Explore Chambéry, in the heart of the French Alps, with its historical buildings, museums, and opportunities for skiing and water sports. The two Savoyard departments, gateways to the French Alps yet benefitting from the warmer climate of the plains and France's largest lakes, are bordered on the north by Switzerland and on the east by Italy. Savoie is about three hours from Paris and the Mediterranean coast. Tourists enjoy the area for its quality of life, magnificent natural surroundings, history and heritage, and breath-taking Alpine and cross-country skiing and water sports. Chambéry was the capital of the former Duchy of Savoie.

The Institut Savoisien d'Études Françaises (ISEFE) at the Université de Savoie ISEFE is a university institute specializes in teaching French as a foreign language to students from non-Francophone countries. French language and culture courses are provided for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. Courses aim to expand students' knowledge of French culture while honing their reading, speaking, and listening skills. Students are placed in appropriate language levels according to a placement exam taken before arrival. Students can also enroll in up to two additional courses per week organized by the International Relations Office that are specifically designed for international students. In addition to these courses, one or two special seminars on aspects of French culture will be offered and three or four excursions and activities relating to aspects of French culture and contemporary life will be included in the program fee each semester.
