About the school

In one of the most attractive streets in the historic center of Montpellier, Grand Rue Jean Moulin, you will find language school ILA. This street is in the pedestrian zone with many small boutiques, gourmet shops and authentic French cafes. The school building is a stylish mansion dating back to the 18th century, the charming entrance has already been featured several times in books and tourist guides about Montpellier. The school is modernly furnished and fully equipped. In just a few steps from school you arrive at the sunny terraces of Place de la Comédie: the central square of Montpellier with the fascinating opera house. Also the green park Esplanade Charles de Gaulle and many monuments and sights of the historic center are within walking distance. Therefore, when studying at ILA it easy to completely immerse yourself in the bustling city life of Montpellier. ILA is the sister of language school EasyFrench and the two schools share the same schoolbuilding and classrooms. The only difference between the two is the class size: at ILA you are in class with a maximum of 10 people and at EasyFrench there is a maximum of 12. Therefore the course prices at EasyFrench are a bit lower.

Montpellier

Elegant buildings, large private mansions, stately boulevards, bowery streets and beautiful sandy beaches: that is the stylish metropolis Montpellier. Montpellier is also the fastest growing city in France and one of the most multicultural cities. The historic old town has a medieval character. Go here to wander around between the historical, architectural delights and cozy bistros. Looking for a quiet place to study? The oldest botanical garden in France, the ‘Jardin des plantes’, is located in Montpellier and offers an oasis of peace during busy days of study. More than a third of the population in Montpellier is formed by students and they give a lively atmosphere to the day- and night life here. Because the city directly borders the Mediterranean Sea, you can alternate bustling city activities with relaxed beach days during your language course.

My experience in ILA has been great. I’ve been here for a month and I’ve truly learn a lot of French. I totally recommend it because the teachers are super friendly and the people who work here are always nice and willing to help you!

I just spent 5 weeks at Ila and wanted to write this review because I selected this school based on the posted reviews. I am a mature student and came all the way from California to learn french. I invested a lot of time and money and thought I had chosen a great school, unfortunately this is not the case.

ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS YOUR MONEY
They give you a placement test 3 weeks before you start so that they know where to place you, I was a beginner and the beginning classes starts on the first Monday of the month. Instead they started me in the last week of the beginning course which was 2 days of classes which I couldn't understand, on Wed. the final tests which I was required to take, then a national holiday and Friday was just a fun day! So I just paid $130.00 for nothing.

I asked my teacher if she though the intensive course would be good for me and she recommended it to me. So I went to the dest and ask to register which I did for the remaining 4 weeks. It didn't take me long, 3 days, to realize this class was not the right class for me and I went to the front desk to ask to be transferred to a different one. The condescending women said she would talk to someone and for me to check back the following Tuesday. So on Tuesday I show up and she tells me there is nothing they can do, she just said " No there are no refunds." so I asked if I can use the money for private tutor? again no! so I went back to the class and asked the teacher to please slow down and he said he couldn't that he has to keep up with the other students in the class, which were well ahead of me in their french so I left. Now I have just wasted another $360.00 for a total of $490.00 for absolutely nothing.

Our class was full with 10 students but the rooms are so small you are elbow to elbow and its hot and smells like a locker room. We couldn't open the window because they were working on the street below and the noise was too loud. It wasn't until the beginning of the 3rd week that they turn on our A/C (yes we had one the whole time) after one of the student left class because she was sick from the heat.

I stayed with a host family, in my case an elderly lady. From the moment I got there it was one thing after an other. I was told I couldn't cook, I was only to take 5 min showers and she gave me a small amount of space in the refrigerator and counter. There was no place for me to study except sitting on my bed. I did talk to the front desk and they said they would talk to her, I never heard another word about it. An other student was placed in a horder's home, I saw the pictures it was disgusting, and he was given another place to stay. I can honestly say they don't check host family homes, and it seems the "hosts" are families that need additional income.

It was always my intention to return for more classes in the fall as I knew 5 weeks was not going to get me to the speak french so I took some time and went to several other schools in Montpellier and I can say their are much better schools available that charge the same. One I will be attending on my trip back!

I came to ILA to get back into learning French, so my level is uneven; ok basic vocabulary, not very good grammar. Having tried a few French schools over the years, I found ILA to be average at best. The same experience of writing in crowded blanks on photocopied lessons which the class sometimes found difficult to follow, watching dated Youtube videos, and worst of all, the instructor often didn't go around the class for participation, instead just letting the same keeners dominate our time.

I was particularly discouraged after writing a narrative I presumed was to be read, but was to be handed in. Given I thought I'd be reading it, my paper was difficult to decipher, but in a class of just eight people with just one submission reviewed, decent pedagogy calls for better parameters at least (I would write a more sensitive computer program providing feedback to random people than the feedback I received).

So, while I gather ILA may be a good choice for young adults looking for a fun place to study (which is more apparent from the Google Maps entry than their website), I wouldn't recommend it to someone like myself who would like the content to be less hokey and the classroom experience better focused on all the students in the class.

To reply to ILA's response, most people base expectations on an average experience, which this was, and don't want to be disruptive, especially on the spot. My point is that most of the way through the course I found nothing special about ILA, and in the last part was disappointed in particular with the lack of individual attention, given the small classroom size. Given the course was only a week, I am not convinced switching classes would have helped compared to the disruption.

Hosted reviews like these function outside a company's purview. I hope my review is helpful for those with a similar perspective. Your response seems to want to put the fault on me. I would be glad to hear that ILA revises their course to address these very typical faults (participation methods fixed around an average), since the setting is very good and the people seem nice.

The teachers are great, but the people in front desk and the one you see the payments are awful, the organization is so bad, too bad for the teachers having this administrators with them.

Amazing experience! This language school has the perfect combination of a high standard of teaching alongside a fun environment with cool activities and events. I came in August for 2 months and decided to come back for another 6 months because I loved it so much
