JUNE / JULY / AUGUST
14-17 YEARS OLD : SUMMER FRENCH COURSE JUNE/JULY/AUGUST
Montpellier is the ideal destination for a French language course for teenagers. The city centre is mainly pedestrianised, public transport is excellent, accommodation is close to the school and shops and the beaches are within easy reach.
This is the perfect choice for enjoying fun activities in a safe environment whilst learning French.
We recommend the Accent Français French summer course which includes a programme of activities and excursions ; but you may prefer the exam preparation programme (Bac, Abitur, A-level…), or then again the French + E-sport ou French + English programmes.
For families travelling together to France we can organise lessons for all members of the family : children (9-13), teenagers (14+) and adults (18+).
Transfers: At Accent Français the student is picked up by the host family on arrival at Montpellier airport or railway station, at no extra cost. We can also arrange payable transfers by taxi from other regional airports (Marseille, Carcassonne, Nîmes, Béziers …).

French lessons : the programmes focus on the following basic language areas : reading, writing, comprehension, with particular emphasis placed on oral expression and pronunciation. The subjects studied and the rhythm of the activities are specially adapted to young learners.

Accommodation : We recommend you stay with a host family, as this allows you to be fully immersed in the French way of life in a safe environment. All of our families are vetted and provide us with a criminal record extract (‘extrait de casier judiciaire’). Your child can stay in the same family as his/her friend(s) if requested, and travel into school with them. Families are carefully selected according to their location- from 5 minutes on foot from the school to 35 minutes away by tram- and for the quality of their welcome. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover a new culture and meet new friends !

The activity programme :
Authorisations to go out are checked by our activity leaders and are subject to parental control. Students automatically have the right to go out alone when lessons end at 12.15 until dinner time at 19.00. Students must take part in all activities and excursions which are scheduled on the programme. For the evenings, after dinner, there are two possibilities : 1) the student is not allowed to go out alone in the evenings ; 2) the student is allowed to go out alone in the evening but only after 20.30 and up to 22.00, when he/she MUST be back in the host family. Parents will be informed immediately if a student does not respect these rules.
