« Ja, der Sprachaufenthalt hat meine Französischkenntnisse erweitert. Die tägliche Anwendung in der Schule wie auch ausserhalb sind natürlich sehr hilfreich. Gut war auch, dass die Gastmutter nur französisch gesprochen hat und kommunikativ war.Die Spiele am Morgen waren toll. - ein grosses plus! - »

Alex hat es gut gefallen. Er war mit wenig Enthusiasmus abgereist (da er Französisch überhaupt nicht liebt) und hat nach seiner Rückkehr gemeint, dass wenn er nochmals gehen müsste, würde er wieder nach Montreux wollen. Das ist die höchste Auszeichnung, die man vom ihm erwarten kann - also Note 5. Ausserordentlich nette, freundliche Gastmutter. Weil Alex fast kein französisch spricht, war die Kommunikation am Anfang etwas schwierig. Sie hat sich aber viel Mühe gemacht, langsam gesprochen etc. Alex war sehr glücklich, mit einem gleichaltrigen Jungen einquartiert zu sein. Als Mutter bin ich mit dem Programm für die Schüler und die Aufsicht absolut happy.Alex hat gemeint, dass sie fast nicht alleine atmen durften - aber wenn das mein Sohn so empfindet, stimmt es für mich als Elternteil genau!

Host family
The school personally selects the families in charge of welcoming young students. The students stay in a double room, shared with another participant. This accommodation option is one of the best ways to immerse yourself totally in the culture of the region. In this way, thanks to daily contact with the family, you will learn how to express yourself directly in French and to get to know the mentality and the way of life of the French-speaking Swiss.

Please note: 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 (one half-day and one full-day) excursions 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...
