What? - I have to Speak Swiss German

With about 70% of the population speaking a form of Schwiizerdütsch in Switzerland, it only seems logical to try to learn and speak some form of this language. Or at least understand what people are talking about when they say something like "Merci" for thankyou and "velo" the French equivalent for bike instead of Farrhad.

Check out the full review from Swiss Info on the new book - "Hoi – your Swiss German survival guide". The books gives you an English speakers perspective of what you might be confronted with while you are visiting or living in Switzerland. Check out to buy this entertaining book.
