Ski Instructor Second Language Course

Ski Instructor Second Language Course

If you are looking to get your ski instructor second language test done, we are here to help. With our second language course!

After a decade of running professional development courses for ski instructors we understand how the second language module can become a frustrating obstacle. As well, we are very aware on how important being able to speak another language can boost a career.

We have been including language classes in our season long training courses for years, with great results. Now we have gathered our language team to deliver lessons online and face to face, to anyone!

Language skills are required for both the ISIA Stamp status as well as part of the new EU regulation of the ski instructor profession (CTT – Common Training Test, more info here).

Our Language Tutors

The teachers we use need to have minimum characteristics. Amongst others, they need to be perfectly fluent in the language, preferably mother tongue. They need to have prior experience in language teaching, with a passion for the job. As well, they need to be ski instructors. Fully aware of what the job requires, what the exact technical terms are and what are the needs of each participant.

Online Classes

All classes are one to one. Allowing the best results in the minimum time. We understand how the process needs to be efficient, so together with the teacher you will establish your goals. Once those are set, we’ll come up together with the best, most time efficient way to reach it.

Aware of the structure of the ski instructor second language exams, we have prepared many before towards this goal. The material we create is tailored towards this need, you are not alone in this quest!

Face to face Classes

During the winter the majority of our teachers are based in Zermatt. For anyone keen to attend face to face classes, they are available towards this.

During the summer period we are in different locations: Switzerland, UK, Italy for the most part.
