Re: Work in one canton and live in another

a dive in Neuchâtel is expensive, but a lot cheaper than a dive in Zurich or Genenva, a large luxury flat here is very reasonable - a dive dirt cheap (3 room appartment for 300). Just depends, as said, horses for courses.

Gechoe is Swiss, so no problem about permits etc.

Have you got a job and permit yet? .
Permit won't be an issue since he's Swiss but a job would be useful and then the place to live would be governed by the job location obviously.

Ah well speaking Afrikaans would really help with Swiss German- my mil spoke Afrikaans and understood Swiss German quite well.

Re: Work in one canton and live in another

I am currently looking a job online, but personally believe that job hunting would be easier to do when in Switzerland.


My intention is to go over to CH and rent a single room in a central area, then get any form of temp job to tide me over while I search for a permanent job during the day and take German lessons at night.


Once I have found a permanent job, I can decide on where to look for a suitable home for my family.

Re: Work in one canton and live in another

PS: forgot to mention in my last reply that I am fluent in Afrikaans, both written and spoken. I am a bit wary of trying to learn German here as I believe that the German spoken in CH is a bit different to the German taught based on the Germany dialect.

It's still worth learning. High German is understood everywhere in German Switzerland, and almost all written communication is in HG.

You can pick up a local dialect once you get here.
