Swiss Saturday: English

Evil HR Lady

There’s a joke that Switzerland is the only country to have a national language that no one speaks: German. In reality, Switzerland has four national languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh), and I’m no authority about how pure the other three languages are, but English is probably spoken more often than the official language of German. (As As a general rule, dialect speakers prefer English to High German in many cases.). As evidence of this, we have a new national hymn.
