André Oberholzer has been teaching languages since 1989, offering a comprehensive range of options through a variety of language courses. The Mastertalk language school specialises in foreign language lessons for the employees of international companies within the Zurich area.

Flexible

I mainly offer one-to-one lessons for private individuals and the staff of international businesses in Switzerland. This increases my flexibility with regard to both content and timing. I work around the participants and their teaching needs. I believe in the importance of an enjoyable educational atmosphere, as this makes it easier to learn and process both the language and the cultural content.


Professional

As both General Manager and teacher, I can guarantee the high quality of your lessons. I have enjoyed a successful career as a language teacher since 1989, using the latest teaching materials for my classes. I can also prepare you to attain internationally-recognised qualifications.


Individual

The four main elements of speaking, reading, listening and writing will be weighted differently, depending on the aims of your course. However, I regard conversation as the cornerstone of a language, since it combines speaking, choice of words and an understanding of grammar.
The individually-designed teaching programme allows me to delve into my students’ different character traits and learning methods, and to pick them up at the point where they currently stand. My task is then to guide them to their learning goal.


Personal

I can help make sense of day to day life in Switzerland and provide you with support during your integration stage. It is to your advantage that I see myself as an agent for the provision of both language and quality of life.
