Why choose Alpadia?


Swiss Quality

We offer stimulating and dynamic lessons adapted to all language levels. Our small class sizes allow teachers to help students individually, and our social programmes enable students to put their new language skills into practice.



From help with booking accommodation and arranging travel insurance to organising airport transfers and accompanied pickup for children, we’ll do everything we can to make your trip run as smoothly as possible.



Our adult schools are conveniently located near to major cultural attractions, vibrant city centres and international airports. Junior students have a generous choice of camp locations – in the heart of the city, by a tranquil lake, at the foot of the mountains or secluded in the forest. 



Our adult schools are recognised by official Swiss, French, German and international organisations that specialise in education and international tourism. When you study with Alpadia, you’re choosing one of the most respected language schools around.

Social responsibility

Alpadia’s mission is to encourage language development through immersion and to expand the horizons of our students. Inspired by our multifaceted and multilingual country, we know that learning and communicating in different languages is key to being part of a changing world and to promoting sustainability.
