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

My son was 10. He understands dialect, but chooses to speak German. The community provided extra German lessons for him. His lack of German skills was taken into account during the streaming decision - in accordance with BL law for new arrivals with non-German speaking parents. Since he was the only child in the canton to get 100% on the maths test, he went into pro-gymnasium . Fribourg/Bern may have similar laws.
