French and Skiing: there’s no better way to make the most of an action packed holiday than combining skiing with some French lessons. Ski in one of the world’s top ski resorts – Morzine, whilst improving your French – all beneath the majestic peak of Mont Blanc. As well as getting some skiing or snowboarding action Morzine also offers great après-ski in the fantastic ski areas of Morzine – Avoriaz.

You can take 15 hours of lessons per week, in the morning with our native French speaking teachers. Whatever you learn in the classroom you will have the chance to practise out and about on the slopes and in the town. This is the best way to improve your French quickly! There is free wifi access in the school and an activities programme that helps you get the most out of your trip, encourages you to practise your French and enables you to make friends easily.
