Notes on this episode of Swiss and Chips: Your British Guide to Switzerland
A trip to see the light projection at the Swiss Federal Palace, the Rendez-vous Bundesplatz, brings up the question as to how much the Swiss are expected to use Swiss languages other than their own in their daily life.
We answer listener questions:
- when are high German and Swiss German used? This question came from Heather, in our Facebook group.
- is it possible to get a working holiday visa as a Canadian? This question came from Ted, who sent us a voice message from our homepage.
And we talk about our meet-up with our Facebook group, Switzerland for English Speakers!
