We are honoured to be asked to contribute and do so with pleasure.
Our family’s language learning journey has been supported by Soft Landing since our arrival in Switzerland 8 years ago. The team at Soft Landing helped, myself, husband and daughter go from little for no German experience to passing our Goethe B2 level exams. We have enjoyed private and group and holiday lessons and have learnt from an engaging and dedicated team of teachers.
I am not a ‘linguist’ and did not have a sound grasp of grammar even in my mother tongue.Harry’s love of language and his ability to summarise grammar learning into meaningful, bite size pieces helped me not only to understand the rules but also to speak with confidence and fluency.
We also particularly liked Soft Landing’s uniquely ‘local’ approach to learning. We learnt about customs, practicalities and places that were local and relevant to our lives in Zug.
Harry and his team have supported not only our German language acquisition, but also our daughter’s love of language with French lessons to complement her language learning in school, and help her achieve her ambition of gaining the DELF B2 in French.
I liked a lot the great flexibility of the softlanding staff to organize the lessons around the normal classes they take.

Through intensive training and self-study, the Softlanding team succeeded in raising my level and certifying me so that I can not only work here as a foreigner, but also actively participate in social life here in Switzerland. The professional but pleasant way of working proved to be very efficient and effective. I can only be very grateful for this incredible support I received from Softlanding.
They are super flexible and tailor the courses to your specific needs. There preparation and assistance makes the language exams totally manageable.
Their assistance with the Swiss Naturalization process simplifies and makes it stress free. An absolute must and very strongly recommended.

I am deeply grateful to Harry Fuchs for the knowledge that I was able to achieve and the overall confidence “I do know enough!”, that surely played the important role in the process.
Harry Fuchs at Soft Landing also guided me through the Swiss Naturalization journey. Harry was amazing and helped me to go through the process smoothly and loved the dedicated printed/digital material provided to me. I liked the way Harry teaches the basics of Swiss culture, specifics from the Gemeinde and Swiss Politics so that the details are useful not only for the Naturalization journey but also for daily life in Switzerland. He was very flexible with his schedule and conducted all the lessons remotely even during his holidays so that it fits my schedule. I highly recommend Harry for anyone who wants to have a hassle free Naturalization process in Switzerland.
His kind and easy-going approach to teaching helped my children to communicate well in German and helped with naturalisation in Switzerland.
I would be happy to recommend Softlanding school and it’s professional team to all the people coming to Switzerland and to those who want to learn German in a simple and interesting atmosphere.

Attending the preparation course is definitely a good investment and I always tell everyone about it.
Thank you again, we are proud Swiss.
I also find Soft Landing's learning material quite sufficient to reach the professional level of German.
I can definitely recommend Soft Landing to anyone who wants to learn German. Thank you Softlanding and Harry Fuchs!
The result: evidence of my progress, confidence in my abilities and enthusiasm for the future … auf Deutsch.
A big thank you to Harry and the SoftLanding team.
With this course I felt really confident, and passed the exam with very good results.
So huge thanks to my wonderful teachers, Manuela and Harry!

We started with private German lessons at Softlanding, then group lessons and special exam preparation course in order to acquire the Kombiprüfung for our C permits.
Along the way we also took part of fun free seminars like Introduction to Swiss German and Beauty of German Grammar, what an oxymoron this one😀
As time went by our boys grew older and also profitted from the offerings of Softlanding. Our eldest attended the Gymnasium preparation course when he was in 6th grade, 2nd seminar. Even nowadays, both our boys take private lessons from Yvonne which improved their German grade with at least 0.5 mark.
And at last, but not least, Harry successfully prepared us for the Citizenship interviews at both Gemeinde and cantonal level. We are waiting for the final approval from the Kantonsrat at this stage. Big thanks to Harry and Softlanding for being there for us in the big landmarks of our Swiss lives.
