Do I need to speak one of the native languages (German, French, Italian) to live in Zurich/Switzerland?

English is widely spoken in Switzerland. You do not need to speak any of the native languages in order to live and study here. However, we encourage international students to take German (the local language in Zurich) as a foreign language during their studies to feel more comfortable in the country and better understand the country and its people.
