The oxygen of the Alps

We run separate Alpadia French, German and English Summer, Spring and Fall courses for juniors (8-14 years) and teens (13-17) years from our 'Le Central Residence' center, which is close to Leysin's main train station. It offers renovated classrooms, a restaurant, a sunny terrace and an indoor swimming pool as well as a games area. 

Located in the Swiss Alps just 30 minutes from Lake Geneva, Leysin has been a popular tourist destination for more than a century. The town holds the exclusive Swiss 'Families Welcome' label, which means the quality and safety of activities for children and teens is at an extremely high standard, making this an ideal place for young students to learn a language abroad for the first time.

Junior and teenage students can enjoy a wide range of sports and leisure activities on this stunning Alpine resort, as well as excursions to Montreux, Lausanne and amusement parks. We run separate social programs for our junior and teen students, with activities catered towards the different age groups.
