Where is German spoken?



Switzerland has three official languages: German, French and Italian. There is also a fourth national language called Romansh a Germanic-infused Latin language similar to French, but it is only used in certain municipalities of Graubünden.

About 64% of the population speaks German, 20% French, 6.5% Italian, 0.4% Romansh, and 9% a combination.

The Italian spoken in certain parts of Switzerland are sometimes referred to as Lombardi, which incorporates Germanic grammatical phrasing that is not always mutually intelligible with standard Italian.
