1.  Family rooms

We offer families accommodation in 2 rooms in our shared apartments so that parents and children can meet fellow students of all nationalities.  Centrally located and of a high standard, this option is very popular with our students.

2. Private Apartments

We have some people who come to take a Family French course with us who prefer their own private apartment or chalet. We have one private apartment ourselves and we can also arrange private apartments. We work with Elevation AlpsMorzine Immobilier and More Mountain for this.



Junior Day Camp: 6-17 years of age

Adult French Intensive Courses: minimum age 16 years, no maximum age!


Junior Lessons

Morning lessons for juniors take place from 9h-12h30 Monday to Friday with a 30-minute break.  Junior Day Camp lessons are designed to be fun and to complement academic studies.  Our teachers specialise in bringing French to life and putting this into context via a range of activities, games, songs and little outings.  Juniors work on projects and speak French to the locals out and about in Morzine.  For students studying for their GCSE, IB or A-level, we can provide more exam focussed sessions.

Junior Activities

Our qualified native-speaker activity leaders put together an activity programme each week for our juniors with a wide range of activities.  Juniors often have a choice of activities and workshops depending on the weather, local events and the ages of the children.  Activities range from sports activities like Alpine French School Olympic games, trips to a local lake beach, beach volleyball and swimming, to arts and crafts activities.  One thing is sure though, our juniors love all of the activities chosen by the activity leaders!

Supplementary activities

Juniors can add private French classes for a small supplement:

  • Option + Private French tuition: supplement of 140€ for 3 x 45-minute lessons

Adult French Intensive Courses

Adults on our Family French Courses take part in our French Intensive Courses which run from 9h-12h30.  Read more about our French Intensive Courses here.

  • Small group sizes with a maximum of 10 students
  • Focus on communication and dialogue with lots of conversational interactive activities
  • Use of the French language in real-life situations
  • Useful topics often chosen by our students
  • Work on relevant vocabulary & pronunciation to increase your ability to express yourself in French
  • Available for all levels from Beginner to Advanced

You will go through a variety of linguistic activities during your time at Alpine French School so that you approach French from all different perspectives and in varied situations from conversational activities, pronunciation exercises, games, quizzes, songs, discussions, comedy sketches, commenting on authentic videos, role-playing in everyday situations so that at the end of the course, you will be readily understood in everyday situations. By speaking French in a friendly school environment and with our partner shops, bars and restaurants, you can practice talking in French in many different situations and this is the key to progression ! Reading, writing and grammar are also developed as the foundations of the language but the focus in lesson time is on oral communication.

Our pedagogical team and all of the Alpine French School staff are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
