  • The CEEB Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

Studying in an international environment

At Monte Rosa, our students discover or improve their English thanks to our various courses, especially designed and organized according to their level. At Monte Rosa, the common language is English, in order to provide better communication between everybody.

Languages: an added value

Foreign languages are a crucial part for preparing a diploma that is why our school gives a high importance to this aspect by offering an international environment to the pupils studying here. While learning a language, students also discover cultures, ethnic groups and points of view.
