Atmosphere of Switzerland: religion and languages
Switzerland is one of the most democratically developed countries in the world. That is why the state language here isn’t just one. There are three of them, German, French, and Italian. In these languages, state legislative acts are drawn up and meetings with federal government bodies are held. Most of Swiss speak the German dialect, Schweizerdeutsch. About 20 percent of the population speaks French. It is distributed in the adjoining lands of Geneva, Friborg and Valais. No more than 5 percent of Swiss citizens speak Italian. Even Rhaeto-Roman has the status of the national language. It is considered a derivative of the old Latin language, and only about 1 percent of the population speaks it. It is distributed mainly in the mountainous region of Graubünden.
