Do you want to learn Swiss German? I'm looking for a partner to form a small group

GrŁezi mitenand!

I want to start learning Swiss German from the start. I speak no German at all but would like to learn Swiss German to save time and communicate faster. I learn best by listening and speaking/repeating anyway and would like to focus on verbal communication in Swiss German instead of learning high German grammar for another 6 months.

I found a teacher recently and if I won't be lucky to find a course partner here, I still would like share some info with you, so if you wish to contact her directly please let me know.

She is Austrian married to Swiss, very open and sociable person. Her name is Eva Sattler-Buchner and she lives and gives her lessons close to the airport. She came to Zurich in 1981 and studied social anthropology, political science and international law here in Zurich.

The course I want to take is not cheap and it is not the best location for me as I will have to get there from Zug but I believe she is good as she seems very confident about teaching expats so if I only find someone who would like to learn, and like me is a beginner then I will be willing to make the effort.
I think it is always worth trying and taking one short course with her to see if it's really working for you.

Her prices for small groups are as follows:
10 60 minute lessons CHF 450.- per person
10 120 minute lessons CHF 850.- per person
(Individual lessons: 650 and 1.200 CHF)

I am free most mornings but evenings would not be possible. I am often busy between 4-8pm. Anything before these hours is fine.

thanks very much for the info! my wife and I have been taking private German lessons, will probably finish through A2 and then move to Swiss German lessons sometime this summer. if you have a positive experience with your teacher, hopefully you will post an update for the rest of us who are always looking for folks to learn from.

GrŁezi Izabela,

I no speak German, too. I would like to start to learn, I am working in Zug and would be great for me to take some lessons during lunch time. Is it a good time for you?


Nicola
