French course in Chamonix

Chamonix is a winter sports paradise! Take a French course in Chamonix and you can enjoy slopes that are perfect for skiing and snowboarding. Yet this beautiful town, situated close to Mont-Blanc, is great for more than just winter sports. Conditions here are also ideal for paragliding, rock climbing, hiking, rafting and much more!

Even if you’re not feeling particularly active after your French lessons at our Chamonix school, there are endless things to do in your free time. A cable car will take you up to the spectacular Aiguille du Midi mountain, which offers absolutely incredible views of the Alps. Back in Chamonix, explore the town’s shops and markets – the perfect opportunity to practice your French with local residents! As the sun dips below Alpine peaks, sample some fine French cuisine in one of the many atmospheric restaurants, before enjoying some après-ski. Chamonix’s position at the meeting point of France, Italy and Switzerland makes it easy to discover other nearby locations, such as Geneva, Turin, Lyon and Annecy.

The course was an amazing opportunity to not only learn French but also to meet people from all over the world! The teachers did an amazing job of making sure that the course was always fun and interesting for all students. The accommodation was very simple, however it was very liveable and so central to the school, the town centre and bus stop to catch the bus to the ski fields.
