A rewarding experience

I highly recommend ELFI to anybody interested in taking a French immersion course in Geneva. You will find a very comfortable and friendly environment. The instructors and staff are very very capable indeed. The small size of the school makes it a relatively intimate experience and renders the administrative staff very accessible. The administrative staff are very helpful not just with the course but also with navigating through the Swiss administrative processes. The course material is very good and introduces students to themes and issues that are both very current and essential to French culture. Students are encouraged to speak and develop their conversational skills. Of course like with any other course you get what you put in. But all in all I really enjoyed my experience at ELFI and if I have another chance to study there again I will.

Intensive French course

My experience in taking the Intensive French Class in ELFI is excellent. The staffs are very accommodating and helpful. The teachers are all native French speakers, very friendly and eager to teach. The school is very well located in the Geneva city center, and close to train stations. I am a total beginner in French when I came to ELFI and I am happy that I've been able to pass my DELF B1.

I highly recommend this school.

Comprehensive program

I studied at ELFI from July 2015 until October 2016. I began at the A1 level and by the end of my time there, was able to attain a very good result for my DELF B2 exam. If you are wanting a school that offers a gradual and consistent progression in all four areas of learning a language: speaking, listening, reading and writing, then I recommend this school. I always felt looked after by my teachers and my experience with the administration staff was always very prompt, friendly and helpful. As is to be expected though, you will only the most out of this experience if you put in extra hours on your own time. I wouldn't have achieved the same result if I hadn't also been speaking and reading outside of the classroom.

From 0 to DELF B2 Diploma :)

I studied in ELFI for a year and a half. Honestly speaking, I didn’t know any French word that time. Back then, I had no exposure to French language. I went to school a week late, not even knowing how to introduce myself in French. It’s the professors who have helped me a lot. Because of them I had progressed and I didn’t even imagine myself speaking the language fluently like I do now.

The classes were intensive and the quality of teaching is excellent. The professors are organized and systematic in teaching the students considering that we came from all over the world and we speak different languages. During those times, I've met great people and gained friends. Through ELFI, I was exposed to French culture because we also celebrate the country's festivals inside the class and we celebrate it with the other students from the other classes.

I passed the DELF B2 because of ELFI. :)
I had the pleasure of learning French in this school. It was a great experience. :)

Goal accomplished!!

When I started @ ELFI I had B1 level in French not enough to have my diploma be recognized in Suisse.
As I am working I came 2x a week for few months and to prepare for the DELF B2 test I had intensive course for a month and violá I passed the exams!
Thanks to the staffs as they were very supportive and helpful.Now I have my certificate "droits de pratique"and happy of my new post @ work!
The fee is reasonable and worth it as it's an investment for life!
