Re: Just moved to Geneva any pointers???

Welcome to Geneva and to EF
Geneva is a lovely city and an absolutely beautiful place to live.
The only difficult point is the amount of traffic.
You'll pick up the French quickly.
Try Migros school (www.ecole-club.ch)
Bertliz school is good if you need to learn to communicate without necessarily needing to write.

.... but also know that many many people in Geneva speak English very well.

Hello Mark.
As Sky says, try the Migros school.
It's not expensive and I found it very good for learning/improving French.
I'm sure you'll find some English-speaking friends very soon.
Good luck.

Re: Just moved to Geneva any pointers???

Don't worry this is one .... one of the mods will move it to the right place.
The intro is just a few words about whatever make you comfortable.
Many people don't make an intro, or just a vague one, some write a lot.
