Great School! Great experience!

I LOVED my time at Accent Francais! I was so fortunate to have found it after initially attending another school in Montpellier. I found the teachers at Accent Francais to be so talented, CARING and fun! A very important combination of skill sets when you’re being thrown into an immersion language course! There were many differences between AF school and the other I attended. One of the big differences was how much better set up they were to encourage social interaction between students after classes. They have an entire area (indoor & outdoor) where students can “hang out” to eat lunch, get free tutoring to answer any additional questions they have and strike up friendships to practice what you’ve learned in class. Another difference was the fact they used technology to enhance the materials and the interaction between teachers and students. They had a program that we could access through apps on our phones to download materials from the class that day (including French audio), get access to homework assignments, etc. The other school didn’t have this either—limited to only paper. They also had great after school activities, a super fun goodbye party at the end of my 4 week stay and really engaged, lovely staff—starting with the school’s Director--to make things happen for us! Would highly recommend them! I’ve learned SO much. I’m back the US now, but planning my next opportunity to go back!

Great experience

My experience at Accent Français was excellent! The courses were very well organized and included an appropriate amount of work. I learned a lot from my Oral and Written Expression and Methodology courses, and I felt prepared for the DFP exam from my Professional French course. The professors were really engaged and effective. The excursions and tour guides were also wonderful--I went to Arles, Les Baux-de-Provence, and Sommières.

Above all, I improved my French a lot. I would highly recommend coming here to study!

Excellent all round!

I fully recommend this school. From beginning to end it was well organised. All staff were positive and helpful. Each week had specific objectives and I enjoyed seeing my progression throughout the time I was there. Two teachers daily, teaching different topics, helped keep the class fresh and motivated. Thanks Accent Français!

Accent Francais review

I was really pleasantly surprised by the quality and content of the courses and how conducive the atmosphere was to making friends. The teachers were incredibly friendly and made you feel comfortable to speak straight away, you could ask them anything and they would have class discussions about anything that interested you. I also appreciated how well your progression was recorded, there was a chart showing what lessons were coming up and the feedback was comprehensive and helpful. I could not recommend this school more, and this comes from someone who has done innumerable language classes in the past!

Foreign students beware!

I'm a concerned French citizen and I'm writing this review to make other people aware of this institution. They are very bad people and they treat foreign students very very badly. They take huge amounts of money from foreign students and does not rembourse them for any reason, whether personal or financial. Please do not fall for these nice and lovely reviews, most of these are done by social media manipulation. I know real students that have been mentally and emotionally harassed by this school. There are nicer schools in France to learn the culture and language, please do not spend your hard earned money in this school. You will not leave satisfied.

Please do not go to this school.

One of the main reasons you see this school having great reviews is because of their social media team doing a good job. In reality, this is an extremely poor and badly run institution that takes huge amounts of money from foreign students and after offering them substandard courses from teachers who just don't care, they don't even give you any of your money back. One of my friends here got horribly treated by this school and lost a massive amount of money. When they asked to claim that money back, the school did not showed any empathy whatsoever and took all of the money. They even took the money that they paid for the examination fees that was not even supposed to be from them. I hope that Google publishes this review because somehow this school is aptly deleting all the negative reviews but I can assure you that this is a very very bad institution and while you may be attracted by the nice reviews, please know that almost all of them are written by the people who work here or the host families that work with them. The management of this school are rude, unsympathetic and downright abusive to foreign students, on top of that if you complain, they will not fix anything. The accommodation they provide is substandard and overly priced and the place where they provide studios, the French residents pay almost half of what you will pay. I hope that the French government takes some sort of action against these institutions whose primary activities rely on exploiting foreign students. Please do not fall for the trap! Don't go to this school!

My worst experience ever with a language school.

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.
