Montreux è una città davvero stupenda; sono contenta di averla potuta vedere durante il festival. Fin dal primo giorno mi sono trovata subito a mio agio perché le mie compagne di stanza ed io siamo sempre state trattate come se fossimo state le figlie di Marilza; lei è davvero una donna bravissima, simpatica e gentile.

Host family
The school personally selects the families in charge of welcoming young students. Students stay in double rooms, shared with another participant. This accommodation option is one of the best ways to immerse yourself completely in the region’s culture. Thanks to your daily interactions with the family, you will learn how to express yourself in French in total immersion, all while getting to know first-hand the way of life of the French-speaking Swiss.

Please note that this type of accommodation is best suited to independent students who will be able to get to the school on their own using public transport.

The school organises a leisure programme with numerous sports and cultural activities, including beach volleyball, swimming, evenings by the lake or sightseeing trips in the region to keep you entertained after your French classes! Two excursions (one half-day and one full-day) are organised every week, allowing you to explore the treasures of this wonderful area: visit Vevey and its "Alimentarium" museum, take a steamboat trip up Lake Geneva, visit Lausanne and its Olympic Museum and much more!
