Getting to the Ecumenical Center in Geneva

Hi
Please help a woman with a chemo-fried brain.

Coming from Bern tomorrow, I'm trying to get from a train station in Geneva - either Cornavin or Airport to the Ecumenical Center at 150 rte de Ferney 1211 Genève. I'm trying to figure out what the best thing to do is, to take a bus, or take a taxi. I'm really very unfamiliar with the area and I've pulled up instructions online, but I'm still not sure.... if anyone's done this before (and I'm sure someone has), please tell me what you'd do.

I'm inclined to just take a taxi - will taxi drivers speak a little English? I'm embarassed that my French totally sucks, but it does.

Thanks!

e.

Here you go.

Or from the airport.
First option seems better.
