About Us

The FOXCHOOL Language Institute was founded in 2009 in the city of Mülheim an der Ruhr. Our main goal is to support our students in ultimately becoming fully bilingual in German and English. Thus, both expatriates taking their first steps in mastering the German language and German managers who have their power point presentations in English corrected and optimised by us, belong to our group of trusted clients.

As the FOXCHOOL Language Institute is a certified training institution, all clients receive a certificate at the end of their course to confirm the standard reached.

You will find more information on a wide range of topics on our blog. Feel free to browse.

We invite you to contact us for a first consultation, which is without any obligations. To arrange a first meeting, please use our contact form or simply pick up the phone. You are also welcome to visit our school during our office hours. Should you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to let us know.

We look forward to hearing from you!
