Uk to Basel. Trying to learn German.
I did write a short intro a while back but it was brief and boring so here's another with a bit more info.
I moved here in Basel two months ago and did my first months of intensive German at Migros. Before coming here I had no knowledge of the language at all so it's quite overwhelming but I'm staying strong. I then managed to find work! Couldn't believe my luck. Working on the road construction. That lasted 2 weeks, due to my bad German and no one could understand me or I them. It was a real kick in the teeth for me and I was feeling really down about the whole situation. So I'm now doing a second course in German and continuing to search. In England I was working as a welder. I also did my own sculpture work and photography.
I'm now starting to struggle in finding things to do, I have a lot of spare time now as my second German Course is only 2 times a weeks in the eveinings. I have made a couple of friends in Switzerland so far but it's not as easy as being in your home country. The launguage barrier is a pretty big issue. If anyone in the Basel area wants to do something then give me a shout. I am a very keen photographer. Love street photography so a photog buddy would be sweet. Love art. Music and all that other good stuff. 30 years old but younger at heart. I come from a small town call Stroud in the Midlands. In Gloucestershire. Always willing to meet up for a beer or coffee.
