"As someone in an executive leadership position, I value Hedi’s flexibility enormously. She is not only willing to accommodate my demanding schedule but also tailors her teaching program to my individual needs. In addition, she provides valuable insight into the Swiss business culture and cross-cultural issues."
Prof. Dr. Janet Hering, Director Eawag, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science & Technology
"I came to Switzerland with absolutely no knowledge of German whatsoever. Hedi has been inspirational and after 18 months I'm in the position of being able to understand, read, and speak German to a level where two-way communication is a reality. Moreover she has made it a very enjoyable experience throughout this period. I would highly recommend her!"

"Here at Bayer (Schweiz) AG, we have been working with the LPZ language pool language school for our in-house language courses for some years now. Our work with LPZ language pool is characterised by competence, flexibility and success. Whether they attend tailor-made programmes or certification courses, our employees benefit from experienced teachers and efficient training".
Sandra Bucher, Bayer (Schweiz) AG, HR Business Consultant
"LPZ language pool offers a superb, tailor-made approach to learning a language. I wanted to learn German, at least to a conversational level, in order that I could be more integrated into the Swiss society rather than always relying on my girlfriend, work colleagues and friends. Being of 'mature' years, the thought of trying to learn a new language was rather frightening, but LPZ language pool have provided me the means to do this at my own pace, with excellent teaching techniques and materials, in a very personalised and friendly style. The hidden bonus being that I am also learning more and more about the historical and cultural background of Switzerland and Germany. They make it interesting, fun, and relaxing. I would absolutely recommend LPZ language pool for anyone wishing to take up the challenge of learning a new language."
Rob Moody, Process and Operations Manager, IBM Switzerland
"I attended two special courses, the "German writing course" and "Verbal expression", at LPZ language pool, in order to improve my German in the professional sphere. The programmes suited my requirements completely: writing a CV, job applications, short messages, invitations, discussions and presentations, etc. The teacher, Evelyne Heiderich, was extremely competent and helpful, providing us with a great deal of useful teaching materials, which I consult frequently to find the right expressions and formulations. The courses are economical and the effort has been completely worthwhile. I can now write my own letters and e-mails without any difficulty, and I can even present fairly short lectures in German!"
Dr. Yarosalv Romanyuk, Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology Dübendorf
"When I arrived in Switzerland, I attended LPZ language pool to learn German as a beginner. After 2 years, I can now take part in the "Writing course" and the "Verbal expression in the professional arena" course at level B2+. I am very satisfied, as the lessons with LPZ language pool have enabled me to develop further in both my social and my professional life."
