Study French in the Home of Your Own Private Teacher in the Geneva Region

Geneva, nicknamed the "Peace Capital", is a small but incredibly beautiful and influential city located in Romandie, a French-speaking region in Switzerland. This enchanting metropolis is internationally known for being a financial hub and a centre for diplomacy.

It’s home to the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization, the International Federation of Red Cross, and many more humanitarian institutions, including the European United Nations headquarters, located in the Palais de Nations. The Palais de Nations is a particularly spectacular structure situated within Ariana Park.

It was donated to the city by Gustave de Revilliod on the conditions that it would always be accessible to the public, that he would be buried there, and that there would always be roaming peacocks. The city has kept all three promises, making this one of the city’s must-visit landmarks.

This cosmopolitan city has plenty of amazing sites and activities to choose from. You’ll surely enjoy exploring Geneva’s Old Town, which includes the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre and the pretty pedestrian Place du Bourg-de-Four. Here you’ll find beautiful shops alongside numerous restaurants and cafés, where you can enjoy Swiss specialties like chocolate and fondue. Geneva has also become famous for its incredible cocktails!

Another wonderful thing about living in Geneva is that it’s so close to the Alps! In the winter you can go downhill skiing (of course), snowshoeing, sledging, cross-country skiing, or ice skating. There are also plenty of summer activities, including hiking, paragliding, summer tobogganing, and mountain biking.

The Live & Learn program offers you a unique and truly immersive way to experience this influential city. Your host family will be able to recommend particular places of interest as they get to know you personally through your private, professional French lessons. You’ll also learn much more quickly and effectively in a place where you can consistently apply your language skills as you learn them.
