We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Language & Hiking France

Fall in love with French—and France—in the French Alps.

Experience the beauty of the French language & landscape!

We’ve always approached learning French in our own, unique way. We knew we wanted native-speaker instructors. And, we wanted a lot of instruction. In class and out, five mornings a week. Because it’s summer, and we’re in the mountains, we also want to be outside, hiking. We love learning a gorgeous language and then heading up into the mountains for an afternoon of fresh air and fitness, friendships and fun. Join us in the Alps next summer!

"I loved Lake Annecy, speaking French, and the views at the top of the hike."

"Overland does a great job. I think a huge positive is taking away electronics and letting the kids really experience the culture and location without the noise of electronics."
