In the year 1928, Dr. Gaston Bénédict, a Swiss linguist and former professor at the University of Southern California, founded the first Bénédict School in Lausanne.

The language courses following the FREE-SYSTEM are particularly suitable for students who prefer to determine their training schedule, speed, extent and intensity themselves, according to their personal capabilities and time restraints. The FREE-SYSTEM consists of an ideal combination of the following four learning tools:

• One-to-one tuition: In this particularly intensive method, you work on and consolidate your vocabulary, grammar and the idiomatic usage of the language together with a native teacher. We especially emphasize that in this one-to-one tuition you may suggest your own key subjects.

• Language centre: In this facility, you can learn individually under the supervision of a teacher who is present at all times, who supports you and offers assistance. Owing to the uninterrupted opening hours of 09:00 – 20:00h (Friday until 17:30h and Saturday from 09:00 – 12:00h) you can decide when you want to learn and can thus profit from an unrestricted time and course schedule.

• Conversation: In small conversation groups you have the possibility to apply your oral knowledge actively and practice free speech (acting, reacting and reflecting) under the supervision of a native teacher.

• E-learning: This tool provides the opportunity to practice independent of time and place. It is particularly suitable if you have to bridge unproductive moments while travelling. The only requirement is an internet connection. We will give you access to this tool for a year, worth CHF 380.-, free of charge, if the contract value is over CHF 1000.-

As your cooperation partner for further education, we offer you a discount of 10% on the language course fees, as well as on all other training offers.
