About Us

English is our business. A few words about us…

We are a small company (Sàrl) based in Geneva, Switzerland. We began in 2003. We specialise in English language training both in Geneva and in English-speaking countries around the world.

English and travel is our cup of tea

We love the English language and travel. It’s an intoxicating mix that can be life-changing in the best possible way. New adventures, new cultures, new opportunities and new friends. It’s much more than just learning a language. It’s an experience that stays with you for life. We love to accompany our students on this voyage.

We listen to you

Our service is personalised. It is tailor-made, as much as we can. We will listen to your aims and ambitions and then advise you accordingly. We invest our time in your project. We wouldn’t do it any other way. This is our professional pleasure and satisfaction. We are not a language travel factory. Why? Because we want you to get the maximum out of this experience. We like building relationships. And we want you to come back to us and bring your friends, daughters and sons and brothers and sisters.

Speak with our director

The Language House was founded Garry Littman, Australian, an experienced English language trainer and writer/journalist. Garry manages the day to day business of The Language House in Geneva. He personally meets with each client and invests his knowledge and expertise in their projects.

International network

The Language House has an extraordinary international network of schools and training centres around the world. We have been working with most of our schools, many of them award-winning and recognised industry leaders, for more than 10 years. We know the people in our schools – the owners, the registrars and the people in charge of accommodation. And they know us and our students. We are constantly in contact. We visit our schools regularly and attend workshops and language conferences such as the International Association of Language Centres (IALC) each year.

We are here to help you

We can help you in all aspects of your language training. Are you looking for a vegetarian homestay family? Do you want to do the CAE, but you are not sure about your English level and exam dates? Do you want to know where you can study and learn to surf? Do you want to work as a demi–pair. The Language House can answer any questions about English language training. We are happy to share our knowledge.
