Language Courses

Languages are an important part of our camp and we want it to be fun!

Campers can choose between intensively learning 1 language per session (15 hours per week) or 2 languages (1 major 10 hours per week and 1 minor 5 hours per week)

The languages we offer are:

  • – French
  • – German
  • – English
  • – Chinese (can only be chosen as a minor language and at beginner level)
  • French is the language spoken in the region of Valais-Ovronnaz. The locals and half of the staff are native speakers. It would be a very good option to choose this language as it is spoken in the village and the surrounding area!

    German is the first spoken language in Switzerland. Many locals and part of the staff speak it natively. Also we will do many excursions in the Swiss German part so campers can have many opportunities to speak it with Swiss people!

    English, with French is the main language of the camp. All staff speak it fluently and half are native speakers. Also most campers use it to communicate between themselves so it is definitely a great opportunity to learn English and become fluent while having fun on holiday!

    Chinese as you probably know is NOT a Swiss nor European language; however more and more international schools are encouraging students to learn it for their future development and life opportunities. With the option to choose it as a minor language you will have the chance to learn the basic of the most widely spoken language in the world . . . and it is fun!!!
