Our School

The language school Roth Language Atelier was founded by Helene Roth in Zurich Oerlikon  in 2011.  As a qualified language teacher it has always been important for her to teach languages in a communicative approach. Therefore the Roth Language Atelier only offers small group classes and private classes in a friendly, personal and welcoming environment.

Her MA in International Relations and her experience as a director of the French American Chamber of Commerce in Houston complement her capabilitiy to understand the needs of international course participants and companies.

Our Leitmotiv

Language can be trained – the Roth Language Atelier has highly qualified teachers who work effectively and closely with the students to achieve their goals. Our team has over 18 teachers who enjoy teaching their mother tongue. We speak the target language right from the beginning – and it works!

Our training program is developed according to our students needs. Language training is understanding and being understood. Both are important aspects of our language program. Small learning groups, a personal atmosphere and answering questions and wishes of our students are important to us.

Our courses are target driven and professional. Together with the student we find a way to achieve the defined goals.
