Swiss German from Scratch - COURSE 2

Live online Lessons in Swiss German for English Speakers that already have the basics of Swiss German and know High German at an A2-B1 Level.

Learn in a small group, with others and having fun.

We move on together to more complex structures and add modal verbs, past tense, separable verbs, the cases, prepositions and pronouns. Together with texts about culture, videos and songs we learn about Switzerland and analyze different dialects.

Rahel Roth

I am a graduated language teacher for High Schools and since 2018 I have been working as a freelance German teacher online.

I noticed that many of my students would like to learn Swiss German but struggle because of the scarce learning material and courses. Moreover lessons are often tailored to students with at least an intermediate knowledge of German.

My goal is to help expats learn Swiss German from scratch without any previous knowledge of German.
