I meant that judging from native-born Swiss like Betrand who post at the English Forum, I would say that many Swiss do in fact speak English. Many is not necessarily "all" though.
Yes, I thought I'd misunderstood.

While explaining where I live, I used the word "boondocks" to an Australian friend of mine. She didn't know the word and after I defined it, she said, "oh, woop woop". Australian for boondocks. English, the international language.

Completely off topic, hope you're enjoying the snow! My dad lives in Potomac and can't stop complaining.
