Where teachers meet and learn



Lausanne, the capital city of Vaud

ETAS Vaud region is now coordinated by 2 new volunteers: Sharon Acton and Sonia Spenlehauer.


Vaud currently has a membership of circa 50 members.  These members range from trainee to experienced teachers, teacher trainers and school owners from both the private and public sectors.  Vaud holds a minimum of two workshops a year and tries to cater to the broad range of interests that members hold such as teaching young learners, corporate and business English, coaching individuals for exams, etc. Suggestions are always welcome!
