Director and founder:

The Institute was founded in 1983 by Judit Varadi, a linguist, teacher and communications expert, educated at the Sorbonne and at the University of Geneva.


48 teachers with university education, trained in the Varadi method, teach their native language adapted to the specific needs of each student — adults, teenagers and children — and companies, organizations, banks and diplomatic corps. 

Numbers of students:

We have had the pleasure of counting among us more than 14’800 students since the creation of the Institute.


Located in the heart of Geneva, just steps away from the rue du Rhone, our school welcomes you in bright and spacious classrooms overlooking the mountains and the Jet d’eau.

Classes may also take place in your office.
