Important information
The Swiss Association of Language Travel Agents (SALTA) was dissolved on 31 December 2016 and will now be run in the form of an interest group (IG). An association structure was no longer considered appropriate due to the high degree of professionalisation in today’s Swiss language travel market.

In addition, networking between members is very good and the regular dialogue will be sure to continue thanks to the new IG structure. All members will remain in the Swiss travel guarantee fund.

Questions regarding language travel can be sent directly to the agencies listed.

WHO?

For all age groups – business or pleasure

Long-standing popularity: Young adults invest in language training

More than two thirds of language travellers are 17 to 27 years old. However, language study abroad travel is possible starting at age 7, and customers over 30 are also on the rise with special courses. Language travel offers younger participants a safe environment where they can quickly make friends and enjoy being on their own.

 

Thirty is the new twenty

The course demand is constantly growing for those over 30, as well as for business courses for professionals and companies. Along with this demographic, the reason for this is the globalisation of the working world. Therefore, Swiss language trip organisers are offering more and more tailor-made programmes for these target groups.

 

Even among Swiss over 50, language study abroad trips are a growing trend. Packages are popular for this age group, where adventure and gourmet holidays can be combined with a language course.
