A great school atmosphere!


At LSF French language school there is a very friendly family atmosphere that is much appreciated by our students. Thanks to the warm and relaxed ambiance and the size of our school, students easily get to know each other and can easily interact with the staff. By neither being a too big nor a too small school, our students can enjoy a more individual and personalized experience while still being able to make lots of new friends.

Another contributing factor to our great school atmosphere is the fantastic nationality mix we have among the students (85 different nationalities in 2017!). Having this wonderful mix of nationalities allows our students to meet people from all over the world, and also gives them more opportunities to communicate with each other in French as the common language.

A high quality language stay!


All the teachers at LSF are highly qualified and are passionate about teaching French. All our teachers are French native speakers with university degrees and FLE (French as a Foreign Language) qualifications. In order to ensure quality and give more room for individual attention in the classroom, the class sizes at LSF are small with an average of 8 students per class (maximum 10). This means more time for the individual student to speak and participate, more time for the teacher to give the student feedback, which in the end means more progress by the student!

At LSF we are proud of our selection of French host families. All our host families are chosen with a lot of care and in order to match the student with the most suitable family we carefully study each student’s application. This allows us to provide a high quality accommodation and immersion experience that will make your language stay an unforgettable experience.

LSF’s commitment to quality has led us to receive several accreditations and to become members of associations striving to improve quality standards.

A fun learning experience!


For us at LSF it’s important to make your French language stay with us as enjoyable as possible. We provide a learning environment that is not only of high quality but that is also fun for the students. During our French classes our experienced and enthusiastic teachers create an entertaining and engaging class atmosphere where the students have fun while making fast progress!

Outside the French classes you will have plenty of things to see and do in Montpellier and the south of France during your free time. LSF organizes a wide range of social and cultural activities and excursions that allow you to discover interesting sights in the region and learn more about French culture and the French way of life. In Montpellier there are plenty of things you can experience on your own or together with the new friends you will make at our school.

I just finished a week at LSF doing their intensive program. This school is probably the best it can get when it comes to language schools. I have to learn French from scratch for my current masters program, so I came here during my winter break to supplement my studies. I would highly recommend anyone looking to study French in France to make this school their top choice. The staff is incredibly organized, friendly, and supportive. They were so responsive over the phone and email after I decided to enroll last minute. The school is located in a fantastic location and they utilize modern technology. For instance, they use an entire private social media platform that allows you to ask questions to live tutors and complete and submit digital assignments for your class. At the same time, you can post messages to the entire school kind of like a private Facebook group. My professor, Judith, was one of the best teachers I have ever had. I went to a highly prestigious university in America for undergrad and now for my masters; and I have never seen someone so passionate and supportive when it comes to teaching. Along with our group classes, I did a few one on one sessions with Judith where you spend an 1 hour/1.5 hour working on whatever you want. I asked if we could work on impromptu speaking because I’m trying to become conversational as fast as possible. Basically Judith and I had several multi–hour conversations where she allowed the discussion to naturally flow. When I made a mistake, she wrote out the rule or word I was messing up on sheet of paper I kept. It was interesting because many questions or issues I had floating around my head were naturally answered when I attempted something in conversation and Judith politely corrected me and explained what I was doing wrong. I’m at like a low intermediate level (A1-A2? My school doesn’t use universal levels) but we ended up talking about everything from world culture/history, technology, and food. In our last conversation, we literally talked about everything from the effects of dating apps and Instagram on society to the Chinese Opium Wars between France, Britain, and China. I’ve never had so much fun learning a language before and I have left with more confidence and motivation. I still have a long way to go, but if you stayed here for several months, as some do, you could move up very quickly. The school is also great if you’re just trying to refresh or solidify a foundation like I was. One last interesting thing, LSF organizes an activity every day of the week, including excursions on the weekends. I went to a local artists apartment to learn water color painting. It’s usually not my thing but wanted to try something new and I had a blast. If I was staying longer, I would absolutely do one of their planned excursions.read more

My partner and I had a wonderful experience studying French at LSF. We took a sabbatical year and decided to spend the first few months in France and do a French immersion course. We were beginners, so it was a little daunting at first given all the classes were taught in French. The course was challenging but enjoyable, all our teachers were very clear, very patient and very professional. This is not a holiday French school, most students in our classes were keen learners. Montpellier is a great base too for seeing south of France, the school organised many day trips which were conducted in French. We met many other students of all ages from all walks of life and all over the world. Highly recommended if you're serious about learning French and experience the Catalan French culture.read more
