FRENCH FOR SWISS CITIZENSHIP

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A SWISS CITIZEN?

SWISS FLAG BEHIND A BLUE SKYUnder the 2018 changes, there is a required minimum level of language proficiency. Candidates must demonstrate A2 level writing ability (elementary) and B1 (intermediate) spoken skills under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Cantons are free to set a higher bar if they wish. Note that you are exempt from having to prove your language competency if your native language is one of the Swiss national languages, or if you have done five years of compulsory schooling in Switzerland or if you have a secondary school leaving certificate or tertiary qualification completed in a Swiss national language. Naturalisation procedures vary considerably from one commune or canton to another. Please check the procedure and requirements for your commune and canton or check the official website of the Swiss Government. I will do my best to help you and provide you with accurate information but please bear in mind I am not a legal expert.  

However, I am fully qualified to help you with French and make sure you are ready for your interview and/ or test. To discuss your needs or the course content, please contact me.
