I have lived in the Italian and French speaking areas of Switzerland. My parents are both Swiss Germans. Through this environment, I believe that I not only have a knowldge of Switzerland but I also have a good insight in the cultural differencies existing in the country.


There are differencies between the various regions (mainly determined by the language/cultural areas). As a multilingual, I feel that I belong to all of them... it's a great feeling.
