With its sunny terrace with views of the Alps, indoor swimming pool, spacious classrooms and large dining hall, the Leysin campus is sure to delight our younger participants! All students stay on-site in cosy bedrooms decorated in a traditional Alpine style. They can enjoy the multiple recreational areas to meet and have fun with their new international friends. The centre is located 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Leysin, near many shops and a wide variety of sports facilities for all tastes. This is the perfect location to make the most of the countless leisure options available in this exciting holiday resort!

Note: The course centre also welcomes younger participants, ages 8 to 14. The activities programme for the 13-17-year-olds, however, is organised separately.

Die Organisation vor Ort war mangelhaft. Fehlende Betreung und nicht einhalten der Lagerregeln. Die Lehrer verlangten viel zu viel obwohl die Schüler gesagt haben das sie es nicht schaffen. Aktivitäten in der Freizeit sind deswegen für unsere Klasse gestrichen worden.

Ich fand es sehr schön in Leysin, aber zum Teil waren sehr lange Busfahrten notwendig. Allgemein fand ich auch die Lage von dem Hotel sehr schön.

Testimonials

Tanja Zürcher
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!
