My 2 children (9 and 6) attended in the summer of 2017 and had a fantastic time and experience - both the lessons and afternoon activities. Very friendly and inclusive environment with a clever way of teaching. Have rebooked for summer 2018.

teaching was very laid back/poor food

I booked this course for my 2 boys, 10 and 13, to learn French for 2 weeks in August 2015. They complained that food was very poor - mainly pasta and potatoes every day for 2 weeks, no meet, no local french food. Teaching was very laid back. Teachers themselves were unengaged and uninterested in students. Despite consent-forms which I completed at the beginning, my children were not allowed to visit the town themselves, so they literally stayed in the camp all two weeks with an exception of a couple of tours. Mountain biking was not safe guarded, in the UK such attitude to the safety would not be allowed. The whole experience was disappointing.

Hi Zarina, I just read your review and I am sorry to hear that your sons didn't enjoy the camp. I wish you had contacted us during their stay so that we could have addressed some of these issues as other students who were with us at the same time enjoyed their experience. I wanted to reassure you that our mountain bike activity partner is fully accredited by the French Ministry of Sport and checked by them and ourselves each year, as are all of our activity partners. Our students' safety is our top priority. Your sons attended our Summer Camp more than 2 years ago. The Camp is now run at a different premises with different Directors and a completely different organisation, so while we do appreciate your comments and feedback, these are no longer relevant to the services we offer today. We personally strive to offer the best quality and professional service after 15 years of experience and thousands of students attending our adult and junior courses. Please accept our apologies in the case of your sons. Best wishes, Helen

The course and teacher have been fantastic. My only problem is the course is in the middle of the a busy part of the season for me. I do not have quite as much time as I would like for the homework. Excellent couse , it has filled in a lot of holes.

Avant le cours, e n'osais pas à parler le français. Le cours m'aidait pour gagner plus de confiance. j'ai rafraichi la grammaire et appris l'utililiser dans une conversation.

Private French Lessons

I have, so far, taken 30 private French lessons with Alpine French school and have been incredibly impressed with the teaching, the organisation, and with the general helpfulness. Having never studied French at school, I started my lessons as a total beginner. Lucile, my teacher, planned lessons to meet my specific needs, used a range of activities to ensure my understanding, and was incredibly kind. Having taken these lessons, I can now handle most of the day-to-day situations in which I find myself while living in France, and my confidence in more complex conversational skills is growing. I cannot recommend Alpine French School highly enough.

I have been attending courses here for several years, they are extremely helpful and happy to prepare and teach lessons around my requirements. I have attended summer weekly courses, private lessons and their intensive courses and have found them very useful. Very friendly and helpful teachers.
