Re: Finding a distraction in Zurich

Agreed. We couldn't afford German classes when we moved here and they weren't offered by the canton back then. I somehow still landed a very good job and have been gainfully employed since. I really wish I could have taken an intensive German class when I had the time, but you do what you can.

Tell your wife just to put herself out there. There are numerous expat Facebook groups in the area where she can start communicating online. There are also English speaking fitness groups and yoga studios. This is how I was able to start meeting like minded people and build my life here.
When I came here to Zürich in 95' they paid for all my German courses including intensive courses.

Maybe send her to a Swiss cooking school-she can learn how to make real Rösti
