Insted Language School is situated at the heart of the French Alps and offers students the opportunity to combine French language learning with an adventure sports holiday experience of a lifetime. Insted offers weekly to semester long courses and takes the hassle out of students stays, offering a range of shared to private accommodation options. The school is located in central Chamonix with walking distance to ski lifts, cafés, restaurants and the accommodation. Our teachers hold a university degree in FLE, and have been carefully selected to work at our school with the expertise from our partner CUEF in Grenoble. They are energetic, young at mind and ready to welcome students of all nationalities and ages. Don't get surprised if our teachers socialize with the students at the indoor climbing wall or at the ski slope outside course hours.
