HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Language» in Switzerland
Through its work in Switzerland, Swiss Church Aid (HEKS/EPER) fosters social inclusion for disadvantaged people, promotes equal opportunity and supports asylum seekers and other socially deprived people with legal advice.
HEKS/EPER operates five regional offices in German-speaking Switzerland and one in French-speaking Switzerland, which together manage over 50 projects in 13 cantons.
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.
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.
«HEKS/EPER InfoSchweiz» supports temporarily admitted persons and recognized refugees through a variety of social integration courses and information programmes.
