Tailor-made courses

The Language Center designs tailor-made English courses on request for clients from UZH and ETH Zurich. Our clients are academic staff, doctoral students, postdoc groups, and logistics and service organization staff. The language levels that have been covered in the past range from A0 (complete beginner) to C2+ (native-speaker competence).

The course formats are designed to meet our clients’ needs. For example, in the past, we have run half-day workshops; 15-week courses of 90 minutes a week; and short academic writing courses combined with one-to-one coaching sessions. Groups typically consist of between 3 and 12 participants, although one-off lectures on specific topics are available to considerably larger groups.
