Our STANDARD course is an excellent choice if you want to improve your language skills and to have free time on your hands.

Activities - leisure:
• The Swiss Riviera and Montreux offer wide-ranging activities for you to enjoy in addition to your language classes. From spring to autumn, you can take part in numerous mountain and water sports during your French course in Montreux: climbing, paragliding, sailing, waterskiing, stand up paddle or mountain-biking... the Riviera is a real sports paradise.
• Take time out to visit the famous medieval Château de Chillon, sail on a hundred-yearold steamboat on Lake Geneva, or just stroll along the lake banks among the palm trees and exotic flowers. Between March and September, music festival fever hits the region, with highlights including the Cully Jazz, Montreux Jazz and the Paléo of Nyon.
• In winter, just 30 minutes away from Montreux, you will find one of the world’s largest ski resorts. “Les Portes du Soleil” has everything, from ice skating rinks to toboggan runs and snowshoe trekking. There is nowhere better to really enjoy the winter months. For four weeks in December, Montreux also plays host to Switzerland’s largest and most famous Christmas market. Whenever you come, you will always find something to do in Montreux.
