Le séjour était génial, entre activités, rencontres,cours, et la ville...Elle est loin de tout, perdue au milieu des montagnes, avec peu d'endroits sympas...mais je l'ai beaucoup aimée, puisqu'avec des amis, nous avons passé des heures à parler sur la terrasse de l' hôtel ou dans la crêperie pas loin de là...Avec ce superbe groupe de connaissances, il nous suffisait d'une table, des chaises et un argument de conversation et on était partis pour des heures.ps: Je vous conseille vivement d'essayer la crêpe maison chocolat car elle n'est pas bonne...elle est délicieuse! J'ai beaucoup aimé les cours puisque nous étions une classe de 5, et nous faisions que parler. Sinon, notre excellent professeur, M. Connor, m' a enseigné de nouvelles choses et nous n'avons pas que appris, nous avons aussi fait de nombreuses activités qui m'ont beaucoup plu. Je conseillerais très fortement d'habiter dans la résidence, puisque en seulement une semaine, j'ai établi des liens très forts.

Testimonials

Leysin
Duration: 2 Weeks

Leysin is a little village in (the Swiss canton) Vaud, near Lake Geneva. The mountain village offers many sporting opportunities. It has a sports centre with tennis courts, a wave pool, a gym, squash courts and also an ice-rink. You can also play minigolf! I found the ESL school super! Every morning, all of the students go to the school, in classes suited to their language level, and then in the afternoon you do various activities. The ESL teachers are all young and affable people. Once a week, everyone goes to a rope course or water park, which is always fun. At the weekends, we explore the area around Lake Geneva and visit Lausanne, Montreux, Vevey or Geneva. I would recommend spending your holidays in Leysin, as you will not only find pleasure in the French language at the ESL school, but also many new friends!
