I'm a 19 year old student of German and Spanish. I've spent some time abroad and plan on doing a lot more traveling. I'm hoping somebody here might help me with my Swiss German. I don't speak or understand it very well, but I'm eager to learn, as I find it quite interesting. I've loved the language since I first heard it in Zürich last year, when I spent four weeks in Switzerland through an exchange program.

I am now working in Hong Kong and will stay in Biel in September for long time, since I just set up a company there.

It would be great to know more people and share each other's experience.
