Leisure & supervision
The school provides top quality language education. Classes are held in small groups and activities are always fun to allow young students a rapid acquisition of the vocabulary, comprehension and practice of the language.
Every evening, organised and coached activities are offered to the participants (films, bowling, games without frontiers, table tennis, pools, table-soccer, etc.). Younger students are coached by bilingual teachers who can also communicate with them in their mother tongue, if necessary.
Camp stays take place at « val notre dame» . It's ideally located for both lessons and sports activities, and a great starting point for exploring the area during Summer holidays.
Students enjoy on-site residential accommodation and have lessons in the same building. They are fully supervised by trained camp counselors.
