Learn French + Hiking: what to expect

You will arrive in Morzine on a Saturday and have the weekend to settle into your chosen accommodation and have a wander around the beautiful Alpine town.  On Monday you will start your French and hiking course with a morning hike.  You can read more about the sample hiking programme below.  We can also offer more challenging hikes for the more adventurous amongst you.  All of our hikes are lead by a local French guide who will explain about the mountains and what you see on the walk.  This is also a great opportunity to practice your French outside of the classroom by chatting to the guide during your walk.

French lessons start at 2pm allowing you time to grab a quick bite to eat in one of the many cafés and restaurants on the school’s doorstep.  Students are split into classes according to their level of French so that classes are relevant to their level and objectives.  We always include plenty of conversational activities and our focus is on speaking and listening skills and making conversational activities a priority.  Our teachers enjoy keeping up to date with all the latest ideas in education and are constantly developing new fun lessons to ensure that students progress as much as possible while enjoying their learning with Alpine French School.  Our French Intensive Courses include 3 hours of tuition per day with a 15-minute break.  Lessons finish at 5.15pm, leaving you plenty of time in the late afternoon and evening to soak up some sun and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in Morzine or at your accommodation.

Hiking in Morzine Programme: Discover the Alps

(suitable for all fitness levels: 3 of the following walks will be chosen by the guide)

  • Day 1 – Fauna: gentle walk where your guide will explain the different species you can encounter in the local mountains.
  • Day 2 – Discover the River: learn how to read information from the river and the ecosystem around it.  A lesson on the environment and what it has to tell us.
  • Day 3 – Flowers in Food: during this walk, discover the local flora so that you can easily integrate in your cooking skills.  For a small supplement, you can finish your adventure in a restaurant that will cook your flowers for you.
  • Day 4 – Alpage and Fromage: on this steady walk, you will visit a traditional cheese-making farm in the Alpage up in the mountains, learn all about cheese-making methods and of course, have a little taste!
