Program Overview

Program Description:
At Insted in Chamonix, France, we want there to be more to learning French than sitting in a classroom conjugating verbs. We believe in the total experience which is why Insted was started in the first place. Not only do we want our student’s to be immersed in the French culture and every day living for the benefit of their language studies, but we want them to have the opportunity to indulge in their favorite alpine sports and activities. Many people refer to this lifestyle as ‘living the dream’, and we totally agree. For those more interested in the beach lifestyle, we have expanded on our original ‘ski & study’ concept to include ‘surf & study’ by teaming up with top language schools in Biarritz, San Sebastian and Tennerife. The choice is yours, live the dream. Ski, Surf & Study!??

Our school offers a unique possibility to combine high quality French language studies with outdoor mountain activities. Our center is located in Chamonix Mont-Blanc in the Alps and is the only French language school in France where the students have direct access to the ski slopes. In the winter, conditions for skiing and snowboarding are among the best in the world, and in the summer activities like climbing, mountain biking and hiking attract an international crowd of adventurous people. The school is open all year round. Stay for a few weeks or enroll to a semester course. Our most popular courses is the classic Winter course from mid January to beginning of May or the Summer courses given from mid June to mid September. Our teachers hold a university degree in FLE, and have been carefully selected to work at our school with the expertise from our partner CUEF in Grenoble. They are energetic, young at mind and ready to welcome students of all nationalities and ages. Don't get surprised if our teachers socialize with the students at the indoor climbing wall or at the ski slope outside course hours.

From the very first lesson onwards, all teaching is conducted in French even for beginners. We believe it is essential for you to develop an ear for French as quickly as possible. All the courses are well structured to allow you to develop at your own level and pace. Our courses will improve your ability to express yourself and to understand French:?? * Written comprehension * Oral comprehension * Written skills * Oral skills???? After completing your course you will receive an attestation listing your oral and written grades. All grades are given on a scale of 0-20 where a 10 means you have passed. Your attendance and participation in class is also mentioned and taken into consideration.??
