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

Thank you for these quick replies :-)

I am not sure I was clear: I have the feeling that this is a great opportunity for her to learn German. As such, I do want to enroll her in German school, even if I could organise our life differently and get her to a French speaking school.

But she is 9 and she is Swiss. Enrolling her into a Swiss German school would allow her to master French, German and English, and I feel this is a great opportunity.

So my point is NOT: how can I get her to a French school ?
My point is: am I naive or crazy to send her to a German speaking school ? Am I wrong when I think that kids learn very quickly in immersion ?

I am looking for families having sent their kids to a German speaking school while they were not speaking German.

Thank you
