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
