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.
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.
Insted arranges a number of activities. This is a perfect opportunity to practice French, explore Chamonix and its surroundings and also a chance to get to know the other students better.
