Re: Moving to German speaking Switzerland with a 9 yo kid not speaking German !

It would be possible in both Biel and Fribourg to enrol her in French speaking schools as they are both bilingual towns.
Given that 8H is the streaming year she would have to work very hard on her German to get up to the level required to be in the matura stream if You choose German as her first language but it is possible to do.

It's good for kids to be challenged but it's not always very nice for them to be playing 'catch up' all the time so I'd think very carefully before making any decisions.

You could contact Carlasmom on here who has three kids in local school in Biel.
