Annecy, FrancePicture of France

IFALPES, the Institut Francais des Alpes, with two sites -- Annecy or Chambery -- specializes in the teaching of French language courses. The methodology is direct and communicative, and the program is intensive -- four hours or more daily. The student body is drawn from countries around the world, not just American students. The academic program is under the supervision of the Universite Catholique de Lyon and is identical in Chambery and Annecy.  The administrative offices and classrooms of IFALPES Chambery are housed in the IPAG School of Management building so students have a daily contact with French students.

Annecy is located at the feet of the Alpine massifs and sits on the purest lake of Europe and has breathtaking scenery.  Known as the "Venice of the Alps, with its canals, Old Town, lake, castles, famous hotels and restaurants, Annecy is a bustling city all year round with lots to see and do.  Annecy offers students cultural and athletic activities within a very pleasant urban environment.

Chambery, the capital of Savoy is a charming city of art and history where students can easily meet the locals and discover the French culture.  It is also the gateway to world famous ski resorts Courchevel, Tignes, Val d'Isere and the regional, natural parks of Chartreuse, the Bauges and the Vanoise National Park.
