Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

The 14 year old may struggle a lot if going into a public school without speaking a Swiss language. Could you possibly use an international school instead? The 7 year old shouldn't have a problem.

Re: Indians in Muttenz and Schooling

My daughter was 13 when she made the move from IS Berne to local (French) school in Fribourg. It needed a lot of extra effort (read private tuitions), but she got there, moved to the pre-gym stream from the general stream, went through college, and is at Uni now.

It is doable - and totally worth it!!!

After Kindergarten, Hochdeutsch is the language of education in the German-speaking parts.

Swiss German will come very quickly when they start school here. It's not essential for learning as the lessons are all in standard German. Dialect will be picked up during break time, sports lessons and meeting up with friends after school.
