5.0 étoiles sur 5 Concise and acurate 7 décembre 2006
Par Rolf Riesen - Publié sur Amazon.com
I grew up in Switzerland and bought this book out of curiosity to see how others see the Swiss. I found the information in this booklet very concise and easy to read. For the most part the book is very acurate and up-to-date. It is also fun to read and gives lots of information on understanding the Swiss, their history, and their customs. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about the Swiss and their country.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Switzerland - Culture Smart! 27 juin 2007
Par Sarah W. Megonigal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I bought this book as a gift for a graduate student who was going to work in Switzerland for two years. However, I did look through it before giving it away, and I had done quite a bit of research on line before picking this particular item. The book seemed to me a very practical guide for someone taking up residence in Switzerland, and was not so much meant for the casual 2-week vacationer. The sections on cultural differences between the Swiss and other people were particularly interesting, and would head off some awkward moments for a new immigrant. The parts about rules for apartment living sound quite strict for someone from America, but, again, would prevent misunderstandings between Swiss and foreign tenants. There are also the more usual guidebook sections on recreation, such as hiking, skiing, eating in restaurants, etc. The student who received the book proclaimed it "great", and I think it will come in handy in the months ahead.

I bought this book for a friend in the U.S.A. As a Swiss I was very curiouse to read how "the Swiss" are.
I can agree with most things in the book and recomand "Switzerland - culture Smart!" to everybody who is interested in getting a quick overview about the general Swiss culture and attitude.

The Swiss people love to tell visitors about the history of their country. Reading this book first helps you understand them better and allows you to ask intelligent questions.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Spoken German? 1 janvier 2013
Par Oncle Willie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I have only read the intro and the first chapter but have found a few errors. The most glaring is the "German" language spoken in Switzerland. The Swiss speak a language called Schweizerdeutsch or Swiss German. It is NOT the high German (hoch Deutsch) taught in high school and college classes throughout the US. In fact, many Germans will have trouble understanding the native Schweizerdeutsch. Don't fret because most Swiss learn standard German in school and use it in official life.

The book itself is really very good. I learned much I either did not understand previously or that was new to me. I am looking forward to reading the whole book and then keeping it handy on my next trip to Switzerland.

I am using the Pimsleur basic course in Swiss German available here on Amazon. I should be able to carry on a limited conversation in Schweizerdeutsch in Bern and surprise the heck out of my distant relatives and the innkeeper.
