Welcome to The Boston School
The Boston School GmbH is a school which focuses on bringing affordable, quality English courses to Swiss SME’s and subsidiaries of international corporations throughout Switzerland. The school has steadily grown since 2000 thanks to its loyal clients and a network of experienced teachers located in the cantons of Zurich, Aarau, Geneva and Basel.
What makes us different?
LEAN THINKING PRACTICES We do not have the overheads of renting expensive office space. For our corporate clients, we teach on site. When there is a need to teach off-site, for example for non-corporate individual learners, we do so by using affordable hourly meeting room rentals now available in the Zurich market. Blended learning courses that combine face-to-face lessons with Skype or online lessons is also an option we currently offer. This means students welcome their teacher into their home or office one week and the following week, the course is delivered via Skype. Cloud technology is used to share documents easily between our teachers and administrators and such tools can also be used between students and teachers.
CREATIVE NEW SERVICES We are always looking for ways to provide new services to our clients. Whether it is through offering local monthly social events where students can talk over a meal or play mini-golf together. We encourage anyone from the community to join our events to meet new people in a relaxed atmosphere to practice their English. Both native speakers and non-native speakers alike are welcome.
FUTURE PLANS We are also building upon previous experience with student trips by establishing annual trips abroad. This year it is a trip to Dublin for a 3-night/4-day stay along with an English trainer and other learners. We are looking to add a special touch to a weekend trip away. Soon we will also be offering extended stays in the USA and other English speaking countries where we have contact with local teachers. In addition, there are new blended learning solutions in development which will be announced in the near future.
We welcome you to The Boston School and hope that you will find what you are looking for here to inspire and motivate you to choose us as your English language provider.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any question you may have.
