Montpellier
 
 

Montpellier, the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France, is a lively University city with year-round sunshine, 300 days per year! It offers a beautiful historic center with narrow picturesque streets, elegant private mansions dating back to the 16th century and many tree-shaded cafés, and also an interesting cultural life. Thanks to its countless historical treasures, the city is officially called a “Ville d’Art”. Many street musicians and artists as well as a variety of famous festivals contribute to its cultural life. The warm, Mediterranean atmosphere is reflected in the day to day life of the town.

Montpellier opens like an amphitheater towards the Mediterranean with its long, sandy beaches and the lagoons with huge colonies of wild pink flamingos. The Place de la Comédie is the modern town center with slick office buildings, 19th century hotels, and a large plaza that comes alive at night with street musicians and strolling entertainers.

Thanks to its excellent location between Provence, the Camargue, the Cevennes mountains and the Pyrenees, Montpellier offers a wide range of excursion opportunities. The interior is beautiful, with many gorges, creeks and picturesque villages. This is also the biggest wine growing area of the world with excellent wines to be discovered and tasted. The climate is excellent; summer lasts until the end of October and you can even sit outside in winter to sip a café au lait or a glass of wine in one of the numerous cafés.

Study French in a central, convenient and attractive location in the heart of Montpellier’s historic center. The language school, with air-conditioned rooms, operates two centers within 3 minutes on foot of each other. The busy streets you can wander into after class are filled with small boutiques, gourmet shops and typical coffee shops. You’ll be only a few steps away from the sunny terraces of the “Place de la Comédie”, the main square of Montpellier and its fascinating opera. The green open space of the “Esplanade Charles de Gaulle” and all monuments of the historic center are within minutes.
