The center provides language support to Bachelor’s, Master’s and exchange students at UZH and ETH as well as PhD candidates and university staff and alumni. Language support is also available to staff and students of the Zurich University of Teacher Education (PHZH) and Zurich University of the Arts Zurich (ZHdK).

Self-Study, Coaching, Learning Support, Tandem Learning

In addition to offering courses in 15 languages, the Language Center provides learners with individual coaching sessions and other services. Learners can also take advantage of the center’s autonomous learning services, tandem partnerships and language consultations.

Promoting Internationalization, Expanding Networks

By attending a language course, you can give your studies a more international outlook and improve your student exchange prospects. Your language skills will also come in handy later in your academic or professional career, no matter your subject area. Attending language courses enhances your individual learning experience and promotes language learning throughout your life. But it is also a social experience that gives students a chance to learn with and from each other. The Language Center understands language learning as learning about cultures and cultural aspects. This is why courses specifically include intercultural learning opportunities.
