Glion English Program

Glion offers an English language program where students are immersed in an English speaking environment and have the opportunity to discover the world of hospitality in Switzerland - the birthplace of hospitality, or in London - the European capital of business and tourism.

 

This program focuses on intensive English learning while also teaching students important hospitality industry terminology and knowledge. Our experienced teachers know that each student has different strengths and areas of development; they will help them to improve their English grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, pronunciation, reading and writing. This program is tailored to help students fulfill the entry requirements to study the undergraduate or postgraduate programs at Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland or London.
