My children have gained the necessary skills to read and write at a level equivalent to that of their American educated friends and relatives. Although the lessons are only 90 minutes per week, the children progress at a pace that is astounding. Activities and projects that the children completed both inside and outside of the classroom are not only purposeful but interesting.

We have been very pleased with the progress both daughters have made. Choosing Links to Literacy has been one of the best investments we ever made!

Annelise also makes the extra effort to help students with their individual needs.  My daughter had difficulty with her handwriting and Annelise provided the extra support and encouragement to get her up to speed.  We couldn't recommend Annelise's class more!

We are delighted that we were able to benefit from Annelise's wonderful courses. Her enthusiasm, support and wonderful rapport with the children have been invaluable in ensuring that our son’s transition back to UK schooling has effectively been seamless.


We would urge anyone who intends to return to their home country, or who simply wishes to give their child a fantastic grounding in English reading and writing skills to enroll their child on one of Annelise's courses, there is no-one else like her in Zurich!

Phonics classes and private lessons

The skills and confidence our son gained with Annelise not only encouraged his English but also supported his ability to learn German more quickly. He is now an avid and confident reader in both English and German, much to our delight.


When I drop the boys off for any lesson at Links to Literacy I know that for the next 90 minutes they will be in a calm, focused, productive and fun learning environment.

Fun with Phonics, Reading & writing classes and Book Club

Thanks to Links to Literacy I found that my daughter’s phonic understanding, reading, spelling and writing skills were in line with her English peers, and in many cases ahead.

Annelise is a very dedicated and professional teacher who has a special relationship with the children she teaches. I can certainly recommend Links to Literacy.

Phonics classes as well as Reading & writing classes

Annelise has a fantastic ability to draw out the strengths of my son and help him to work on his weakness, she is truly is exceptional at what she does. My son has totally exceeded my expectations on this course and it has been one of the best decisions we have made for him.  I would totally recommend the course. Annelise is an exceptional teacher, interacts wonderfully with the children, and has the patience of a saint.
