About the course
In addition to the French language courses, our school in Montpellier offers you to attend cooking classes all year round. You will have the opportunity to discover local and seasonal products that you will cook according to French traditions with the techniques that the Chef will teach you.
In 3 hours, you will discover the fresh products he has purchased for the recipes, you will learn how to cook them and make the most of them! The cooking class will be followed by a tasting/meal accompanied by a wine chosen by the Chef. Enjoy your meal!
  • Standard Course (20 lessons)
  • 8 lessons spread over 2 afternoons with our Chef in his cooking school
  • The Standard French Course focuses on learning the fundamental linguistic aspects: reading, writing, comprehension, with special attention to oral expression and phonetics. 
  • Cooking classes are held in a school located near our French language school. The chef will reveal the secrets of a successful dish by sharing his recipes, tips and tricks. You will have the opportunity to taste your creation in the company of the chef and the other participants!

  This course is very successful and it is recommended to book at least 1 month in advance.

Program goals:
