Montpellier: Sampling local food specialities

In the cookery school, a short walk from the French school in Montpellier, a gourmet chef will supervise the cookery workshop. He will explain in full, the French cookery specific vocabulary, the food and ingredients needed to prepare the recipe and the different cookery utensils used. He also offers his help and shares a few trade tips. This is a great way to practise your French outside the classroom during your French language course experience, in Montpellier.

Of course, the cookery classes are given in the French language which helps students to reinvest the language skills acquired at the French language school, to practice the language and improve it even further through full immersion.
