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

Kids definitely pick up language quicker when dropped in a foreign school, speaking from experience. And you learn it differently as to when you're an adult.

I got put in french schools at an early age, and went through about five years of primary school (along with some seperate english lessons one day a week at a local lycee). My french is still better than my German, and my accent is almost perfect, even though I hardly ever use my french, it got buried there in my brain.

Learning German at my age now is much, much harder
