About us

Individual language courses for private and corporate customers

Our school

LPZ language pool is an individual language school that is oriented towards your requirements. We mainly teach internally within companies, though we also run courses at our own premises at Austrasse 38 in Zurich. We would also be happy to travel to your home, or wherever is most convenient for you.

As a small and personal language school, we value our business partners and are here to help them. We enjoy long-term customer loyalty, which is reflected in a collaboration that is based upon mutual trust.

The untiring, goal-directed efforts of our teaching staff guide our students confidently towards their goal. Apart from the achievement of individually-set goals, pleasure in language and interpersonal communication are also important to us. People's horizons are expanded and whole new worlds are opened up to them.
"Language is the place where we meet"

Heidi - LPZLPZ language pool was set up in 1993 by Hedi Killeen and was entered into the commercial register as a sole enterprise in 1996. Hedi Killeen, a qualified language teacher and qualified translator, is responsible for directing the school.

All the teachers employed by LPZ language pool are trained and experienced teachers; they possess language diplomas or university qualifications plus several years of teaching experience.
