ABSTRACT
The article explores the origin of the four national languages in Switzerland including German, French, Italian and Romansch. The geographical location of the country which is surrounded by four other nations including Germany, Italy, France and Austria results into people speaking various languages. It is a challenge among people in establishing a language everybody would understand resulting into bilingual road signs and people speaking more than one language.
