Learn French in Chamonix, France

Sitting at the foot of the mountains, in a superb valley in Savoy, Chamonix embodies the distinctive charm of the French Alps. In the resort, traditional chalets, golden age palaces and modern constructions combine to create an original, multifaceted architectural landscape.

On the horizon, Mont Blanc, a giant of ice and snow, culminates at 4800 meters of altitude opposite the Massif des Aiguilles Rouges. A dream destination for all dedicated mountaineers and nature lovers. First discovered by two young English aristocrats in the 18th century, Chamonix developed in the 20th century with the boom of alpine tourism. An efficient transport network opened up the region to Europe. The small mountain resort is now internationally famous, connected to Switzerland by the train, to Italy by the Mont Blanc Tunnel and to the highest summits by an excellent infrastructure of lifts. “Cham” had the honour of hosting the very first Winter Olympic Games in 1924: a consecration which helped it assert its reputation as a choice ski resort, offering both the comfort of the city and the authenticity of the mountain.

If snow sports are king here, outdoor sports like mountain biking, climbing and hiking are also very popular in the summer months. Throughout the year, you can try convivial and rustic Savoy specialities here, such as fondue, raclette or the local “farçon”. Enjoy the food, take in the fresh air and set off to explore this legendary land, which has inspired so many explorers and artists throughout the centuries.
