An American Gives Swiss German Lessons

It's my turn - "Express Vicki German".

I cannot tell you how often I experience conversations between Swiss that have more curves than the street to Arosa.  They leave me shaking my head in confusion.  Let me give you an example:
Kathy, have you heard the latest?

What Rosi?

You know my sister's daughter?

Yes, Silvi.

Yes right.  Well, Silvi’s daughter Eveline and her son-in-law Werner are having a baby – twins.

Now I have been waiting to pounce on this moment for years, dear Swiss readers. Vicki is at your service to give you a free German lesson:

Rosi's niece is having twins.
Or, Rosi's sister will be a grandmother.
