French Courses & Immersion Programs

French Immersion Programs

Whether you are seeking a structured and formal language program or just wish to focus on your French conversation skills, we have a language package to meet your requirements. We believe that combining your French course with the sporting and cultural activities will lead to more rapid progress and strengthen your knowledge of the language while minimising the ‘hard work’.

Our Linguistic and Cultural Centre takes you outside the classroom and into a more relaxed environment where your French speaking skills are developed further on a wider range of conversation topics.

The Swiss French Academy does not believe in the headphones and ‘repeat after me’ style of French courses favoured by so many other language schools. Our French immersion programs build your French language skills in real-world situations and our students are warmly welcomed by the residents and business owners of Crans-Montana.

Program Selection

To book a program with The Swiss French Academy all you need to do is:

  1. Choose your preferred Language Course Option
  2. Choose your preferred Activity Program

Each program will select from one of three French Course Options (4 hours per day, 2 hours per day or our Holiday program) and one of six Activity Programs (Culture, Skiing, Golf, Hiking, Wellness or Business). Your chosen Activity program will complement the formal language component of our courses and help to build your language skills in your area of interest.

All programs include 3 Star Hotel Accommodation and meals including breakfast, lunch (Mon-Fri), dinner and complimentary tea/coffee during formal training.
