- French + Activity Courses (Ski, Snowboard, Mountain Biking, Climbing, Cycling, Multi-activity)
For people who don’t live in the local area, we organise accommodation and activities (and many other extra services) for our students. Being located in the mountains enables us to offer a great choice of courses such as French + Ski/Snowboard in the winter or French + Mountain Biking/Climbing/Multi-Activity in the summer. These courses consist of our standard French intensive course for 3 hours per day plus 4 half-day sessions of your chosen activity plus accommodation in either a shared apartment or host family.
If you want to challenge yourself and push your French to new heights, or maybe you need to prove your level of French for your work ? If so, we organise courses to prepare you for French certificates such as the DELF, DALF or TCF. These exams can be taken in Geneva or Annecy once you have completed your exam preparation course with Alpine French School. During these preparation courses, we work on all skills of the language (speaking, listening, reading, writing) in addition to exam skills and techniques that will help you with the exam.
