Who we are

Christina Cornes – 15 years experience in student placement.



Thank you so much for everything, Christina! As a Swiss-Germand student, it would have been terribly difficult for me to find a hostfamiliy so close to my high-school …. The semester I spent in Lausanne was a great enrichment and not just in terms of language.  I would do it again without any hesitation!
