Die Schweizermacher

Language book based on feature film comedy: Die Schweizermacher – A Swiss German Tutorial

To create this unique book, the language experts at Soft Landing worked together with the director of Switzerland’s most successful feature film, the comedy Die Schweizermacher. The film, which follows three individuals from different countries as they overcome the hurdles to obtaining their Swiss passports, is ideally suited to help with learning the language.

As you watch the film you can follow along in the book, where the dialogue is presented in four columns:
• Word-by-word transcription of the Swiss German dialogue
• Translation into High German (Hochdeutsch)
• Translation into English
• Notes explaining unusual words, phrases, cultural references and “inside” jokes

The book also includes a basic grammar section, making this a complete text for learning Swiss German no matter what your level of study.
