Re: Schools in Vaud: Timetables, Locations, Differences?

Hi I appreciate what you are saying, my last comment was aimed at gva. Anyhow I've looked further into things and still believe we are doing the right thing. Anything is better than where we are living in England, st least my son won't grow up addicted to drugs!!!
Over and out

Wow, you do know that drugs exist in Switzerland, don't you? And that drugs can be a big problem here too, sadly

Well,...you will not be able to get a rental contract without a job nor a residence permit.
Shell, I just do not know how to say this, but it is just not as easy as all that.

this is what I call optimism...
I appreciate that there might be quite a bit more behind your move than we are aware of. You mention your partner sharing a room when he comes over, so perhaps you already have contacts here which could make a load of difference. There have been folks who have jumped in at the deep end and been fine. However, I'd still say that if you are so willing to burn your boats, I only hope all three of you are good swimmers.

If you are set on the move, I'd suggest, if you are not already fluent, you all learn as much French as you can. Check the internet for all the 'general information' which can make life in any 'foreign' country so confusing to begin with. Check public transport, the best methods of finding a flat (there are loads of tips in stickies in the relevant EF sections), ways of improving a CV, which would also improve chances of getting work here, check the regulations for setting up a business and so on.

Good luck. Let us know how you get on.
