The best way to really learn a language is to hear and use it all day, in all sorts of situations: during lessons, at meal times, whilst playing games or doing sports. Study in class – practice in real life. This is fun and motivating. Experienced language trainers from academia Zürich know how to make that happen. The morning lessons in German, English or French are taught to small groups of an average of ten students. Up to six language levels are offered in German and English, so individual attention and focused tuition are guaranteed. The advanced English and German courses focus on communicative competence, often relating to global issues, and also on creative writing, both narrative and descriptive. Two levels are offered in French: The Beginners' class (A1) for children with absolutely no knowledge of French and the Elementary class (A2) for children with a basic understanding of French.
