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”

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?
