Spanish/Italian - Swiss German/High German tandem in Zurich

Hi all,

I am a native Spanish and Italian speaker (Italian father and Spanish mother) looking for someone that would like to help me improve my German. In exchange I offer the same with either Spanish or Italian. Ideally I would like to improve my high German but at the same time get to understand Swiss German a bit better.

I would say that I have a B1/B2 level of high German and a very basic understanding of Swiss German.

Send me a PM or post here if interested!
