Bergli Book’s Hoi Guides are the best-selling Swiss German guides of all time, now with over 50,000 copies in print. The original English-Swiss German survival guide has been completely updated for this tenth anniversary edition, which features a larger format and all new-cartoons.   

Now you too can enjoy speaking Swiss German. With this survival guide’s over 200 cartoons and 2000 words and phrases, it’s not just easy, it is downright fun.

The expressions in this book are derived primarily from the dialect spoken in the Zurich region, but are similar to those used all over German-speaking Switzerland.

With Hoi, you'll learn to express your feelings and opinions, to shop and meet people. You'll find what you need to enjoy social life or engage in sports or outdoor activities. You'll discover lots of handy phrases for making small talk, eating out, making telephone calls, getting and giving help in an emergency, as well as other day-to-day language needs.

Hoi is full of laughs--and encouragement to get a grip on the expressions you'll need to feel at home in Switzerland.
