      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.

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

      Purchased the Swiss German lesson because my boyfriend and his family are from Switzerland. He speaks English fluently but his family is limited on their English. So wanted to learn some words/phrases in order to be better included in the conversations with them.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I really enjoyed the lessons but wish that I had purchased the German Comprehensive ones instead. Mainly because the Swiss German lessons are only 10 and the German lessons are vast and numerous. Also, because most Swiss people can understand German as well. Enjoyed the lessons but German would have better to purchase than the Swiss German. Could have spent that money on other lessons instead. Oh well.

        I'm understanding why my classroom German doesn't help me in Switzerland.
