Institut Linguistique Adenet

Your first day at ILA

We ask our students to come once only at 8:00 am on their first day in order to take a placement test (45 minutes).

During the evaluation of the test you will receive practical information about your stay at ILA as well as the ILA folder, a map of Montpellier and also the ILA Guide.

From your test results you will be placed in a class suitable for your current level. You will be introduced to you teacher and start your course at 10:00 am (until 1:15 pm).

You will therefore not lose any of your valuable tuition due to the placement test.

After the course on your first day there will be an orientation tour of Montpellier showing you the beauty of our city but also providing you with additional practical information.

Which accommodation option shall I choose?

Host family

A host family is not a hotel with hotel services. Staying with a host families requires respect from both sides since it means sharing part of a private life. You will have your own room, own key and you are independent up to a certain extend, but you will have to adapt yourself to e.g. meal times of the family and the rules of the home. Showing interest in your hosts and being open minded towards them will help you to integrate quickly.

Student Residences

The student residences are very popular with students, who like independency and meeting other students from all around the world. You have your own studio including private bathroom and own kitchen. You prepare your meals yourself (or together with other students) or enjoy the many reasonable priced restaurants and student bars. You will have to respect the rules of the residences, but you are completely independent. Most students staying at the student residence are between 18 and 30 years old, but also some "older students" young at mind' chose this option.


The aparthotels*** are more upmarket than the student residences and offer higher quality of accommodation and services. The aparthotels*** also provide independent studios with private bathrooms and private kitchens. This type of residence suits the more discerned student looking for independent accommodation.


We can book hotels of all categories and price levels. Due to the fact that hotels are relatively expensive compared with the other accommodation offered we only recommend hotels for shorter stays.
