I honestly just know I will definitely want to do an experience like this again!

My host was so, so sweet and friendly! She was a very experienced host who I believe had hosted over 40 students from all over the world. She was retired so always was around during the day. She also made excellent food which was a bonus! I really liked the language school. I had a great teacher called David who taught me for both the two weeks. He was very funny and animated and never made a lesson dull. The school was situated right in the centre of Montpellier so it was really convenient after class to go grab some lunch from a nearby restaurant. The activities were so fun: I went on three excursions which were all very different in their own ways. It was on the first excursion where I met one of my closest friends during my visit, so I would recommend going on excursions to meet new people. When with my host family we would only speak in French, which made a huge difference. Because I was almost forced to speak in French it automatically improved. I loved going in a waterfall for the first time, I loved the fact that I got to visit the beach, the mountains and the city in the same week and of course trying as many different flavours of ice cream possible!
I honestly just know I will definitely want to do an experience like this again! It has also really motivated me to improve my French and hopefully one day in the near future I will speak it fluently.

This is the worst language school I have ever been to.

I am writing this review out of utter anguish and pain because of the way this horrible school treated me. First of all, I want to start by saying that I booked almost a 4-month long course here which costed me around 5100 euro and this school shamelessly took all of my money without refunding it. I do not even know where to start on how about this school is, but I will first start by accommodation. I chose to stay in the studio provided by the school and it’s a very small, hot, underequipped studio with tons of problems. I paid 700 euros a month for it and director of this school told me before my arrival that I am enjoying a very special price. Little did I knew that when I came here it was worse than a prison cell and when I told the French residents who live here that I’m paying 700 Euros, they were baffled and told me that I am brutally scammed.

Next part. The director of this school. Before arriving here, the director of this school told me how great her staff and the studies are, and since I needed to pass my C1 exams, I took the bait. When I arrived here, I found the staff were not very helpful and were straight up liars without any shame. They put in the wrong level from the get go and I was not able to understand many things that were discussed in the class. I also have a problem with anxiety and being in the wrong class made things worse. One of their staff members told me that they will put me at the right level from next week but then lied and told me that they will put me in the right level from next month. This technically means that I will lose money by being in the wrong class. On top of that, I found that the teachers here are largely incompetent and slow, their teaching styles are absolutely horrible and they pass most of the time chit chatting with their favourite students in class.
This is just the beginning of the story, I caught two of their staff members mocking me and making fun of me and as soon as I entered the building they stopped. I complained to the director of this school who then started to completely ignore all my messages and when I got frustrated and told her that I feel like I am getting scammed, she in return accused me of harassment. So technically they harassed me and were abusive with me, and when I complained to fix the problem, they turned around and accused me of the same thing that they were doing. I decided to leave this school because my anxiety got worse and it was extremely hard for me to arrange 5100 Euros so I begged the director of this school to give me some of my money back. She refused, I asked her if she can use the enormous amount of money, I sent her for private lessons. She refused again saying the contract doesn’t allow her.

She said that there is not a single possibility that I will get anything back. She kept on proposing me low-class courses to attend and I told her that I have a problem and I want to return to my country and I would’ve been perfectly okay if she would’ve given me at least some part of my money, but no! She didn’t show any compassion towards my medical condition or my financial condition. Moreover, she even took the 220 Euros that I paid for the examination fees and refused to even refund that even though this money was not even supposed to be for the school.

So, a recap. They offered horrible accommodation, they offered horrible courses, they put me in the wrong level, their staff made fun of me, when I complained and said that I no longer want to continue, the director did not refund me a single dime and on top of that accused me of being a bad person. I never seen such dishonest, deceiving, disrespectful people in my entire life. I will never forget the emotional and financial stress this disgusting school has caused me. Best French school with 22 years of experience. Sure! Most people book for 2-3 weeks so they never see the other side of this school. But I will never forget the lost money and the psychological hell they put me through.

I would also like to mention that these people threaten police action against students who leave negative reviews as well. It's too bad that I fell in the trap of their positive reviews and chose this school. I wouldn't even recommend this school to the worst of my enemies.

Summer at Accent Français

My time at Accent Français was incredible. I spent 8 weeks learning french at the school and living with a host family. I was supported and challenged well by the teachers and the other administrative staff at the school. The administrative team works very hard and is able to handle problems quickly, with the safety and the best interests of the student always a top priority. The teachers do a great job of creating a fun, safe environment to learn french, ask questions, and make mistakes. At a place like this school, friends are made quickly, and there was always a lot to do in the city. My french improved so much during my stay! I would go back again in a heartbeat.

What would you improve about this program?
More advertising for opportunities to interact with French natives.

Spring 2017

I came to Accent Francais through my school to finish part of my degree. Before I went I thought is was just going to be the same as the school in the United States. However, I was really surprised when it was completely different. I remember my very first day and it was very overwhelming; I walked into class and everything was in French. I had some practice prior to going but is was not nearly enough. I really thought it was going to be impossible to pick up. I had to give it some time and I ended up having the time of my life. I made great friends in my classes and participated in the school events which helped with the language barrier. The best part for me was going on the weekend excursions the school provided because you could see the south of France without breaking the bank. Since I have been done, I wish that I could go back and continue learning French. I would recommend this to anyone interested in France because it is an experience of a lifetime!
