Whether you’re here in winter or summer, whether it’s sunny or snowing, one thing’s for sure, you’ll really notice a difference in your state of mind after a few days in the great outdoors. Research says that bright, airy classrooms and access to fresh air improves learning, concentration and attention.

Morzine is a hive of activity in both winter and summer, you can choose to come here to ski or snowboard in the winter or mountain bike and cycle in the summer.

The scenery around Morzine can’t be beaten. The mountain views go on for miles and the green rolling meadows in the summer are spectacular. Morzine is the perfect place to head to, to clear your mind especially if you live in a city and need to escape for a while. This relaxing and calming environment is perfect for putting your brain to work and is also great for a bit of “post intensive french course” relaxing. After an hour or two in the great outdoors, you’ll be ready and willing to start learning again.
Morzine is full of french people and British expats who have chosen to make this beautiful part of the world their home. This combination means that everyone is used to helping people out as they learn the language and pretty much everyone is happy to do so.

Most of the french in Morzine speak a lot of English too, so if you do go a little bit wrong, they’ll be more than happy to help you out. This is a huge benefit of learning french in Morzine, it’s welcoming and diverse community is one of its best attributes.
