Today at Deutschkurs we talked about sending and receiving letters and packages at the PostOffice or die Post so I thought we'd have a postbox or ein Briefkasten today. As in Spain, postboxes in Switzerland are yellow.
To post a letter to England you must buy eine Briefmarke (same in Swiss German) or stamp and it will cost you 1.30CHF or 1.40CHF. Our homework was to look at http://www.post.ch/ and work out how much it would cost to send a variety of things to places around the work.
We also learned that a small parcel - ein kleines Paket - is called ein Päckchen or Päckli.
zum Bespiel -
ein Brot bread- ein Brötchen a roll - Büürli/ Weggli
