellier ?
- Montpellier is the #2 destination in France for french courses after Paris. Without a doubt the capital city of France is beautiful but Montpellier offers two things that Paris doesn’t :
- the beach and the sun !! The sea is only a few kilometers away. It’s easy to reach by transit and bike ride
- Montpellier is a young, dynamic and multicultural city. Almost 50% of the people living in Montpellier is under 30.
- Its mediterranean climate is temperate with around 300 sunny days per year, and an average temperature of 15°c.
- Montpellier has been voted greenest city over 200,000 inhabitants
- Its size : It’s easy to move around with its 4 trams, shared bicyles and its pedestrian only neighborhoods and city center
- It’s joie de vivre : cafés and restaurants are everywhere. Come sit down at a « terasse » and enjoy a nice fresh drink while admiring heritage buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries !
- Its culture. There are lots of museums, exhibits, music concerts, festivals and events in Montpellier all year round.

When can I go ?
The school opens every day of the year and Montpellier is beautiful no matter the season. In the winter, the climate is nice enough for a long enjoyable walk along the quiet and deserted beach or in the vineyards nearby. In the Summer, if suntanning by the mediterranean sea is not your thing, you can choose to take a dip in one of the lakes nearby or stay cool in one of the many museums, or air conditionned building of the school. All our classrooms have air conditionning, we also have a nice patio by our ressource centre where you can study outside in the shade with your friends from school or enjoy a nice break from studying. Many excursions are planned all year round.
Specific starting dates for beginners are published here : https://www.accentfrancais.com/prices
Where will I be staying ?
At Accent Français we have the accommodation that suits your needs. You can stay with a host family (this is the most popular choice). All our families are chosen with the greatest care. This is the perfect way to find out what makes french people special, how they live and the traditions they respect. Cherry on the cake, you can also choose how many meals you want to share with your family if any (half board or full board are available).
If you would rather be autonomous you can also choose to stay in an independant studio, a studio or flat in a tourist or student residence or a room on campus for a more economical option. We will also help you book a hotel if this is your desired choice. No matter your budget, we have the accommodation for you.
