What is the minimum level required to start a course?

We propose courses for all levels: from absolute beginner (A0) to perfecting (C2).



 

How do I know my level?

On the enrolment paper you write down the level that you believe you have.
We also give you an evaluation test (at the bottom of the enrolment paper) which will give us an initial idea of the extent of your knowledge.
Your teacher will evaluate your exact level during the first class and he or she will adapt the classes to your level.
If you enrol for a group class, you'll be in a group of people who have more or less the same level as you. This allows you to learn together, student to student, which is a very enriching experience.



 

How can I book my course?

To enrol, you need to send us your enrolment form (filled in and signed) by post or by email. Your enrolment will be finalised after we have received your payment (complete or partial). After we've received the form and your payment we'll send you an enrolment confirmation.


 


Can I enrol for an individual course with someone else I know?

Of course. Our prices become lower per person when you 'share' your teacher with someone else. You can also enrol with 2, 3 or 4 other people.


 


I would like to enrol for a Theme Course in May with 4 of my friends, is that possible?

Yes, you can enrol with your friends for the Theme Courses already organised by the César Institute, but we can also organise a Theme Course for you and your friends at any moment of the year. (with a minimum enrolment of 5 people)


 


Is there a date limit for enrolling?

No, but we prefer to receive your enrolment at least 2 weeks before the beginning of your course.
Last-minute enrolments are accepted, but in this case (especially in summer) we won't be able to guarantee you a place or your choice of lodgings.


 


How can I pay?


· By direct bank transfer to the bank account of l'Institut César Langues: (please send us a copy of the transfer record) Our bank coordinates are,
La Poste - IBAN : FR55 2004 1010 0908 6741 5N03 083 - BIC : PSSTFRPPMON

· By bank cheque in Euros, payable to a French bank under the name of l'Institut César Langues, 3 rue de l'Amandier - 34000 Montpellier

· Full or part payment in cash at your enrolment, the balance to be paid on the first day of your course. Confirmation of your enrolment cannot be confirmed before a deposit of 175€ has been paid at least two weeks before your courses start.

 



Is it possible to extend my stay at the Institute?

Yes, of course, we ask you in this case to inform us of your decision so we can reserve your place.


 


What is the best time to call you?

We are at the institute from 8.30 am to 8.30 pm. Don't hesitate to leave us a message on the answering machine, we'll call you back as soon as possible.


 


Do I have to buy any books for my course?

No, class material is included in the price of your course. It can, however, occur that we advise you to buy a book that could serve you personally in the study of the language you are learning. We do advise you to bring your own dictionary.


 


Can I lend books from your library?

Yes, our library is at the disposal of our students for the time they study at the César Languages Institut . We ask you to pay a small bond fee for each book borrowed, that bond is returned to you when you return the book in good condition.


 

 

What is the average age of your students? Am I too old?

Of course you're not too old! The average age of our students is : 25 - 55 years. All ages are good to learn French or any other language!

Do I need a visa to come to France?

If you are a European resident you don't need a visa. For other nationalities, you should ask the Embassy or Consulate of France in your country.


 


Do I need to have insurance?

Personal insurance is recommended, but for most people, not a requirement to come to France. It is recommanded in case of medical expenditures or travel annulation fees. The courses themselves require no special insurance policies.

 



What can I do in Montpellier during my spare time?

You'll find a programme of activities and excursions on the boards at the entry of the Institute. For certain activities there are a restricted number of places, so don't forget to enrol!
For the Theme Courses, we'll hand out the programme on the first day of your course.
There are many things to do and see in and around Montpellier if you prefer to organise your own activities, just ask your teacher!

You can have a look at our complete guide for all activities in and around Montpellier.
