The Swiss federation is composed of 23 cantons. About 65% of the Swiss population speak Swiss German and it is spoken in 11 out of the 23 cantons. Pimsleur's Swiss German uses speakers with urban intonation and pronunciation spoken in cities such as St. Gallen, ZŸrich, and Basel.

Swiss German Phase 1, Units 1-10 provide an introduction to Swiss German with 10 thirty-minute lessons. With this product you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, then progressing to speaking and understanding at a functional level. Every lesson contains an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced.  Emphasis on pronunciation and comprehension.  At the completion of this course, you’ll have a basic vocabulary and speak with a near-native accent. This course provides you with a solid foundation upon which to expand your language skills. Culture Notes are provided to give you further insight into Swiss German language and culture. A Notes booklet is also included in PDF format.

        Comments about Swiss German Phase 1, Units 1-10:

        I really enjoyed this course. I had been trying to find a course for Swiss German since I still talk with relatives in Switzerland. A coworker told me about Pimsleur Swiss German and I bought it immediately. The last time I talked to relatives in Switzerland I was only on lesson four but they were surprised when I was able to speak a little Swiss. I hope there will be more lessons available soon. I continue to listen to the first ten lessons to review and improve my speaking skills.
