Advanced exam preparation

I came to Geneva to study for the DELF B2 exam. ELFI is very conveniently situated by the main train station. The atmosphere is lovely, very friendly and supportive. My teachers were excellent and provided both a high standard of formal instruction and lots of friendly conversation about events in the local area. The administration was highly efficient and extremely helpful - they were even able to advise me on enrolling for the actual exam. I very much enjoyed studying here and would definitely recommend it.

Studying French at ELFI

I studied at ELFI from August 2016 to March 2017. I really enjoyed my time at the school and feel that my French improved quite a lot as a result of the course. I found the administration to be very clear and direct. The teachers were wonderful and extremely helpful.

Great place to learn! Best cost-benefit in Geneva!

Overall, I think ELFI offers by far the best cost-benefit relationship in Geneva. It's not as expensive as other places and, in many cases, the teaching quality surpasses that of more expensive schools.

I think the teachers are the highlight of ELFI. They are dedicated, professional and very organized. They are able to move you forward if you put some effort. In my case, I came without speaking a word of French. My teachers never spoke a word of English or other language I know, and I was still able to advance. Thanks to that support, I was able to get to B2 level in 11 months.

While sometimes it was a bit difficult to agree on schedules and administrative stuff, overall, they were receptive to my goals and thanks to that, I was able to pass move forward.

I absolutely recommend ELFI if your goal is to learn the language and you are willing to put the effort.

If you want to improve your French, I strongly recommend to take a intensive course at ELFI!

My experience in Geneva was better than I could have ever imagined.
I had the pleasure to study in an amazing school with the best location in Geneva.
Inside is a bit tiny, but you can find everything that you need.
Excellent teacher and staff. Always care about you and will help with any problem you have. I liked the method of teaching.
The school's approach is entirely different to some others that I am used to finding. I started my French from scratches and them I learned grammar, conjugation of verbs, practiced new vocabulary and became fluent in French and our teachers, made all of it easy and fun!
