Re: What is the fastest way to learn Swiss German?

listen to the local radio/tv. you're taxed 460CHF per annum for it, may as well get some use out of it.

Hi,
I am at C1 level in High German. I understand a lot of it (speak a bit worse than I understand, but I can communicate). I have a big problem with Swiss German. I really don't understand it and when I hear it I just BLOCK and feel like I am listening to Swedish or something. Most people that I meet during everyday activities probably think I don't speak German at all because I have to switch to English very often (it is still better than my High German and I feel better when speaking English...).
So....
What is the best and fastest way to learn Swiss German? I am very interested in learning it. But I don't have much time and I can't afford another course beside High G. How did you learn Swiss and how long did it take you to learn it?
