The best cities to learn a language in Switzerland

With four official languages and even more local dialects, Switzerland is a truly multilingual country and an ideal place in which to learn French, German or English.

Dramatic Alpine landscapes, lush green pastures and picturesque villages give Switzerland its characteristic rural beauty. It’s the land of the great outdoors, where skiing and snowboarding, hiking and biking, and white-water rafting aren’t just for thrill-seekers, they’re typical weekend activities. But beyond the folklore and tradition, Switzerland has always been a forward-thinking place, home to innovative restaurants, architecture and galleries.
