Who and where is The Boston School

The Boston School GmbH is an English language school which was founded by Boston native, Rose Nassif Travers, who moved to Switzerland in 1991.  Started in 2000, it has grown from offering lessons from her living room in Zurich to a group of experienced and talented part-time English teachers teaching in companies in both the German and French speaking parts of the country.

We are passionate about teaching business English as well as offering an insight into anglophone culture. Our clients are mostly small to mid-sized Swiss companies or subsidiaries of large international corporations who we serve at multiple locations.

From the company receptionist, back-office administration team, small business owner to the Vice-President in Private Banking or the multi-national company CEO, we have experience supporting all with their own particular English language learning need.

It is also why we can say we:

Learn from our students!

In exchange for explaining grammar rules, encouraging students to write e-mails, read books and practice English speaking skills in class – our teachers have the privilege of learning on the job.   

Whether it’s learning about surfactants or cGMP regulations for FDA quality standard compliance issues in the chemical industry, understanding what “blue ocean strategy” is through our MBA students, or even how call and put options function in the banking industry: learning takes place on both sides of the classroom at The Boston School.

Here are just a few of the industries our teachers have gained knowledge in:
