Your advantages as a learner


Our teachers, all of whom teach in their native language, have the experience and studies required to help you make rapid progress in the language of your choice and prepare you to achieve your goals.

Moreover, their availability and dedication are unanimously recognized. The small size of the groups allows them to best meet the specific needs of each and to ensure regular follow-up for all.


An assessment test can be done without any commitment on your part to allow us to better guide you in your learning of English or French. You will be immediately integrated into a group corresponding to your level.


Thanks to its progressive, unique and efficient method, and thanks to a regular follow-up of each student, Lemania guarantees everyone a fast language learning. The emphasis is on a modern language, really spoken, which allows the learner to evolve with ease in a new linguistic framework.

In English, for example, students acquire the language skills necessary for the professional world. They will be able to speak with a client or colleague in English with ease, have a very good relationship at work, as well as success in business, whether on a construction site, in a shop, in a hotel, during meetings with foreign clients/suppliers, or during exchanges with a subsidiary in another language region.


Mastering a language is good. Being able to prove your skills on the job market is even better!

Students who wish to do so can take various recognized external exams in both French and English: DELF, DALF, preparatory course for the fide test, TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS and B2 First.

The diplomas or certificates obtained will open doors for your studies (UNIL, EPFL, hotel school) or your professional career.
