Hello everyone!

Just wanted to say hi! to everyone on here.

I'm new and just settling in to the Swiss way of life having moved to just outside Bulle last November.

I have moved from the UK with my two young school age daughters to live with my partner (he has been living here for 20 years or so) into an old Swiss farmhouse. It's beautiful and we are happy but I feel that now the children are finally settling down at their new school and making friends, it is my turn!
I wondered if anyone would like to meet for coffee and a chat? Bulle, Fribourg area? Or maybe Vevey?

I would love to start French classes too (as my children are fast overtaking my pitiful school girl french!) and wondered if anyone knows of any in the area?

Love the forum, whenever I am feeling a little homesick I usually find that someone on here has posted something witty and insightful which makes me laugh or inspires me to look forward and not back!

Take care everyone x

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome to the EF Balibelle. I lived in Vuadens many years ago, but I cannot offer any up to date advice.

What I have noticed is that posts on the Forum like yours, drop down and are never seen again. What you can do is organise a regular meeting in your area, for instance a weekly coffee meet up every Tuesday at 17:30 in the Migros at Bulle. People will slowly see this as a regular event, for wives and workers, and there might evolve a group of English speaking friends. http://www.englishforum.ch/calendar.php?c=1

Re: Hello everyone!

Hi. Thank you for replying so quickly.
That sounds like the pro-active way forward...great idea.
I did some research yesterday and have located a french class in Bulle that commences next month so I am hoping to meet a few people there too!
Thank you again for your advice.
