Newspaper in English

In France there were 2 newspapers printed monthly with French news in English, is there an an equivalent for CH. I fear my language skills will take a while to be up to browsing the locals.

Re: Newspaper in English

There are no newspapers as such in Switzerland, but there are various print and online publications: general and specified. Probably many more in Swiss-Germany that I don't know about:

Print publications:
Inside Swistzerland Magazine
Sports and wellness
Business in Switzerland
WRS Magazine
Swiss News

Online Publications:
www.Swisster.ch (recommended but subjective opinion as I work for them)
www.SwissInfo.ch

Radio Stations:
WRS 88.4 (lake Geneva area only, and web)

Re: Newspaper in English

If there is I've never come across it. The only English language news service I've come across is this Swisster:

Re: Newspaper in English

http://swissnews.ch/

not sure how good it is, but have seen it in the receptions of a number of "English" companies here.

(They also supply the news for the "English Show" radio show in Basel)

Re: Newspaper in English

Another English printed periodical in Switzerland is Cream Magazine.

I subscribe for a bit, while not any news in it, it did have some interesting articles about different aspects of Switzerland.

(Swissinfo is also great for news, but not printed anywhere )

EDIT - ok so it seems they stopped printing a while back - Why can someone not update the website, hence stopping you purchasing a dead publication!!!

Re: Newspaper in English

I've been visiting www.genevalunch.com for news digest of the Lac Leman region. Good resourceful site.

Otherwise use a French/German to English Google translator tools on the Le Matin or 20min websites.

Re: Newspaper in English

You could try World Radio Geneva as well, for a "view from the other side":
