Permis C / Swiss naturalisation

Permis C / Swiss naturalisation

Are you a resident of one of the 7 French-speaking cantons of Switzerland? If your goal is to live here on a long-term basis, you've probably realised that you'll have to apply for your Permis C or Swiss naturalisation in the near future. Here are a few issues you will unfortunately encounter...

  • All the information relating to your application is in French, which makes it quite challenging and rather confusing to begin.
  • If you do not have the right level of French yet, how can you avoid spending a fortune on lawyers, relocation agencies, and translators?
  • If you already have a good command of French, how can you avoid the frustration of wasting your precious time in this maze of information?

I decided to strengthen my French skills and got 5 classes of one-to-one coaching, before my Swiss FIDE exam. Aurore was my teacher. She was extremely attentive, listened to my needs, adjusted her style, and gave amazing tips & tricks for how to handle fide exams.

Thanks to outstanding Aurore's coaching, I was able to pass B1 level in both written and verbal communication, with very high scores! BIG THANKS to the full team, and highly recommended not only as a preparation for fide exams, but for overall improvement of French language skills.

I have tried other methods, but Prêt à Parler is the best! The programme and the material are engaging and the Super Profs are magnificent! Brice is absolutely brilliant! He has earned the title of being called a 'Super Prof'. He is knowledgeable, kind, charming, and patient and clearly, the student's stupidity does not phase him. He remains encouraging and supportive! I highly recommend improving your French online with Prêt à Parler. I passed A2 for Oral and B1 for Reading and Writing with the Exam Express Programme!


In just five Zoom sessions, Super Prof Yohann was able to efficiently assess my starting level and development areas and prepare me for the FIDE exam, which I took with confidence and passed on first try. Beyond FIDE exam prep, I would recommend Prêt à Parler to all expats in the Swiss Romande region as learning the local language will improve your quality of life and reduce the number of daily moments and insights "lost in translation".

I had a great experience with regards to preparing for the French Fide exam in Switzerland. I would especially like to thank Sandra, my professor! Her approach worked very well for me as she made sure I focus on learning by doing. She tailored the course material according to my needs. Sandra found a good balance between helping me improve my overall French language skills and preparing specifically for FIDE Exam. Thanks once again to Sandra and Prêt à Parler team!

To prepare for the FIDE exam, I decided to try out Prêt à Parler. BEST DECISION EVER! My super prof is Vincent and he helped me every step of the way. He is professional and incredibly patient, he really helped to make the process of learning and preparing fun and enjoyable. I can happily say that I achieved B1 for both the oral and written exam.  I enjoyed learning with Prêt à Parler so much that I decided to continue with super prof Vincent to further strengthen my French.
