LEARNING-POINT

Language school

Creative learning and cultural events

Our values

Our focus is on creativity and experience-oriented learning. Learning-Point is not only a language school. It is a place where it is possible to learn a language in a supportive environment through living culture and creativity. Either through cooking courses, conversation classes or cultural events.


Naturally the school can prepare you for examination certificates. It is important for us to support our students to reach their goals and ambitions. Through our learning environment we are able to meet our students wishes and demands with different learning methods. Learning-Point is an environment where language and culture come together through teacher to student, student to teacher and student to student. Dynamics are developed to achieve your goals.

Learning-Point was founded in 2016 and comes from the joint vision of Giorgia and Doris. Both of whom are highly-motivated language teachers. Two years later, in Autumn 2018 the team grew to three when Rhian Davies, an experienced English teacher, joined us.
With her experience Learning Point now has more to offer.

Doris DORIS BOLLI - German Teacher

Doris was born in 1961 in Switzerland. She first learnt and qualified as a Typographer.
Inspired by her many years in the USA, where she learnt English in a multi-cultural environment, she decided on returning to Switzerland to teach German as a foreign language.
She studied at the «Höheren Fachschule für Angewandt Linguistik (SAL)» in Zürich, undertaking several semesters in Adult didactic education and Linguistics. Doris gained the SVEB 1 Certificate as part of these studies.
During her 8 years at a language school she taught German to Telc and Goethe certificate level, as well as the traditions and culture of Switzerland.
As further creative development, Doris undertook 18 months professional training in floral design and domestic science. Her philosophy is to make lessons as interesting and creative as possible.

Giorgia GIORGIA PLATANIA - Italian Teacher

Giorgia was born in 1973 in Italy. On leaving High School, having focused on Classical Studies, she went to the University of "La Sapienza" in Rome to study Law, graduating with a Masters degree.
During a language trip to Australia she taught Italian. This experience as a language teacher motivated her, on returning to Rome, to continue teaching Italian as a foreign language. She took part in a course for L2 Teachers, undertaking an apprenticeship in Rome and obtaining the certification DITALS I (Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language) at the University for Foreigners of Siena.
Over some 15 years she worked for a wide range of educational institutes being involved with the planning and development of language training in different companies (Finmeccanica, Telecom Italia, Fendi, MTV and Camera dei Deputati).
These experiences led her to develop a didactic approach aimed at enhancing the potential of each individual student through the creative personalization of lessons. In 2013 she came to Schaffhausen with her husband and two children and started working at a language school in the center of the city, from here, a new chapter began, meeting Doris and developing the idea of “Learning-Point”.

Rhian RHIAN DAVIES - English Teacher

Rhian was born in 1962, in the United Kingdom. On leaving high school she completed a bachelors degree at London University in Social Sciences. On graduation she commenced nursing training and qualified in 1987 as a Registered General Nurse. She then worked in Cardiology, firstly at St. Mary’s Hospital, London, on a general cardiology ward and then at the National Heart Hospital, London, in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit. The hospital specialised in all aspects of cardiology, valve replacements, heart bypass and heart transplants. With this experience Rhian returned to St. Mary’s Hospital and held the position of Research Sister working for the Professor of Cardiology. Her responsibilities were monitoring patient responses to new cardiology medication, liaising with drug companies, recording data, co-ordinating between the cardiologists running the trials, patients and the different departments involved.
In 1998 she moved to Switzerland with her husband and three sons. Following her move she undertook teacher training in Zurich, obtaining CELTA, a qualification specialising in teaching English to adults as a foreign language. Since 2002 Rhian has been successfully preparing students for different levels of the Cambridge Certificates. She also offers general courses and book clubs, where participants enjoy a pleasant atmosphere and lively conversation whilst having the opportunity to increase vocabulary.
