What our clients say

'All targets reached… four weeks very, very intensive…. Executive Homestay accommodation was perfect (nice family, close to school 15 mins on foot). Excellent trainers... non-stop learning in a very friendly environment.'

Daniel Spichiger
Vice-President Investment Advisory
Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch & Cie

 

'My decision to move from the Canton of Geneva to private enterprise was one of my most important career decisions. My professional skills were in demand but my career options were limited by my lack of English communication skills. I chose The Language House as my English language partner on the recommendation of a colleague. It has been a most rewarding and successful relationship and much more than just learning to communicate confidently and fluently in English. It has opened doors to a new culture, information, ideas, humour, literature, travel and professional relationships. The Language House has organised language courses for me in Geneva and immersion programmes in English-speaking countries. I have studied in Holland Park in London, in the cathedral city of Canterbury and in the countryside of Wales. Each course has been superbly organised, and the quality of training has exceeded my expectations. However, my most enjoyable courses have been English for Lunch here in Geneva – private courses in English over lunch with The Language House director Garry Littman. I do not hesitate in recommending the services of The Language House.'

'My time in London was well worth it. I sense a big difference in my confidence and fluency in English. I can explain myself better in presentations and meetings without having to think too much about my language. The teachers were excellent. I had small group courses with between 3 and 5 participants and also private lessons. I also visited the London Stock Exchange, Metals Exchange and new Docklands with my private teacher. My Executive Homestay family was very friendly and close to the school. Overall it was a successful and rewarding experience. My thanks to The Language House for the choice and organisation of this training course'

Hans Flückiger

Head Institutional Banking Basel Advisory
Bank Sarasin & Cie AG

 

'The training centre was very professional and the teachers very interesting. I was impressed by their wide culture and knowledge. It was possible to talk about sports, politics, entertainment, travel, music, theatre and a lot of different others things. The one-to-one lessons were good but very hard. It was not possible to have a bit of rest. There is pressure on you to speak and think in English at every moment, every day! The mix of small group courses and private training was a good combination. My Executive Homestay family was friendly and welcoming. I had contact in the morning for breakfast, in the evening for dinner three times a week and sometimes in the weekend. I would like thank The Language House for the good organisation and if I need more information about language training I won't hesitate to call you.'

'The two-week immersion course exceeded my expectations. I improved my confidence and grasp of English. I'm waiting for the next opportunity to go back. I especially enjoyed the richness of the small group synergy. We shared different cultural perspectives and our professional backgrounds and experience…'

'I am very satisfied with the course here. It's a very good balance between intensive study and a relaxing atmosphere. Many thanks for your assistance.'

'My limited time was used extremely efficiently. The teaching methodology was practical, well-organised and well-presented. The teachers were motivated and attentive. I felt they were able to quickly identify and rectify my weaknesses. My accommodation with an executive family was a pleasant and enjoyable surprise'

Christophe Zimmerman
Founder, co-director Institut érasm Geneva

 

'The program was exactly what I was looking for. The classes were so realistic - meetings, presentations and negotiations - that sometimes I thought I was still at work. My Homestay accommodation was comfortable and only 5 minutes walk from the school. The food at the school was excellent and I ate breakfast and lunch there every day'

Marisol Redonet-Valdes
Customer Service Manager Geneva

 

'I enjoyed my London training very much. I was very impressed by the organisation of the course: it was very efficient; we were only four students to one teacher so I could improve my English rather quickly, especially in vocabulary and in talking more fluently through workshops. I could also correct basic grammatical errors. The accommodation was also perfect. I was lucky to stay at only 300 meters from the school in a very nice area, that I would like to recommend warmly to anybody. In conclusion, it was very useful and successful for me. I would like to thank you for everything you have done'

Marco Föllmi, Membre de la Direction, Banque Nationale Suisse

 

'Well-organised and efficient training… The teachers and staff were very professional. It was a pleasure to stay with my family'

Bruno Buergin
Head of IT Audit
Bank Sarasin & Cie AG Basel

 

'We are always speaking English; from breakfast to bedtime. You almost always have a teacher with you. Now I’m more confident. I work hard, and I'm very tired in the evening. However, I can believe that I'm on holiday…The food is much better than expected. Many students come here for the second time or more.'

Philippe Fontaine Senior Vice-President
Tax Department

'My experience in London was extremely rich both pedagogically and personally. In my private lessons the different trainers were extremely attentive and picked up my weaknesses and gave me supplementary material that reflected my needs… a really superb experience'

Nadine Hurni
Human Resources Manager
Hospital Cantonal de Genève

 

'It was a period of discovery – not just English. There was an interesting mix of nationalities in my classes. The contact with my Homestay family was fantastic. He was an English teacher and his wife was Japanese and an excellent cook'

Daniel Burnier
Technical Assistant
Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

 

'The Language House in Geneva helped me find exactly the course I wanted. In four weeks in London I was able to develop my professional communication skills and prepare and sit an international exam for lawyers. My time was used extremely efficiently. The quality of teaching offered by the school trainers and the general school services were really excellent'
