Hi Vasuda -
The ticket machines are menu driven and simple to use for buying half-fare tickets. You may choose English, French, German or Italian.
They are fast, there are lots of them, and the lines are rarely more that 3 people. I use them even when my train is pulling in....although I do rush a bit. ;-)
Search the SBB web site (from the "search" item at the top of the home page) for "ticket machines" and work your way through the menu to get to instructions. You may practice on-line:
Basically you enter start point ( shown at the top and assumed to be the station your are in at that time, (but you can select "alternate connections" and enter a different start point) and destination (common ones are shown already) and follow the menus. At one point, you can chooses "half-fare" or children's or discounted vs. "without half fare card" or "full fare/adult."
