perhaps I should have asked, do you expect them to speak Berndeutsch oder Deutsch?
As Bern is a bilingual canton I'd be glad they could express themselves in French or German. I never would expect them to speak Bärndütsch. Don't get me wrong I don't have anything against foreigners. But I deal with people who have been living here for ten and more years and don't understand anything. I have lived abroad myself and know that life in a foreign country can be difficult, even more if you can't understand the locals. But come on, ten years in country without one single word of German or French?
