Zurich Comedy Club (ZCC)

The Zurich Comedy Club (ZCC) has earned the title 'Home of English-speaking theatre in Zurich since 1954'. We have performed some 140 plays in English since then - from comedies to Shakespeare. The ZCC is among the leading English-speaking drama groups in Switzerland. The Zurich Comedy Club is a group of English-speakers, though by no means exclusively native English-speakers, from around the world and around Switzerland, who meet most weeks to read, discuss, practise and perform theatre plays - both dramas and comedies. At least twice a year we stage a major production for the public when we often attract audiences in excess of 400 people at each performance. The only pre-requisites for membership are that you must speak and understand English and, for speaking parts in readings and on stage, you should have clear English diction without a strong accent, so you are easily understood.


English Speaking Club of Zurich (ESCZ)

The English Speaking Club of Zurich (ESCZ) was founded in 1963 by a small group of people whose only desire was to speak English with one another. With time those few individuals grew to form the organization existing today of about 80 persons of all ages and nationalities. In addition to speaking English, the interest of the group expanded to learning about the Zurich area, meeting people of varied cultures and attending interesting and fun activities. If you think you would like to join the English Speaking Club of Zurich feel free to visit our first 3 events - no strings attached. You need not become a member or commit to any further visits until you are completely sure that ESCZ is for you.


New Zealand Association of Switzerland

The New Zealand Association of Switzerland aims to bring together New Zealanders living in all parts of Switzerland. We provide information of interest to New Zealanders through the club newsletter and this website. Social activities such as hiking and skiing weekends, bowling, picnics and pot luck dinners are organised by the committee on a regular basis. There’s a Christmas party and of course an Annual General Meeting once a year. We also seek to help newcomers with contact and information about living in Switzerland. To be eligible to join the club you must either hold a New Zealand passport, be related to a New Zealander, or be able to demonstrate that you have very strong ties to New Zealand.

English Speaking Club of Bern

The English Speaking Club of Bern was founded in 1978 as a meeting point for English speakers from all over the world. Members are a mixture of native (UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand South Africa etc.) and non-native speakers of English from all over the world, who want to speak or practice English. There are lots of Swiss nationals and many Germans, Dutch, Scandanavians and non-europeans among our members and guests. Many people who turn up to the English Speaking Club are Swiss with roots in, or a special interest, or personal relationship with an English speaking country, many are also foreigners working in Switzerland – sometimes for many years.
