Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Learn French and ski the French Alps

Environment

The school and administration office recycle as much as possible and minimize paper use. We always encourage our students to do so too, not only during their classes but also in the local accommodation they are using. Our classrooms are all located in modern buildings which are insulated to prevent unnecessary heat loss in the winter thus reducing the amount of energy required.

In the summer, we encourage our students to go hiking and climbing on well established local trails so that they are not unknowingly contributing to the deterioration of the local environment. Our hikes and climbing activities are accompanied by local guides with specialist knowledge of the flora and fauna and natural environment, and this detailed understanding and knowledge is in turn passed on to the students.

Throughout the year all litter is taken back to the village and disposed of responsibly to minimise any negative impact on the mountain slopes and trails.

Community

We try to work with as many local suppliers as possible thus supporting the local economy and business people who live in the community. We encourage our students to buy food, outdoor equipment and any other items in village stores, where possible, and to socialise in local bars and cafes. Our students all live locally, in apartments where both tourists and locals live all year round, and through their French language classes they are able to converse and therefore be better integrated into local life.

We work with the local ski school, native French language teachers, specialist mountain guides and local transport providers to support local employment. By supporting these jobs, we are also able to enhance the stay of our students as they are meeting and living with native French speakers on a daily basis. We actively take part in local events and activities organised by the local community, such as parties organised to celebrate key national events in the year.
