LSI, Zürich
Duration: 6 weeks

I found this school thanks to ESL. Perfectly located near Lake Zurich and the city centre, the school is very interesting. The lessons are really good and the teachers very friendly. Besides, Zurich is a very beautiful city which offers many visits and outings.

Duration: 13 weeks

Although Zurich is a small city there are so many things to do and you don’t need to take a cab to get there. The LSI school is in a great location, close to the lake and not far from the city centre. At first I stayed with a host family but after four weeks I felt the need for more independence. The office staff were very helpful and I was able to make the change with no problems. I took my Goethe B2 exam last week and my course ends this week. I just hope I have done enough to pass.

LSI, Zürich
Duration: 7 weeks

I come from a small village in the French part of Switzerland. As often happens in my country I had time between leaving school and starting an apprenticeship. At first I thought I might learn English in the UK but when I found out the company I am going to work for has a lot of contact with German-speakers, the decision was clear. I came to Zurich instead and I don’t regret it for one minute. The teachers here have really helped build on my school-German and the host family I am staying with is very friendly.

Host family
Staying with a host family is ideal for discovering the Swiss culture and practicing your German outside of the classroom in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Located 30-40 minutes from the school, you will have your own room and breakfast and dinner provided daily.

Our partner school’s activities program is designed to help you discover all that Zurich has to offer.

On the weekends, you can go hiking or try rafting, snowboarding or mountain bike riding. Why not also discover Basel, Bern or Lucerne, just an hour away by train. Located in the centre of Europe, Switzerland makes an ideal base from which you can easily visit neighboring countries like Austria, France, Germany or Italy.
