Alpine French School

Alpine French School was originally set up in 2003 as Lost In Translation offering French courses to the local expat community and English courses to the local French community and then to people visiting the area on holiday wishing to study French. The school now welcomes international students to the Alps to learn French in the villages of Morzine and Les Gets.

The School offers a wide range of traditional French courses, including business French courses, intensive French courses and French online learning packages in conjunction with Tell Me More/Rosetta Stone as well as courses with sporting activities such as skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and climbing.

The format is simple, effective and fun – students combine ski holidays with lessons in French, skiing most of the day with classroom sessions during the late afternoon. Partnering with the ESF (Ecole du Ski Francais), to provide on-slope tuition, the pupils enjoy ski lessons in French and then slot into their classes afterwards.

Alpine French School arranges the entire holiday that includes accommodation, ski passes, airport transfers and ski lessons – courses last anything between one week and a whole season (16 weeks).

They are a French government recognised training provider.
