Courses

English for adults

We offer a range of courses suitable for all students including general English, business English and exam preparation. 

Conversation group

Improve your fluency in a relaxed social environment.

The conversation classes are very popular with students who want to develop their confidence when speaking.


Each week we talk about a new theme.  Before the lesson, students read an article, listen to a podcast, or watch a video.  In the lesson, we study the new vocabulary together, then discuss the topic in pairs. Everyone gets plenty of time to talk, and students soon lose their fear of speaking. We finish with feedback on any errors to help students use their new vocabulary accurately.

Exam preparation

Our experienced teachers give you proven tips and strategies to help you pass your exam.

 

We help students prepare for the well-known and widely-recognised Cambridge examinations, such as the Cambridge English First Certificate (B2) and the more challenging C1 (Advanced) and C2 (Proficiency) examinations.

 

By providing a structured plan, we ensure that students enter  their exam well-prepared and confident. We share useful tips and strategies which maximise the chance of exam success, and supply a wide range of additional resources, such as quizzes and online vocabulary cards, to keep students motivated.

Book club

Would you like to discover new authors, read some of the classics and, at the same time, improve your English? Our book club is for advanced learners of English (minimum C1 level).

 

Every second month we read a book and then meet to discuss it. You'll be motivated to read English language books at home; your vocabulary and comprehension will improve without even having to study!

 

At the bi-monthly meetings, we have a general discussion about the book and the author, then we talk in pairs about the ideas and themes of the book.  There will be lots of reading at home and plenty of opportunity to speak in class.

Book club meets on the first Monday of every second month, from 7.30pm to 9pm. 50chf per session (300chf per year).

 

Individual lessons

Individual one-to-one lessons are ideal for people who like learning on their own with a flexible schedule.  Each course is customised to meet the student's needs and rate of progress.

 

We work with a textbook matched to your level which you can also use at home for further practice.  We cover grammar and work on all four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

 

In addition to the coursebook, students are given ideas on how to stay motivated and where to find English content related to their interests. Students who enjoy learning make excellent progress in these classes!

Private lessons cost 90 chf per hour.

These classes cost 130chf per hour plus room hire.

The conversation-style business English classes will help you to develop the language skills you need in the work environment.

All of our teachers have extensive experience in the business world. We will help you to use English in a clear and professional manner with both clients and colleagues, and recommend language resources appropriate for your business.

 

Lessons are interactive and themes are chosen which are relevant to the learners.
