The location

Our school is in the heart of the beautiful French Alpine town of Morzine. Enjoy skiing and snowboarding literally on your doorstep in the winter, or a range of summer adventure activities such as mountain biking, hiking, climbing and much more in the summer. If that’s all a little too adventurous with you, relax and rejuvenate in the Alpine air, chill out at the turquoise swimming lakes or in a pavement café. If you take relaxation seriously, we also offer French and Yoga courses!


our dynamic management team come from a variety of educational backgrounds and our considerable combined experience makes our school unique. We combine the best from international teaching methods and ideologies with the enthusiasm and innovation offered by our teachers to offer a truly enriching and memorable experience.


You could find yourself in a group in your Intensive French Course with a Brazilian law student, an Australian ambassador, a financial consultant working in Geneva, an oil worker from Africa, a writer from the UK, a professional triathlete or an Olympic snowboarder! Our students come from varied nationalities and backgrounds to make our classes a very interesting place to learn! The one thing they all have in common is wanting to improve their French in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and to get an insight into the French language and culture.

Teaching Methods

You will go through a variety of linguistic activities during your time with us 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 practise 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.

Evaluation and Certification

At the end of your Intensive French course with us, you will receive a certificate. After the first 3-6 hours of your course, you will receive a mini-feedback questionnaire to complete to ensure you are happy. Programme
