Switzerland dazzles the eyes with its beautiful alpine landscapes and pristine lakes. It is one of the most desired places to visit for people from around the world. Who are the people who live in this paradise and what makes them tick?

This class will go beyond the stereotypes of tidiness, neutrality, cheese and chocolate, wristwatches and trains running on time, to examine the unique language, the special dishes, the mindset and peculiar customs of this tiny yet influential country in the middle of Europe. Switzerland is indeed magical!

Don Clymer has broad international experience in both Latin America and Europe. He recently retired from teaching Spanish, German, Intercultural Communications and led numerous cross-cultural seminars for Eastern Mennonite University. Clymer is married to a Swiss citizen and has spent time visiting and working in her homeland, including a full year immediately upon retiring.
