Head of the Regional Office:
Only those who understand a country's language will feel at home in it. Migrants in Switzerland who do not understand our national languages often have difficulty finding their bearings and becoming socially integrated. HEKS/EPER offers a wide range of language courses tailored to suit individual abilities and needs, for example, language courses for beginners, advanced learners, conversation courses, or mother-and-child language courses. These courses are available in the Cantons of Berne, Zürich, Thurgau, St. Gallen and Vaud.
«HEKS/EPER InfoSchweiz» supports temporarily admitted persons and recognized refugees through a variety of social integration courses and information programmes.
HEKS Integration Projects (HIP)
The HIP integration programmes offer individual language tuition to speakers of other languages in the canton of Bern.
Deutsch Intensiv – Français Intensif
«Deutsch intensive - Français Intensif» provides tailor-made language courses for recognized refugees in order to enhance their social and professional integration.
