Activities and excursions
In order to help you make the most of these leisure activities, we have an enormous amount of information on everything that’s available in the area, and we are always on hand to help make bookings or with membership applications (e.g. for a health club).

In order to help you to discover Montreux, the Riviera and the surrounding area, we offer excursions and activities led by a member of the school staff once a week during the low season and twice during July and August. These include visits to the famous Château de Chillon, pleasure trips on the lake in one of the old-style paddleboats, or trips to the leisure centre and bowling alley. These activities take place at the beginning of the week and are not included in the course price.

Vis-a-Vis Plus

* Excellent location, studying on the shores of Lake Geneva, in the foothills of the Alps.
* Teachers are highly qualified and regularly participate in training sessions.
* Small group size.
* A modern, lively and dynamic teaching programme.


The vast majority of our students choose to stay with a host family. It is unquestionably the most effective way to really plunge yourself into French-speaking culture and to make rapid progress. There’s no doubt that students who choose to live with a French-speaking family assimilate the language much more rapidly. Daily contact with the family enables you to practise the language constantly, as well as to explore the mentality, expressions and customs of the French-speaking Swiss people in a pleasant and friendly setting. Friendships are often forged, and many students keep in contact with their host families long after their stay has ended.

We choose our host families with great care, we visit them and we know them all. What’s more, because we believe that your accommodation is an extremely important part of your stay, we maintain regular contact with our host families, and twice a year we organise large get-togethers to which all the host families and students are invited.
