Recently moved to Biel/Bienne

Hi everyone, my name is Brie. I'm 24, just graduated from university with a degree in Business Management, and recently moved to Biel from California (my husband is from Biel). I would love to meet other young English speakers who have moved to Biel or the surrounding area as well as I am finding it difficult to meet people since I don't speak German or French (but I am learning German). Also, if anyone has tips on finding a job in the area for an English only speaker, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you

Re: Recently moved to Biel/Bienne

Hi Brie,

Just today I attended a meet-up for people looking for a language tandem partner in Biel/Bienne. You need to speak a certain level of German or French in order to be able to communicate and offer your knowledge of English in exchange. The next opportunity to be paired with a tandem is 10/22. the service is free of charge.

Might something like this be of interest to you?

I'm also happy to meet for coffee though I'm no longer "younger people" (When did that happen?)

Re: Recently moved to Biel/Bienne

Thank you for the replies. I started an intensive german course with migros last week and it's been very useful in helping me quickly advance my german and especially my vocabulary.
