Great place to learn French

ELFI is one of the best places in the area to learn French. I followed French courses at ELFI for about 6 months and I am extremely satisfied with the results. When I started I had some very basic grammar knowledge and was not able speak French at all. Now I can make a proper conversation in French without feeling shy or intimidated. Each class has fewer than 15 students and therefore there is a personal relationship between the teachers and the students. The management is very attentive, flexible and always tries to help. I would recommend ELFI to any new student that wants to learn French efficiently, in a nice and friendly environment.

I strongly recommend ELFI!

I took French classes with ELFI from April until June 2017 as part of my preparation for the DELF level B2. I passed the exam with a satisfactory mark and was very happy overall. ELFI is a small school so you get to know the professors pretty well. Also the administrators are friendly and promote a relaxed atmosphere. They offer 3 hour courses, with AM (9 to 12) or PM (2.15 to 5.15) sessions. It is the best value and you get the most out of your money/investment. No textbooks required in advanced classes, although they rely on Alter Ego+ series for the most part, and photocopies of any exercises are provided daily. I would strongly recommend ELFI for anyone looking to learn French in Geneva.

Learning at ELFI was a great experience for me

ELFI is a great place to learn French. The classes are small (approx 15 students per class) and the teachers are really skilled and dedicated. This means that the teachers really get to know the students and understand their personal goals, abilities and progression in learning. The pace of learning is quicker than many other schools but that means that your French communication skills develop faster than most. You will need to review lessons at home, though, as there will be plenty of content coming your way every day. The city of Geneva is vibrant, really international but also quite expensive. One of the hidden benefits of going to a school like ELFI is being able to share tips on how to make the most of your time in Switzerland with other students. The admin is friendly and supportive and offered me plenty of help and advice regarding visas, insurance and other useful bits of information to help me settle. They are also open to discuss any issues that might affect your learning progression. My overall experience at ELFI was great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn French in Switzerland.
