Re: How did you find this forum?

I was searching the Internet for resources for learning Swiss German and I found a link to a sub-forum here. I found it very useful, found out about some really great aids to help me familiarize with Swiss German, and I liked the rest of the forum as well.

I was searching for information on relocating to Switzerland and found it via a google search. In addition, we also heard about it from one of my husbands colleagues.

Found the site through Google whilst searching for English speaking job vacancies. Have only come to Basel three months ago to join my Fiance who has lived here for some time. Hope to learn loads!!

Re: How did you find this forum?

I am Swiss, my Better Half is American. We had problems with forest roaches in our home in rural Michigan, so I googled "forest roaches," and one of the first hits was a thread on the EF.

Glad I found the Forum. We didn't get any help concerning the roaches, by the way, but I found important info on all sorts of other things, and once in a while I can help other EF members too.

I moved from the US to Basel and told a friend who lives in Bristol that I was looking for a dance partner in Basel; she said I should look on EF.

Re: How did you find this forum?

Hey guys.

Okay, my story :

My sister (and some other great people) live in Solothurn. I visited her last month for my bday and I can´t explain how much I enjoyed staying there ...
When I came back to Prague, I realised how much I miss that place.
So I started to think about looking for a job there, but my problem is that i do not speak german (I know just few words) ... I came on google and typed "jobs in Switzerland for english speakers" ... and this was about 5th link ...

I am here just few moments and I like it

so, hopefully one day this forum will help me ...

and if you are still reading = thank you

have a great day guys
