Experience unforgettable language holidays with friLingue!

 

We cordially invite you to our own lodge in Siviez at the foot of the largest ski area in Switzerland - the 4 Vallée. The house has 4, 6 and 8-bedded rooms and is located next to the small river Printse. Here we teach French and English in small groups of 6 students per group. Whether you are a beginner or maybe an expert, we offer language courses for every level.


Unforgettable language holidays? That's the way it is! It's almost the same for everyone. In the beginning, the youngsters are quite shy and their motivation might not be at the highest level. But after a few hours, a smile almost always appears on the lips of the participants. After two or three weeks, the participants themselves are motivated to initiate a conversation in either French or English very casually because they have learned that knowing a language is a wonderful skill that opens many doors and builds bridges across nations. Many parents later share the success stories with us, i.e. that the school performance has increased by an entire grade! :)


Learn French and English during the school holidays with friLingue

 

Siviez is located above Sion and was previously called Super Nendaz. Since we liked that term so much, we've decided to also call our brand new camp - Camp ''Super Nendaz'' and we promise you - it will be better than SUPER!


The holiday camp in Siviez (canton of Valais) is aimed towards young people between 8 and 17 years of age. Lessons take place in small groups of an average of 6 students per class. Our friendly and dynamic teachers will show you what friLingue is best known for learning languages ​​with joy.

WORKSHOPS

We currently offer a wide array of workshops, such as sports workshops (football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, ultimate frisbee, American football, etc.), art workshops (painting, drawing, graffiti, dance, yoga, meditation, etc.), cooking workshops and many else.
 

EVENING ACTIVITIES

Evening activities are the shining star of our language camp program, the cherry on top! We always put in the extra effort to include each and every student into the activity that's planned for the evening, and those activities are: disco night, karaoke night, card and board games night, casino night, movie night, campfire, zombie & werewolf games, sardines, reverse hide&seek, and many else.


EXCURSIONS

Half-day excursions

 

Right after their language lessons and lunch, we take our students to one of the nearby attractive locations near Super Nendaz camp, which might be:
Salt mines in Bex - a place where we descend into the dark pit and the intricate labyrinth of the salt mines.
Adventure park in Sion - a place that guarantees a metric ton of fun!
Domaine des Iles - a beautiful and pristine lake near the city of Sion will definitely leave a great impression on you.

 

Full-day excursions

 

Aletsch glacier - this excursion is quite possibly the most physically demanding excursion our camps have to offer but mark our words - it is worth every drop of sweat. Once you get up there at an altitude of little more than 2600m, you will witness the true greatness our majestic Swiss nature has to offer.
Sion - a city less than half an hour drive away from Super Nendaz camp, it has a rich history with a fortress in the middle of the city. Definitely worth visiting and spending a couple of hours there.
Grand Dixence dam- an architectural masterpiece with stunning hiking tracks and breathtaking panoramic views.
