So it is no wonder that many parents look for a French Language School for kids during the school holidays, especially the long summer holidays.

But by bringing them to France, this ca help to bring the language to life. They can use French in real life situations, speak French to real French people, use their French to order in shops, bars and restaurants and even make friends and play in French.

As above, children take part in morning French lessons and then in the afternoon, they can either stay at the camp and take part in activities with their new friends or you can enjoy activities together as a family. Alpine French School can arrange various types of accommodation including apartments shared with other students, hotels, chalets……
French Residential Camp
If you are looking for a French school for kids that they can attend independently, then 11-17 year olds can attend our French residential Summer Camp. This means that they come without you, their parents, and stay in our student residence with our Camp Director and Activity Leaders who offer 24/7 supervision. In the morning they do French lessons, followed by adventure activities in the afternoons, evening activities plus weekend activities and excursions. All meals are provided and they are guaranteed a great time with children from around the world.
French GCSE and other Exam Preparation courses
As part of our French language school for children, we offer French GCSE and other preparation courses. These courses run within our French Summer Camp during the summer holidays.
And to finish, a review from one of our many happy students:
“I’m overdue in thanking you for all your assistance as we looked into sending our two children to camp this August. Mia and Noah had a terrific time and learned so much. The afternoon activities exceeded expectations and they are still in touch with friends they met that week. The private lessons really helped Mia out with the subjunctive— on her first day of school, she passed the test needed to jump ahead a year of honors French.”
