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.

Find the right level

Am I a beginner or advanced?

The language levels are divided according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) of the Council of Europe:

The most requested language diplomas in Switzerland

 

Sound language skills make a good impression on your CV: The top ranking diplomas in Switzerland are for English, followed by French. Most commonly booked are the Swiss preparatory courses for Cambridge language diplomas. The higher levels (Advanced, Proficiency) are becoming increasingly important, since Swiss students complete an intermediate level diploma course at secondary school.

 

Also appealing are French diplomas such as DELF (diplôme d'études en langue française) and DALF (diplôme approfondi de langue française). In Switzerland, German diplomas have also become increasingly important.

 

Reach your language goals faster by studying abroad

Preparation for a diploma is significantly quicker with a language study trip. In Switzerland, courses take at least half a year or more, while a diploma course abroad takes just eight to twelve weeks.
