NRCSA Center: Montpellier Language School
Montpellier, France  


About The NRCSA Center

Our French language school, recognized by the top quality language school association IALC and several governments, provides well-equipped and air-conditioned classrooms, highly qualified and motivated French teachers, and excellent customer service by our welfare team.

22 computers with flat screens for high speed internet access as well as wireless access (WIFI) - both free of charge - are available to our French students. Located in the heart of the historic center of the University city of Montpellier, we welcome thousands of students from all different backgrounds and ages from more than 70 countries each year.

Our building is a stylish private mansion dating back to the 18th century. Several times featured in Montpellier books, our French language school building with its magnificent entrance has managed to keep its charm, although equipped to modern standards.

Our French language school is only a few steps away from the sunny terraces of the « Place de la Comédie », the main square of Montpellier and its fascinating opera house. The green open space of the « Esplanade Charles de Gaulle » and all monuments and places of interest of the historic center are within a few minutes walk.


About Montpellier

Montpellier, capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, has a long tradition as a University city and is the home to one of the biggest and best known Universities of France - more than a quarter of Montpellier's 260.000 inhabitants study here.

Montpellier offers a beautiful historic center with narrow picturesque streets, elegant private mansions dating back to the 16th century and many tree shaded cafes, 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 étangs (lagoons) with huge colonies of wild pink flamingos. 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 fascinating and unspoilt 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 one can even sit outside in winter to drink ones coffee in one of the numerous cafes. The sun shines for more than 300 days per year...

A generally mild climate, the average temperature is about 11°C/51°F in January and 27°C/80°F in July.
