Dialogues for our lessons are finished.
The pictures are ready and it's Monday again.
But most importantly are you ready for this week's lesson?
One couple, one question, multiple complaints, and an unexpected turnover of events.
And it all started with the one question What are you doing? "Was machsch?"
Asking questions can be a powerful tool to start a conversation in Swiss German. Without questions, we wouldn't receive the information we need.
Nobody is a mind-readers and the only way to glimpse into someone's mind is through the use of questions.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to say and use the question What are you doing? "Was machsch?".
Along with that, you'll get to know how to both make complaints and then show support, ending in just the right amount of balance.

See you tonight. We will talk about the story and practice present tense in Swiss German.
Finding accommodation in Switzerland can be a challenge. However, you will learn how to find accommodation in Swiss- German and speaking this language can be your selling point in this competitive market. Trouble always rolls in when searching for a new house and trying to decide which one to go for. But add in a partner that complains about everything... we've got plenty of additional stressful days coming up. Here you'll get more than familiar with complaints, trying to calm down the situation, and staying sane amongst the chaos.
We will practice in our live lesson the following vocab and pharases:
Was meinsch? ...
What do you mean?...
Was seisch zu dere Wohnig?
What do you say about this apartment? ...
Also, was meinsch dezue?
What do you think about this?
Lueg Schätzeli, wie findsch das Huus?

Du muesch uufhöre z jammere.
You need to stop complaining.
Wie meinsch das?
What do you mean?
Was wottsch demit säge?
