Hallo

Hi, Everyone -- my name is Kristina. I currently live in the Las Vegas area but am hoping to work, study and live in Switzerland within one year. I will be visiting Zurich in March.

I am a bilingual educator who speaks Spanish, German, Italian and some French, along with my first language, English, of course. I have made a video about myself for one of my classes -- I'm obtaining a master's in my field. Here's the link. http://animoto.com/play/T4rqWC0hH5peFAG1lxQ1Pg

Feel free to write! Or offer me a job! Ha ha...

Take care...

Re: Hallo

I'd really recommend clicking on the link (I'm usually reluctant to do so if I don't know the poster) - it's the coolest CV I've ever seen!

Welcome to the forum.

Re: Hallo

Welcome to the EF

That's one heck of a nice intro. And that is nice example how the CV should be prepared. Are you sure you are not one of those IT nerds

Re: Hallo

I can't tell if I'm replying to everyone or just one person, but I do not want to live in Sin City forever. It's fun here, but I want to be where my brain is stimulated, not my liver. Ha ha. Thanks for the comments on the video -- I'm not an IT nerd but rather had to create that video for one of my courses.

On another note, a friend and I are coming in March, and we're looking for reasonable lodging, bed and breakfasts. Are the rooms always so high? Does anyone have any recommendations for lodging in or near Zurich for a week or so?

Thank you!

The Ibis hotel is a cheap option. The link for Zurich is http://www.ibishotel.com/gb/booking/...pMiddleContent

There is one not too far from the center of Zurich. Very cheap though. I'm sure the Zurich members will be able to point you further in the right direction.

Oh, and welcome to the EF
