Alpadia, Montreux
Duration: 2 weeks

I spent two great weeks refreshing my French skills in Montreux. Alpadia has really nice teachers and the school location is perfect: it’s right in the centre just metres from the lake. The Montreux Jazz Festival was also on whilst I was there. There was a real festival atmosphere with bands from all over the world and great parties!

Duration: 3 weeks

During my language study trip, I stayed with a friendly host family. Homestay accommodation is ideal to learn the language.

At school, I learnt a lot during this short stay. I am very satisfied with the school. Our teachers were very friendly and explained everything very clearly. In the morning, I was happy to go to school.

I love Montreux, the town is beautiful. You can play mini-golf, go to the cinema, to the fitness centre or go shopping. As there is a station in Monteux, it is easy to visit the neighbouring towns and villages. What’s more, you can take part in the school’s activities programme.

I had a great, memorable stay in Montreux and I met many friendly people there. I recommend ESL to everyone!

Alpadia, Montreux
Duration: 8 weeks

Montreux is simply great! I fully enjoyed my language stay of two weeks there. My host family was very friendly and showed flexibility. The school, its central location and its competent teachers were a real stroke of luck for me. I enjoyed myself a lot and I was able to prepare in an optimal way for the BMS exam. I can only warmly recommend a language stay at Alpadia Montreux!
