Zürich-bound

Hi everyone,

I've just joined the forum, so I thought I'd introduce myself.

My name is Lewis and I am currently studying German & Economics in Aberdeen. I am hoping to spend my year abroad, beginning in September this year, in Zürich! I have itchy feet just thinking about going there, can't wait! Once I return after my year abroad, and complete my studies here in the UK, I will also emigrate for the long term - to Zürich.

I am already fluent in German and I am preparing myself for Swiss German in every way I can without actually being there yet, in order to make integration with the Swiss (and the international residents) as smooth as possible.

Any advice you all have would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to getting to know the community here.

Cheers,
Lewis

Re: Zürich-bound

Hoi Lewis da . A nice intro and welcome to the forum. You are very well prepared from the sound of things and your fluent German language skills will certainly accelerate your integration as will your keeness in getting to grips with Swiss-German. There's tons of helpful information on the forum for newcomers in der Schweiz to help you plan and prepare in advance of arriving. Then once you are here, start attending some of the many social events and activities organized by EFers. You will soon make friends of that I am sure. Have loads of fun and welcome once more! Cheers

Thanks for the warm welcome, ishaka.
Yeah this forum looks like it has a lot of helpful resources, which is great and the social events too are something I could think about once I arrive.
