The world’s most compact international city

Geneva is a surprisingly small city that punches well above its weight in the world of business and international affairs. It has a population of just 190,00 of which 40 per cent are foreigners. This gives the city a unique international feel where you can often hear four different languages while pushing your shopping trolley down just one supermarket aisle. The locals speak French, but almost everyone speaks some degree of English which is the official language for the many international organisations and business headquarters based in the city.

Geneva is built on the shores of Lake Geneva —the largest lake in Europe. Locally, it is called Lac Léman. The Rhône River also flows through the city. France is a stone throw away, as are some of the finest ski reports in Europe. Geneva is an expensive city, but at the same time offers visitors and residents an exceptional quality of life.

We’ve been teaching English in Geneva for more than 15 years; mostly private 1:1 and small group courses.
