Learn French while skiing in France

New ski and French courses combine a winter sports holiday with language lessons in Morzine with Alpine French School.

British-French run school in the ski resort of Morzine now blends a holiday on the snow with a chance to improve your French language skills.

The recent re-branding of French Alpine School (formally Lost in Translation) has also seen a move to a centrally located premises in the heart of Morzine, opposite the tourist office. With the introduction of new accommodation for the 2015-16 winter season, including a four star catered chalet, Alpine French School has now established itself as the leading centre for French language in the Alps.

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.

Ski lessons are optional and can also offer French conversation = skiing sessions with one of the teachers for students who can already ski and therefore don’t need lessons.

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).

‘We find a real variety of people travel to Morzine and stay with us; everyone from students to families who’d like to improve their French and holiday in the fantastic surroundings of the French Alps – both in summer and winter’, says founder Helen Watts.

There’s a brand new four star chalet (Guytaune) for this winter season that comes with its own French chef. This forms part of a varied portfolio of accommodation options that include self-catered, B&B, family hosted and hotel choices.

Package example, based on double occupancy in Chalet Guytaune in January (not New Year week):

From €995.00 including: French Intensive Course 3h per day 15h-18h15, Champagne and canapés upon arrival, accommodation in chalet Guytaune including full breakfast, afternoon tea and a 4-course meal with complimentary wine prepared and served by resident French chef, French conversation over apéritifs and dinner, SNOW Concierge service to arrange any additional extras guests wish to add to their holiday: airport transfers, restaurant bookings, activity bookings, massage, spa and childcare bookings.
