Proven Teaching Methods
” The balance is great, I left Morzine wishing to stay, or come back soon. The school exceeded my expectations. The first day I went to class apprehensive and I went home really happy. My teacher was one of the best “things” of Morzine, she was so patient, comprehensive, worried and occupied in our French progress every day; she was all the time ready to receive our questions and suggestions. Debs, Helen & Christelle made me feel safe, that whatever happened I could talk to you. My ski lessons were amazing, I learned more than I expected and the instructors greatly increased my confidence. I learn many things and the school was perfect”

If you study French in France, you will be immersed in not only the French language but also French culture. Dip into the French way of life, one of the most envied in the word and get to know French people first hand – what can be a more valuable experience ?
If you choose to learn French in France, not only do you immerse yourself in the French language by taking a French course, but as soon as you walk outside the classroom and the school, you are in France. It sounds simple and it is. Say ‘bonjour’ to people as you pass, learn the basics of shop conversations and current pleasanteries that are ‘in vogue’ as you do your daily shopping. Sample French food, learn about French style, visit some local attractions, see some of the astounding French scenery, and there is certainly plenty of that from sea, city to mountains. Fall in love with France as well as simply the French language.Why learn French in France?
What makes Alpine French School unique is the ability to combine French Intensive Courses with amazing activities in an area of outstanding natural beauty ! Combine French courses with activities such as skiing or snowboarding in the winter, climbing, hiking, mountain biking and adventure activities in the summer. If these activities are too active for you, we also offer French and yoga courses so you can relax and rejuvenate in the clean Alpine air. In the winter, ski or snowboard in the mornings and then take a French Intensive Course in the afternoons.
