Too basic if you already speak standard German

If you already speak standard German you'll find this course too basic. It's basically a collection of a few standard German words and phrases with Swiss pronunciation, despite in reality Swiss German is considerably different from the standard German. After finishing 5 lessons I must've learned fewer than 5 new words in Swiss German.
But of course, if you don't already speak standard German this would be a good starting point to learn basic words and phrases in Swiss German.

Really helpful!

This is a really helpful audio book, good accents and vocabulary. A long intro but worth understanding.
