Training conceived for
Swiss companies

With suitable language training, employees and management staff are prepared for their respective tasks. This training could
involve the creation of a sound basis in the language, industry-specific language training, examination preparation, or simply the consolidation and expansion of existing skills.


Our offer for companies, organizations, groups, one-on-one

Group courses

Interactive training – Group dynamics

To achieve the best learning effect, we work with small groups. This ensures that the newly acquired language skills can be tried and tested immediately – interactively and within a clear context.

One-on-one training

One-on-one training enables you to structure your learning independently of other participants.

One-on-one lessons are particularly suited when:

  • – your latest promotion necessitates quick learning
  • – your schedule demands maximum flexibility
  • – you have very little time before an overseas posting
  • – you are an efficient learner or want to improve existing language skills.

Swiss German and German

as a foreign language

With Minnaar van Wyk Personalized Language Services your employees and their family members can learn German for their jobs and to advance their integration.

Job-related language advancement consists of intensive language training for workers at all skill levels. Whether a guard on a train or a manager, the content of our courses is carefully tuned to the needs of the individual or group.

These groups have been doing so for some time – and very successfully!

Construction site employees employees who want to refresh and improve their learning German basel

Aim of the course: That employees are able to follow the instructions of the architects and foremen on the building site more easily.



Foreign scientists and professors,
recruited by Swiss pharmaceutical companies, can usually conduct their professional activities in Switzerland without any need for German. Generally, they have an excellent command of the corporate language, English, but struggle in situations outside work where English is less widely spoken.

Aim of the course: German instruction to facilitate the integration of young academics into their social environment in Basel. This course is usually taught using at least one other foreign language.


Spouses of managers who have moved to Switzerland for professional reasons. Apart from teaching vocabulary and grammar, the role of this course in integration is very important. For a Japanese family, where do I find the best fish in the region? Where do I find the right doctor for an American spouse? These topics play a defining role in moulding the course.

Aim of the course: A social and cultural exchange which trains the hands-on, everyday German needed in the greater Basel area.
