Hi, thank you very much. like+ favorite (your gallery ).
Hi Kent, I take five minutes of your time under this wonderful picture to explain you something about languages in Switzerland. When you answered to me, you wrote that you wish speak better German, as I do. I do, in fact, but I have learned it in school and in Berlin... Yes, because in Ticino you speak Italian. The national languages of Switzerland are four, spoken in four distinct geographical and cultural areas. The German one is the biggest, spoken in the centre, north and east side of the Country. There you find Zurich, Bern, Basel, St.Gallen, Lucerne. French take a big part too, in the western side and the references towns are Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Sion, Montreux. Fribourg and Bienne are bi-languages towns: French and German are spoken in two distinct sectors. Italian culture is the third one, a sort of minority, because it's spoken just in the Canton of Ticino and in 4 valleys in the Canton of Graubünden. Actually, Switzerland is the only Country in the world where Italian is also national language outside Italy. (There also are some small parts of Slovenia and Croatia, on the coast line, where Italian is still spoken, but it is another history, taking source after World War II). In the Canton of Graubünden people also speak Romansh.
There is a good film about the firsts ascents of the Eiger's north face: "Nordwand".
