Our School

The Chatterbox is a small, privately-run business in Nyon, Switzerland, that specialises in teaching English to children and adults. We offer a curriculum-based English language training that is both creative and personalised.

Our Approach

Our philosophy is that learning can and should be a fun and creative process but one that is guided by sound pedagogic principles.

We use the Oxford University Press Family and Friends and inSight curriculums for our regular schedule of classes during the school year.

Private and on-line lessons can also be tailored to suit individual needs.


Our students range in age from 4 years to adults for our English classes. Given our location in Nyon, in the heart of the Swiss Lake Geneva region, our students represent a diverse range of cultures and nationalities.  


Our staff consists of highly-qualified experienced teachers with university degrees in English, Art, Music, and other subjects. 


Join us for a sweet and exciting adventure as we dive into the world of Willy Wonka and his whimsical chocolate factory!

 Learn, craft and cook!
