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.

WHAT?

Something for everyone

Over the past decade, the range of courses has increased considerably. Today offers such as youth or business courses are in high demand. Thanks to internships abroad and Work & Study programmes, young people can gain professional experience or make a meaningful contribution through volunteering. Cambridge diplomas are now especially important for many employers as proof of performance. The combination of language study with other activities is ideal for those who want to use their holiday to improve their language skills.
