Wednesday Afternoon English Programme

Improving English

Our Wednesday afternoon English class is for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years old who are currently enrolled in the local Swiss school system and possess a reasonable command of spoken English.

We offer:

  • Communicative language classes based on stories and familiar, high-interest themes;
  • Supportive phonics and skills;
  • The opportunity to explore and share in a multicultural environment;
  • Extensive library facilities;
  • Two levels of instruction

How it Works

You commit your child to the whole semester after one try-out session. If you do not wish your child to continue in the next semester, two months withdrawal notice is required:

  • The first semester started on 29 August 2018.
  • The second semester starts on 30 January 2019.


CHF 500.00 per semester; 18 sessions per semester.
