A premium course with 30 high-quality, interactive learning videos
The member area holds over 30 interactive learning videos that are specifically tuned to the needs of our students. We make a point in providing relevant and practical content for you. We don’t want to be the same old boring language course, but one that provides hands-on information you can put to use immediately. Every week users vote for the next video they want us to create and the content that matters most to them. That way, we make sure that the stuff we do actually is of use for you. While watching a video, you have more than enough time to repeat words and phrases at home, stepping up your pronunciation skills to the next level. Our method has proven to have the best long-term effect on your practical Swiss-German skills — until Swiss-German feels natural to your tongue!

With over 30 videos you can learn where, when and how you would like to. No matter if you are on the bus, the subway or at home at your couch — you can access the online class from everywhere and with each device (phone, tablet and desktop).
The entire course is optimized for mobile devices. In videos of five to ten minutes our native speaking tutors explain the topics and situations that our members with for the most. These happen to be very practically relevant videos and knowledge that is immediately applicable. We don’t want to waste our or your time by studying words or grammar you won’t need anyway.
Our slogan is to be fast and down-to-earth all the way, the only metric that matters to us is: practical learning speed and accuracy. Existing videos cover situations and vocabulary at home, family, with friends, going out, buying groceries, partying, flirting, school, university, cooking and many more. Other videos are about topics at the workplace, e.g. how you have great customer contact and make clients feel “at home” and understood around you.
Live-chat with tutors and peers at any time
Communication between peers and helping tutors (native speakers) and applying language is one of our main concerns. Using our live-chat makes this especially easy. On average, 20 to 30 students and tutors are active all around the clock. The chat is the perfect opportunity for you to clarify all your questions about Swiss- German and Switzerland in general. It takes usually only a few minutes for answers to roll in.
Of course, many members tell us about
their story and background, or even what
they did the other day to practice their
language skills — which is exactly what we
want you to do! Tell others about your
hobbies here, your work and why you want
to study Swiss-German. Your peers will be very interested in hearing from you and chatting with you about life in Switzerland.
In this place, we also arrange group meetings and parties about twice per month in the big cities (Zurich, Basel, Bern, …) or wherever people are ready to meet. Coming to our gatherings of course isn’t mandatory, but it helps picking up the language and culture dramatically. Besides, it is a great way of making new friends.
The world’s biggest Swiss-German dictionary (by far!)
Naturally, you also gain full unlimited access to the biggest Swiss-German dictionary existing. You can already access a little part of the dictionary right now, though it only contains about 5 % of all words and neither example sentences nor pronunciation clues.
You can easily and quickly search for new, unknown words (even if you only know how it is pronounced). It works on your phone and tablet as well as on your main computer. For mobile devices, you can get our of ine version to look up words without internet connection.
Stream all Swiss TV stations – for free!
We achieved an exceptional deal with “Schweizerischen Rundfunk (SRF)”: You can stream all TV stations for FREE all around the clock on your phone, tablet or desktop computer using our platform. This includes the popular stations SRF1, SRF2 and SRF Info. You save your TV connection fees and access hundreds of Swiss-German quality movies and translated block-busters immediately. Especially SRF1 and SRF2 broadcast the latest on sports, education, culture and documentaries in Swiss-German.
Learn to handle all everyday situations effortlessly
All our vocabulary lists are sorted by topics and searchable. Illustrated with funny pictures, plenty of mnemonics and example sentences, our vocabulary lists make studying easy and fun.
We update and improve our lists continuously to steadily enhance the Swiss-German course. For each video, there is a summary of the most important words learned and how they are pronounced. Translations for all words exist in Swiss-German and High-German. The videos cover all everyday situations you might encounter, and you only watch the content that matters to you right now.
