I lived in Zermatt for 23 years and most people speak English. In fact, I have heard the Swiss themselves using English to communicate with other Swiss people from a part that uses a different language. My impression is that most German speaking Swiss speak reasonable English, unlike the French and Italian speakers.

Zermatters speak a German dialect which is nothing like HIGH GERMAN!
