A single, true Swiss-German actually does not exist. Some call Swiss-German “Schwizertiitsch” or “Schwitzerditsch”, others “Schwyzerdiitsch”, and so on. You see, it’s complicated. But don’t worry - the different Swiss dialects are only spoken not written. You just have to get used to the melody and the pronunciation. Because of this, the grammar of Swiss dialects is easier than written languages. And in the end, with your attempts to speak Swiss-German, you will conquer the (delicate chocolate) hearts of the Swiss in no time.
