VALUES AND COMMITMENT

ASC is committed to making every effort to facilitate the achievement of its learners' objectives by ensuring clear and detailed information throughout the learning process. We make every effort to ensure a quality service, presenting to all concerned, transparent management of the institution, and we operate in a spirit of openness, trust and collaboration.

ASC is also committed to ensuring respect for diversity and to working together in mutual respect, without discrimination on the basis of gender, religion, origin or age.

In order to improve our services, we adhere to the principle of regular external and independent inspection. ASC Languages was the first language school in French-speaking Switzerland to be awarded the Swiss EduQua quality certificate in 2001. Since then we have been successfully inspected every year.

Social and professional integration is at the heart of our activity, our programme and our place in Geneva.

“The pleasure of learning is closely linked to the pleasure of teaching. It is a reality that has been mine for 16 years at ASC, alongside a team of passionate teachers and students who are discovering or rediscovering the pleasure of learning as adults. And teaching a language also means guiding the learner towards self-confidence, interaction and autonomy. What a privilege! “
Et enseigner une langue, c’est aussi guider l’apprenant vers la confiance en lui, l’interaction, l’autonomie. Quel privilège ! »

Isabelle B. Director ASC Languages Geneva

A LANGUAGE CERTIFICATION CENTRE

ASC Languages' growth has been steady and sustained. At the heart of this growth has been our commitment to customer satisfaction. In order to improve our services, we have developed the offer of official certifications in order to prepare our students for the various language exams and assessment tests.

For companies: most exam sessions can be organised directly on your premises at the end of each course period.

Highly-qualified teachers supported by a committed team

ASC Languages' teachers are among the most qualified and respected in the profession. Their initial training and a regular programme of in-house in-service training enable them to deal with any situation and to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field. They teach their mother tongue and only that language is used in the classroom. We strive to recruit the best specialists by offering them excellent working conditions and remuneration, while giving them the opportunity to develop professionally. The retention of our teaching staff is one of our priorities and allows us to offer our clients continuity in their training.

The ASC group is made up of more than 200 teachers and 30 staff responsible for/in charge of management, pedagogy or administration. In order to master each step and parameter of the learning process and to ensure its success, the vast majority of the administrative and supervisory staff are qualified and experienced pedagogues, promoted from the ASC teaching staff.

Student satisfaction in 2020

"you don’t only learn the grammar but you also learn to communicate"

I had a great time at ASC Languages. First of all, thank you so much Laura and Dominique, for being so passionate and enthusiastic about teaching. I’m glad I had you as my teachers and I feel like my French skills have improved a lot. During class, you don’t only learn the grammar but you also learn to communicate. That was very useful! I liked that the class was small, because in that way you had to speak a lot.

This was difficult at first but also a very good exercises. Also, the location is good and easy to reach. After class, it was great to explore Geneva.

"Un cours pour mettre toutes les chances de mon côté sur le marché de l'emploi"

 

J’ai suivi ce cours d’allemand pour approfondir mes connaissances et pour mettre toutes les chances de mon côté sur le marché de l’emploi car l’allemand est très important en Suisse. J’ai atteint mes objectifs à 100%

" I'm now a lot more confident speaking to French speakers on a daily basis."

“Both Lauriane and Aurelie have been excellent teachers – really first class.
The way they cope with the lessons as well as the technical requirements of online learning is very impressive. I feel that I have learned a lot and I’m now a lot more confident speaking to French speakers on a daily basis.
It’s been a great experience.”
