Re: Rav Adviser: need for translator?
If you live in a German speaking canton, the chances of getting a French speaking RAV advisor are not that great and English, the last time I looked, is not an official language in Switzerland, so why on earth would you expect an English speaking advisor? You might find an advisor who speaks English but as for running an entire session in English, I find that quite unlikely. Get a translator to go with you if you are uncomfortable with German and stick to the rules RAV gives out - otherwise life can get pretty grim quite quickly. RAV advises and can steer jobs your way and i if you cooperate, they can also help out with courses and schooling, but ultimately, you have to do the leg work. They are not known for their sympathy or kindness. If you need that, call a friend.
A valuable but incomplete strand of thought...
