With 'Hoi', you'll learn to express your feelings and opinions, shop and meet people - all in Swiss German.

And you'll discover lots of handy phrases for small talk, eating out, making telephone calls, getting and giving help in an emergency, and other day-to-day language needs. 'Hoi' includes over 2000 words and phrases. They're derived primarily from the dialect spoken in the Zurich region, which is understood throughout the Swiss German speaking part of the country. 'Hoi' is chock-full of encouragement for you to get a grip on the expressions you'll need if you're to enjoy your time in Switzerland and feel at home here.
