German courses in Zurich

My wife is moving to Zurich and I am looking to get her in intensive German classes. I have seen all of the major language schools that most people have posted but I am looking for something a little different.

While I was in another country learning their language I went to one of the local universities and spent 2 semesters learning the language. I went to class in the mornings five days a week and each semester lasted for approximately 3 months. I am looking for something along these lines? Does anyone know of anything like that?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Re: German courses in Zurich

I am afraid there are not so many universities offering that here.

ETH and UZH have their own faculty and language center but they require you to be either a student or working for them(spouse of the staff are also accepted I guess).

I've been taking a course offered from ZHAW. Though it's nothing different than those language schools.

Contact the Benedict School. Fawzi Khalil, my Arabic teacher, learnt his German there and it was and is absolutely excellent. Fawzi is a good chap but hardly a genius, so that they must be good !
