Integration through the learning of practical French

InfoSuisse 50+

InfoSuisse 50+ is a HEKS/EPER project to enhance the social integration and self-reliance of asylum seekers 50 years and over, recently arrived in Switzerland. It comprises intensive French courses and a Café-Français – regular meetings for French conversation over tea or coffee – which connects participants with services potentially useful to them.

Intensive practical French

InfoSuisse 50+ offers 12-week, intensive French courses for asylum seekers aged 50 and over and recently arrived in Switzerland. Held on three half-days a week, the courses cover priority topics relevant to daily life in Switzerland such as health, housing and retirement, which are illustrated in practice through outings organized around specific topics. Outings also help participants get to know their local surroundings better. This immersion approach to language learning combats social isolation by expanding people's social networks. The Café-Français enables people to consolidate their knowledge of French by regularly practising the language in a convivial atmosphere.
