We realize that our reputation is the reflection of the work and passion our teaching staff and administrative team have. They are dynamic and have rich and varied experiences behind them.
Our year-round schools and summer camps are ideally located so that you can take full advantage of the range of entertainment opportunities on offer at your chosen location. Close to our adult course centers, you will find practical transport links, great shopping streets, lively nightlife areas, as well as parks to relax and practice sports.
Our summer camps are ideally located in and around cultural and tourist attractions, providing entertaining activities and enjoyable excursions.
We use a modern and effective teaching method delivered by qualified teachers, offering well-planned, enjoyable and motivating lessons adapted to all language levels. With a limited number of students per class, maximum interaction between teacher and students is encouraged and every opportunity is taken to exercise the learned language in the classroom and outside. Our approach is aimed at achieving concrete results, making communication the priority.
Our student mix

Our Swiss quality standards, which we carefully apply to all our schools, make all the difference. For our adult students, Lyon, Montreux, Freiburg and Berlin enjoy a particularly advantageous cost of living, which enhances the excellent quality-price ratio.
Our summer camps propose a generous program of included package activities; numerous sports, exciting and educational excursions as well as entertaining evenings. This ensures that our summer camp students benefit from learning the language in an environment that provides maximum fun!
