Welcome to HSK English! We provide English language and literacy classes for native English-speaking children who attend Swiss school. Classes are run for children from age 4 and take place at various local schools across Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft. HSK English is a non-profit registered association (i.e. a Swiss "Verein") led by parent volunteers and is licensed by the Department of Education.

We invite you to explore our website and find out more about our teaching programme, teachers, schedules, job openings and more.

While the schools remain closed, it will not be possible to offer any HSK classes. As things currently stand, our intention is to resume the classes as soon as schools reopen and to run classes up to the end of the semester in order to catch up as much as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

Writers Tell All From Concept to Cover

The GGG Basel West Library invites the community to take part in three special evenings with local authors, as they tell their writing stories, talk about the inspiration behind their published work, the publishing process and answer your most pressing questions. The audience will have the chance to interact and ask the authors about their varied experiences.
