Intensive English Course in Small Groups

Do you want to learn English as quickly as possible, for example for professional reasons or for your next holidays? Then an intensive course is what you need. At the Winterthur Sprachen Akademie, we offer courses at all levels, from beginners to advanced (A1 to C2), and lessons take place in the morning. You can learn English at a reasonable price, for example, Fr. 300,- for two weeks.

You can choose between two different options. If you want to learn quickly, it is best to take a normal intensive course. Lessons take place from Monday to Friday and last three hours a day. A more relaxed option is the semi-intensive course. Here lessons are scheduled from Monday to Thursday for one and a half hours per day. If you are working, this course is particularly suitable for you as lessons take place in the evening.

Courses at all levels

The Sprachen Akademie offers courses at all levels (A1 to C2). If you are a beginner, it is easier to find the right course. But if you already have some previous knowledge, you can take a free placement test either online or at our school. Afterward, our experts will determine the right course for you based on your results.

Courses for different target groups

The reasons for learning English are very different. If you are a professional, but still want to make rapid progress, you can choose the semi-intensive course with lessons scheduled in the evening. If on the other hand, you want to progress faster, the intensive course with lessons in the morning is the best choice, especially for holiday courses. Just come to Winterthur for a week or two and improve your English significantly and in a short time. In addition to our regular English courses, we also offer special courses in Business English. There you will learn how to conduct business, negotiation and sales conversations in English as well as the principles of English business correspondence. In this way, you will become more successful in your professional life.

Teaching in small groups

Group size is a decisive factor for your learning success. The intensive courses are taught exclusively in small groups so that you can speak as much as possible. The focus is on the active use of the language. This way you learn vocabulary and grammar almost by yourself and the learning effort is reduced. That’s why our teachers make a point of ensuring that you speak the language regularly.

Quick success thanks to qualified teachers

Naturally, all our language teachers are native speakers so that you learn the correct pronunciation from the very beginning. They also have pedagogical skills, because teachers must not only master the language, they must also be able to pass it on to the learners. The lessons are lively and based on the latest scientific findings. As a third important factor, we pay attention to sympathy, because a friendly teacher plays a decisive role in your success. Teaching and learning should be fun. Our teachers see themselves not only as educators but also as cultural mediators. After the course, they often go out with the students and organize excursions and sightseeing tours. Often this leads to friendships for life.

Participation without risk

With us at the Sprachen Akademie, you have a money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with the teacher or the course after the first lesson, simply let us know and we will refund your money. Alternatively, you can book a free trial lesson and get to know the teacher before making a final decision. The satisfaction of our clients is very important to us.
