We have existed for more than fifteen years and offer all sorts of opportunities for exchange and language learning. Our center in Montpellier has around 500 members, the majority are French families who are interested in learning English and learning about American culture.
We organize social and cultural events every week. We offer language courses in French and English and have our own teaching method which involves putting the language and its structure into practice by using dialogues, games, role plays and situation and by working with authentic materials such as Newspapers, videos, drama and even packaging, maps or objects that show the language in every day use. The lessons are always taught by natives and are dynamic and a fun way of learning.
We are well established in the local community and can rely on the support and good will of both the local government and the citizens of Montpellier who are all eager to welcome Americans and other foreigners to Montpellier. We look forward to meeting you.
