Students will have the chance to get to know each other better and practise French outside the classroom during the outings and excursions organised by the school. Sporting activities are organised in summer and winter alike. Thanks to its geographical location, between a lake and mountains, Montreux is less than an hour from the Alps. Numerous ski resorts offer excellent conditions for fans of snowboarding and skiing, as well as extraordinary scenery for nature-lovers. During the month of July, Montreux is home to the famous Montreux Jazz Festival that gives the town a lively rhythm. Add to this event the numerous exhibitions and noteworthy cultural events in Montreux and the surrounding areas of Vevey, Lausanne and Geneva, and you have a tempting activities programme!
