General information about our language courses

This section is important for those who wish to know more about what is included in our course packages and how we teach in the classroom.

Language courses

Insted has provided language courses since our formation in 1999. Since the start we have been approved by the Swedish “National Board for Educa­tio­nal Assis­tance” (CSN), which is supporting evidence of the quality of our language courses. Our teachers here at Insted are not only teachers, they are specialists in teaching French to non-French speaking students, as a second language. We cooperate with (CUEF) Université Stendhal i Grenoble who oversee the level of our teaching at Insted. Students of all levels can book a course with us, from total beginners to teachers who are looking for a boost. Our intensive courses help students gain a basic and instantly usable conversation level of French, which is perfect for everyday life in Chamonix. An intensive course is definitely the fastest way to learn French. We think that reading and writing is very important but building dialogue and gaining the ability to speak is the main focus of our courses.

Accommodation

We always guarantee accommodation for our students but remember to book in advance as your preferred option may be booked up already. You can read more about our accommodation here

Lift pass

Insted has been working with Compagnie du Mont Blanc for several years. As our student we can offer you a reduced price on the seasonal lift pass if you study 4 weeks or longer. You must provide us with a passport photo and pay the full amount, minimum 1 week, before arrival. You can then collect your lift pass from our school reception and get straight into the mountains!
