How to speak better Swiss German
Do you like clothes shopping? Clothes trends change all the time. Some make a comeback whilst others tend to be forgotten. Do you follow any trends? I usually go to a shop and pick out the things that catch my eye. Then I have to try them on. I don’t follow any trends, but just go with my feeling and what I see on how well something suits me. In today’s lesson you will learn how to name clothes items, give compliments and ask for advice.
