At Soft Landing we offer a number of seminars and events which are not only related to language but also to the country where you now reside.

Things probably work differently here than in the country you came from. The political system is different, while the school system is flexible but not easy to understand, Swiss German sounds alien when you first hear it.

We’ve been regularly running seminars and workshops on different topics at our premises or in companies, associations and clubs.
