ASC International House Language School

Introduction

ASC International House (IH) was founded in Geneva in 1974. We are affiliated with the International House World Organisation, a network of 155 language schools in over 53 countries, dedicated to offering high quality education and customer service.

As well as providing language training to the general public and to many of the region's leading companies and organisations, ASC International House is heavily involved in educating children throughout Switzerland and in neighbouring France.

ASC IH is an enterprise made up of over 200 education professionals helping students achieve their goals. We were the first school of languages in French-speaking Switzerland to be awarded the Swiss EduQua certificate of quality in 2001 (renewed in 2013).

Corporate clients

With 40 years of specialist experience in corporate language training, ASC International House offers tailor-made courses to a long list of demanding clients.

Courses are only created once an in-depth language audit and detailed needs analysis have been carried out. This audit, conducted free of charge and without engagement, allows us to personalise a training plan for every client. Our dedicated, bilingual Client Managers are always available to answer any administrative or pedagogical query.

General public

Since 1974, ASC IH has been offering high quality language courses taught by qualified professional teachers, thus earning a solid reputation for pioneering and progressive teaching methods.

Today, a wide range of group and one-to-one courses is taught in a range of languages including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Arabic and Japanese.

A well-equipped multimedia centre supervised by a permanent member of the teaching staff is open to all private and corporate students, free of charge. Preparation for official language examinations is also offered.

Young learners

ASC International House is heavily involved in educating children through English-language and bilingual schools from Primary through to pre-university programmes. In addition, we offer extra-curricular tuition and support, and holiday camps with real educational value.

Our international schools are located between Geneva and Vevey / Montreux as are our holiday camps. Our language training centres are situated throughout this region with an additional site in the Pays de Gex (France). Private tuition, revision courses and education consultancy are available to students of all ages and their parents throughout Switzerland.
