About Adapte-se

Adapte-se offers online and face-to-face courses for Brazilians or people of any nationality living in Switzerland. Intercultural communication training teaches how to deal with diversity at work and develops cross-cultural sensitivity. The ability in "cultural sensitivity" can be trained and developed allowing citizens to be able to coexist in an easier way with the different ones. It is key to our world today, where people travel, live and work abroad, and the number of bi national marriages grow. Intercultural training is precisely the learning of this capacity.
