My name is Christine Carl and I have been teaching French as a foreign language since 1989. In the summer of 2015 I founded The Swiss Touch School.

Being Swiss, and having lived in Switzerland my whole life, I am able to draw on my life experience and local knowledge to give you a valuable insight into Swiss culture and habits. My aim is to help you get more out of your time in Switzerland – whether you’re here as a tourist, student or resident - so you can enjoy this beautiful country as you grow in confidence in your French.

I am passionate about teaching and strive to make my lessons interesting, relevant to your needs and fun – because learning should be a pleasure.

My clients include UEFA, Novartis, FISU and private clients. References can be provided upon request.

Founder and Teacher

"Starting a new life in Switzerland was a daunting prospect, but Christine has given us invaluable support. With her help I can now deal confidently with everything from repair men to parents' evenings, and I'm proud to have just read my first novel in French - something I never thought I would be able to achieve."

About

"My work life is hectic and I travel a lot, so I really appreciate the flexibility that The Swiss Touch can offer. I have lessons both at my office during my lunch hour or at home before I go to work - whatever bests suits my schedule." Kevin

"I very much enjoyed Christine's small group classes. She will let you guide the subject matter, and is very happy to cover topics that are essential to day to day living in a french speaking environment. There is a nice variety of spoken, written and grammar work and many laughs shared throughout." Liz

"Christine est très sympa et empathique. Elle varie ses leçons selon le goût et les besoins des élèves. On n'a jamais l'impression que les leçons avec elle sont des obligations, mais c'est comme passer un temps agréable avec une amie... Une plaisir!  Christine est aussi très flexible et s'adapte aux horaires d'élèves. Elle sort de l'ordinaire et accepte de partir en balade pour les cours dehors. Comme elle vient de la région, elle peut donner des idées pour les excursions. Je suis très chanceuse que je l'ai rencontré!"  Jasmin

"Danke für alles! Ich kann jetzt viel besser sprechen! Vous avez beaucoup de la patience!

J'ai beaucoup de joie avec vos cours! Ivan
