How to make friends with a Swiss person

Misinformed stereotype or stark reality? Whichever way round it is, how to make friends with the Swiss is a topic for most expats at some point during their time here. This animated guide lays out some ground rules for forming friendships with the Swiss - all with a heavy dose of humour. (SRF, swissinfo.ch)

Whether you're in Switzerland for business or pleasure, the guide has a wide range of pointers that could come in handy. It explains the 'challenges' of getting close to a Swiss person, and offers some advice on getting over the most commonly-encountered hurdles. 

But don't take this too seriously, this clip was part of the latest instalment of the comedy show 'Deville Late Night', part of the German-language programming on Swiss public television, SRF.
