« Der Kurs gab mir viel Sicherheit, welches ich gleich in die Praxis umsetzten konnte. Der Unterricht war einfacher gestaltet, als der Unterricht, welchen ich gewohnt bin. Jedoch war es sehr gut alles noch einmal langsam anzuschauen und ich konnte in den unsicheren Themen aufarbeiten. »

Der Standort der Schule ist sehr gut, nahe beim See. Auch die Frauen an der Rezeption waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit.Wegen des Covid-Virus waren leider viele Deutsch-Schweizer an der Schule. Die Klassenräume waren teilweise etwas klein und laut. Die Stimmung in den einzelnen Klassen war gut und angenehm, auch wenn ich zu den Ältesten zählte. Der Unterricht war je nach Lehrperson sehr unterschiedlich. Das strukturierte Vorgehen hat mir oft gefehlt. Da die Wohnung sehr nahe an der Bahnlinie liegt, kann ich sie nicht mit einem guten Gewissen empfehlen. Der Kontakt zu den Studierenden war mehrheitlich gut und interessant.

« Ja ich denke, dass ich mich im Französisch verbessert habe. Ich getraue mich schneller zu reden, auch wenn es vielleicht grammatikalisch nicht ganz korrekt ist. Auch hat sich mein Wortschatz vergrössert. »

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!

AlpadiaMontreux 
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!
