“I absolutely loved studying here this past winter! I have a full-time in person job in tech but was able to make it work for a few weeks remotely in the intensive class and a few tutoring sessions.
Everyone at the school was super friendly and engaging. Lessons were a fun time mixed with group activities, games, and direct instruction.
I’m not even a big skier but still got to enjoy the beauty of Morzine by hiking on the trails, snowshoeing, and taking in all the nature and chalet-style charm during my free time.
Shortly after my trip I even took the DELF B2 exam and passed! Huge credit to all of my teachers and everyone at Alpine French School! :)” – John Hui (Winter 2023 Student)
