Great year at ELFI

I took a year of intensive classes at ELFI and finished with a DELF B2 certificate in French. I loved the teachers and the pedagogy but the best thing about the school was the ambiance. I made great friends that really helped ease the integration into Geneva. Highly recommend this school to any adult learners who are looking for day classes and lots of interaction with others. They are fairly flexible too and accommodate any hiatuses due to travel etc.

Overall a great experience

I studied there for 6 months. The teachers are professional and warm, the small class exercises are well organised. I had a great time there and have recommended it to people that I know who would like to seriously learn / improve their French.

Perfect

After studying 3 years in Geneva, I decided to pursue the DELF B2 exam by enrolling in this school. I started in January 2018 and took the exam in March 2018. I love the way they prepare us for the exams as we could choose what we wanted to focus on. The teachers are nice and helpful which means that learning and interacting is not a big issue.

One of the activities that happens frquently though, is when the teachers will ask you to voice out your opinions and thoughts about a certain topic. It is fun and helps a lot to those having trouble speaking French.

I do recommend this to people looking to prepare for the DELF B2 exam as the exam can be a real mess without enough practice.

Highly recommended

I joined the ELFI family in September 2016 without any knowledge in the French language. I have since drastically progressed and have accomplished my goals of reaching the DELF B2 level in French and have successfully passed the exam. ELFI offers an experience like no other and I can happily say I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The staff members are extremely welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend this school to anyone of any level in French. I guarantee you will have no regrets! :)

Nothing but great memories!

The most wonderful teachers and administrators you can ask for. From walking your through visa requirements to keeping you informed about all the cultural events happening in the city, ELFI, places the student experience a #1 priority.

The teachers are super knowledgeable and friendly. Incorporating many different learning techniques to ensure every student can benefit from their natural way of learning. What I really appreciated is that you will rotate through teachers every couple weeks so to benefit from different teaching styles as well as regional accents.

The classroom sizes are between 8 - 10 students making it dynamic, but also intimate. The classrooms themselves are clean and well furnished.

Be prepared to be offered lots of tea during breaks and to have to play a game of hide and seek with the owners' adorable daughter.

In all I highly recommend ELFI for their teaching style, the friendly environment and the endless laughs I shared with new friends.
