Invitation to the press conference livestream
Language survey 2019: first results
What percentage of the population regularly uses several languages? How has use of the national languages in Switzerland changed in recent years? What is the situation of non-national languages? Which population groups speak several languages? Which languages are learned in Switzerland and why?
The Federal Statistical Office (FSO) will answer these questions at the press conference, which will be streamed live online. It will also be an opportunity to draw attention to the particularly Swiss aspects of multilingualism, thanks to the first findings from the FSO's language, religion and culture survey (website).
