      Excellent teachers, good school, terrible host family accommodation and meals
      EasyFrench by ILA, summer 2018. Pros: Teachers are qualified, kind, and friendly. You will certainly improve your French language skills attending their lessons. Good school location and nice building (not will all the infrastructure you find in an American school, but good enough); it has AC wich is a plus during summer hot days. The management of the school is at another building, but they are easy to talk to. Cons: They depend on external providers for student accommodation. They lack control on the service the host families provide, therefore, you may end up paying for a dirty room and bad quality food or not getting your meals at all (the meals you already paid for). Actually, what they provide most of the time is a guest house service, even though they advertise it as "host family", not all students get the chance to stay with a real host family. Usually, students take part of the language course for a short time; they go back to their countries, anyway. But the school needs accommodation providers to keep itself on the business, international students will always need accommodation. So, if you complain about the low quality service you get from the host family or the school, you are the one to lose at the end, they won't trust you, they will trust the host family that they need as a future partner. At the end of the day, you go back to your country, you are the outsider. The host family and the school stay together.

      J'ai resté à l'école ILA pendant 23 semaines, quand je suis arrivé j'étais totalement débutant, j'avais très peur!!! Mais les professeurs sont tellement gentils et bien professionnel que mon niveau est monté vite! aussi, les classes sont petites alors tu peux parlé beaucoup avec ton professeur, et les élèves dans ta classe ont le même niveau que toi donc tu te sens bien. je penses que ILA est la meilleure école de monde!!! je conseil à tout le monde! pour moi aussi, la ville de Montpellier il y beaucoup de soleil et de fiestas c'est super! les professeurs te donnent des idées pour les sorties et font des excursions organisées, j'ai participé quelques fois, c'était bien car je ne connaissais pas la région. BRAVO

      Amazing French School
      The Institut Linguistique Adenet in Montpellier is a wonderful institution of learning. I had the most amazing teachers in my life, extremely well prepared, very motivated. Teaching was top quality. Small class sizes allow a fast progress. The classes were varied and amusing, they exceeded my expectations. The class atmosphere is serious, but very relaxed. The school residence is very comfortable and you can meet students from all over the world - I really enjoyed my stay there. Close to school, free WIFI and comfortable rooms, just great. You make friends very easily and you have a lot of fun. I spent a wonderful time at ILA and I like to thank all ILA staff for having organised such a great stay for me.

      Excellent Language School
      I booked a three months course with the Institut Linguistique Adenet. My stay was perfect. The ILA staff is very friendly and helpful. The teachers I had were the best I ever had in my life - they really motivated me to learn a lot, but we also had a lot of fun. I liked the atmosphere in school, there are students from so many different countries. Everybody is relaxed and friendly, I made a lot of new friends from different countries. My host family was more than welcoming, they really integrated me in their family life. It was like a home away from home. The food was excellent, real French cuisine! Montpellier is such a great city, you can meet people very easily and there is so much to do. Great place! I really recommend a stay in Montpellier at the Institut Linguistique Adenet!!
