The School of French language in Lausanne - Switzerland in a few words :

When it opened in 1962, Institut Richelieu could already benefit the founderís forty year experience in the educational field. Since then, it has always been influenced by inspirational results of new research which significantly reformed the teaching of modern languages. 

Four general principles prevail in our instruction of French language:


  • Students are motivated in a relaxed but pleasantly stimulating atmosphere.
  • In order to facilitate the studentís rapid progress, a large choice of psychologically adapted incentives are used as to complement individual capacities.
  • Teaching aids with proven educational value such as record players, internet and video sets are judiciously used.
  • Professional teachers only instruct students and evaluate their progress.

These four principles applied to small classes (4 to 12 students) enable the School of French to provide students with the best chances of fast progress under close supervision. Moreover, our Schoolís close contacts with the "Centre International d'Etudes Pédagogiques" for DELF and DALF provide us with guidelines from their exceptional worldwide experience.
