Mandatory language learning requirements
Learning French, German or Italian is part of the integration process. In addition, you have to learn how Swiss people live and work. After this, you can take the official integration exam from the organization called “fide“ . Fide stands for «Français, Italiano, Deutsch in Switzerland», if you pass this exam, you are officially integrated.
The integration of migrants is an important political and social aim of the Swiss Confederation. A key role is attributed to communicating in a local language. With the mandate to develop a conceptual framework for the linguistic integration of migrants, the Federal Council, in 2007, started an initative what would become fide.
What is fide?
First and foremost it is the name of the Swiss programme for promoting linguistic integration. The aim of fide is to guarantee high-quality opportunities for development to immigrants who speak other languages than one of the Swiss national languages. Qualifying for the fide requirements gives proof of their linguistic competences. The didactic approach of fide is characterized by principles such as everyday relevance, action and needs-orientation.
