From Ticino to Zürich :)

Hi everyone!

I'm Micaela, from Ticino. I'm 25 years old and I just moved to Zürich 1 month ago.
I've found an aupair job in a good family, I really would like to learn German and then find a position as hairsylist, my real job, that I love.
I'm attending the language courses in Migros Schule during the evenings on Tuesday and Thursday, cause I just have basic knowledge of the language, but I can say I learn quickly

Anyway, I would love to find something part time to do, while I'm working as aupair, cause I have a lot of free time during the time the children are in the kindergarten, and it would be also a good way to meet new people, "settle in" the city, and continue with my job or get a new experience.


I'm a open-minded person, very friendly, and my hobbies are walking and snowboarding.

I hope I will meet good people on this forum! Sorry for my English, it's not perfect.
Looking forward to hearing from you

Micaela

Welcome to the forum Micaela.

Hope your family are covering the costs of your language course. They're supposed to.

Most of those rules will apply to Swiss nationals too.

Enjoy the experience and the course and hope you get the job you're looking for soon.

Hello Medea and thank you for your reply

My family paid a half language course for me to the Migros School, but basically they don't have to pay it obligatory.
I went to an agency in Lugano where they look for the families, ask you your skills and your needs, what you want to be (if nanny, aupair or baby sitter..) and help you to find the best family based on your requests. They also clearly explain you have to cover the costs of the language courses.
It's okay, I had a bad experience with a family in Basel where I only stayed for 1 month, and now I just feel lucky, this family is perfect for me and I feel good with them
