Your summer French classes on Lake Geneva

You study French 15 hours a week, in a group of max.15 students, in the mornings (9 am to 12 pm). The French course is at a local language school, centrally located and close to the lake. The school offers well-equipped classrooms and get-together areas (an outdoor place and vending machines are available on campus). 

The French classes are offered from beginner to advanced levels. All students attend a language test on arrival to ensure they attend the correct level course. You also receive a certificate at the end of your course. 
Classes are taught attractively for Juniors: they focus on oral communication using songs, TV shows, films, and magazines. Teachers use fun activities to teach grammar and vocabulary.

Professional instructors supervise specialized activities, such as some watersport activities. Students are expected to attend lessons and activities as scheduled and must respect the program curfew established depending on age.
