Discover the reviews of the students who have come to LSF Montpellier in the last few months.
L'équipe de l'école est très accueillante et professionnelle, ainsi que le système en ligne d'activités supplémentaires est vraiment génial pour le progrès solide de l'élève. Doux mois de juillet que j'y ai vécus, une expérience inoubliable et je la recommande fortement à tous et à toutes.
The staff is remarkable in their diligence and are willing to assist with anything they possibly can. The teachers are engaging and provide an amazing atmosphere for learning French!
The efficacy of the teaching at LSF is unparalleled to any other language school I have attended! After completing my 8-week course at LSF, I have been able to return to school and pursue a major in the French language.
I have never regretted my decision in choosing LSF. They go above and beyond in creating an immersive experience. The extracurricular activities that the school hosts are extraordinary and create a real sense of community for everyone attending, regardless of their country of origin.
When I came to France I did not know how to say anythung in French except "hello, and do you speak English?" but with the incredible, friendly and patient teachers I ended up with level C1. Their style of teaching is wonderful, learning the grammer rules in a standard class format and then playing some games to get us to really use and oractibg what we had just learnt.
If you want to learn French I implore you to go to LSF.
À LSF, j'ai eu l'une des meilleures années de ma vie (je n'ai que 22 ans, donc ce n'est pas encore une vie trop longue, mais LSF était incroyable.)
Quand je suis arrivé en France, je ne savais pas dire quoi que ce soit en français sauf "bonjour, et tu parles anglais?" mais avec les professeurs incroyables, sympathiques et patients, je me suis retrouvé avec le niveau C1. Leur style d'enseignement est merveilleux, apprenant les règles de grammaire dans un format de classe standard, puis jouant à des jeux pour nous permettre d'utiliser et d'orienter réellement ce que nous venons d'apprendre.
Si vous voulez apprendre le français je vous implore d'aller au LSF.
The teachers are super and really care about their students. They also have an online platform, which I wasn’t able to find at other schools. It has homework, videos and interactive pages that provides a more in-depth look at the concepts and allow you to practice more.
I have found lifelong friends who share my love and passion for the language and I have fallen in love with the city that will always hold a place in my heart.
If you are looking look no further, this is the place for you!
Other than that, the rest of the students were very nice as well as the locals from the city.
I recommend it with all of my heart and free for any questions or hesitations if you will have any!
Avec beaucoup de activités, professionnels incroyables aussi 🙂
well structured class work to suit all levels of ability. Lots of opportunity to ask questions
Must say though, the Thursday assignments were super arduous (stretching assignments). Would I do it again? Over and over again. August was a perfect month too for walking around in Montpellier and other French cities.
I returned to LSF for a second time this May 2018. Every teacher was excellent and easily engaged all of us in the many interesting class activities. This language school is outstanding in every way, and I truly have no suggestions for improvement!! This time I also did individual lessons and they, along with the group lessons, really helped to improve my French fluency. In addition to the teaching staff, everyone in the office is always friendly and helpful no matter what you need from them! I will definitely be returning to LSF!! Thanks for such a great three weeks!!
Very modern teachers - we spoke and listened to tons and tons of French!! The classes were very engaging and never boring. All three of my teachers were extremely kind, helpful, knowledgeable, professional and FUN!! I learned so much French. My home stay experience was excellent also. Right in the center of town and the family was very kind and spoke lots of French with me. I did have friends who had rather long bus rides to the school, so I would inquire about that before booking. LSF definitely exceeded all of my expectations, and if I ever do another language school experience, it will definitely be with LSF!
My 'one to one' class began on 18 mardi. Cloé, my instructor, was very supportive and patient with me. In that first session, she directed my attention to the center of the chalk board. She asked me to speak as many words as I could in français. As I began to recall and speak the French words that I could remember, she would write each français mot around the center of the chalk board. Voilà, French words began to appear on the board that startled me in an affirmative learning manner. I appreciated this teaching methodology that Cloé used with me because it opened up a larger world for me.
Cloé also guided me in setting up mon - pendant la semaine. I found this teaching methodology especially helpful in saying the successive hours and minutes of the day. It also gave me the opportunity to speak the verbs (Aller, Avoir, Boire, Commencer, Dormir, Etre, Mettre, & Venir). Obviously, I struggled greatly with these verbs. However, that is the point, you learn to speak (a language) (by) speaking it - loqui loquendo discitur.
LSF also offered many opportunities for students to attend cultural events, guided tours, & cinematic events. I took advantage of the guided tour to Avignon & thoroughly enjoyed l'expérience. I offer a grateful merci to Laetitia who was my hostess for my homestay half-board. She provided a number of quite helpful suggestions for visiting museums etc. in Montpellier.
I had two people asked me why I would do such a thing as taking a French language course in France? I live in the U. S.A. In other words, why are you spending you hard earned money on such an experience? All I can say to their question is that I am delighted that I took the opportunity to step out of my myopic box into a wonderful world I could never dream of at LSF & Montpellier. In my estimation, every euro I spent at LSF & Montpellier was well worth the experience of a life time. Ça va, Très bien, Merci beaucoup to Cloé, Laetitia & all the staff of LSF.
What I enjoyed the most about LSF was their teaching method. I had the pleasure of having classes with Marielle, Cécile and Romain who were all very engaging and for whom I will be forever grateful. Classes were conversational and dynamic but also very thought-provoking. Through debates, group activities and a good dose of grammar, they kept us interested and engaged. We managed to learn more than a textbook french, but something that we could actually use in everyday life.
Thanks to their DALF preparatory course with Hinda and her absolute disposition to help out and motivate me, I was able to pass it in time and integrate a french university.
I will always be grateful to the LSF team, for the great experience they provided me with. That being not only the activities, but introduction to real french culture and a great host family. As a student, I was and still am satisfied with my experience and never hesitate in recommending LSF to anyone!
Danke LSF für 8 tolle Wochen ! Ich empfehle diese Schule jedem weiter, da LSF sich durch ihre kompetenten Lehrkräften, die gut strukturierten Kurseinheiten und ihr herzliches und hilfsbereites Team auszeichnet, welches alles daran setzt, ihren Schülern einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt zu bereiten. Ich bin sehr froh, dass ich mich für LSF entschieden habe. Danke für alles 🙂
The school is located in the center of Montpellier, 2 minutes from Peyrou park. Such a nice place to be, especially in the spring.
The teachers are great, find time for everyone and adapt to specific needs of every student, and make every lesson interesting.
I also liked the activities, you can have them almost every day, and it is a perfect way to discover the city and the French culture.
The only regret is not staying longer!
Comparing this to my experience at LSF last summer, I can definitely say that LSF has the most effective and well-organised courses and very helpful learning materials. The initial placement evaluation and the weekly evaluations enable LSF to provide one with an efficient language course even for short stays. Regarding administrative matters, the staff is very professional and efficient. The activities are also very well-organised and everybody at LSF seems to have fun providing students with the best possible experience. Last but not least, I met many extraordinary people as fellow students at LSF.
This review might sound a bit superficial, but I really seldom get excited like this. If anyone likes to have further explanations, please ask me. 🙂
… hilfsbereites aufgestelltes LSF-Team, familiäre und freundliche Atmosphäre, kleine Klassen, absolut geniale Gastfamilie, geduldige Lehrer mit grosser Erfahrung, grosse Begeisterung, totale Motivation, Kreativität, coole Leute, Fortschritte, unvergessliche Eindrücke, bereichernde Erleb-nisse, wertvolle Erfahrungen, wunderschöne und besondere Begegnun-
gen, weltweite Kontakte und „une ville qui bouge et attire“!
….und für diejenigen, die nebst dem Erlernen der Sprache, Frankreich von der kulturellen, sowie kulinarischen Seite her kennenlernen möchten, bietet LSF Montpellier mit den täglichen „activités“ viele verschiedene Möglichkeiten.
Der 3-wöchige Sprachkurs gehört eindeutig zu einer weiteren sehr wertvollen Bereicherung und Erfahrung in meinem Leben………und wird voraussichtlich auch nicht mein letzter sein bei LSF Montpellier!
… Sprachen verbinden Menschen - un grand MERCI à tous!
LSF is located in the heart of Montpellier. It's a student town full of young people and there's always something exciting happening. Music, art shows, museums. It's all there. It also has an amazing concentration of cafes, wine bars and clubs.
