Is it possible to take the course in English or not?
If it's the same as other cantons, you can take the theory exam in English (well, a sort of English, remembering when I did it), but the practical exam has to be taken in the local language.

You could try putting together a glossary of nautical terminology in that language so you aren't completely at sea (or get someone to help you do so). There are also a number of multilingual dictionaries - I have the "Internationales Yachtwörterbuch", which I bought in a major bookshop in Zurich, but that might be overkill.
