Learn French and English in Leysin (Switzerland) with friLingue

 

Located right in the center of the village, our chic hotel offers-up breathtaking views of the Swiss and French Alps, a restaurant with local and international cuisine. Sports facilities are located just a 10 minute walk away.

Our courses take place in small groups of around 6 participants. Our young, friendly and dynamic team of teachers are there to ensure that you'll learn and develop your French or English skills with joy and good humour this summer!

We also offer a full activity and excursion programme and we have our own private classroom and recreational space within the hotel as well as access to Leysin's indoor and outdoor sports facilities.

Of course, it wouldn't be a summer camp in the Swiss Alps if we didn't make the most of the beautiful nature around us; during our afternoon excursions we'll offer hikes of difficulty levels to suit all ages and abilities!

We also offer trips to the Adventure Park in Aigle, as well as laser tag in Villenueve and cultural visits to Lausanne, Caplin's World in Vevey and the world famous Chillon Castle, best known as the birthplace of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Do you want to bring your family along for the adventure? We can also offer hotel rooms, apartments and even language courses for parents or guardians who wish to hang out and share your adventure in this picturesque environment.

In Leysin you have the option to participate in a professional horse riding course for 3 x 2 hour sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons after lunch. All under the supervision of trained equestrian instructors provided by our partner in Leysin.
