New Canadian/American just might be in your local area? :D

Hi! hello!

I'm Gabriella, 19. Nice to meet you...all!

I'm sort of on a break before attending university in the Fall. I live in the tiniest of villages and I'm hoping to possibly meet more people!

I'm attempting to learn german, but I wouldn't mind speaking english with a fellow native english speaker

Have a wonderful rest of the day!

Hello and welcome to the Forum. Keep an eye on the events calendars to see what may be of interest, or arrange something yourself. Coffee / beer social events tend to attract people...

Hi Gabriella, welcome to Switzerland and the EF!

Check out the Social Events section for things to do with English-speaking people, each event should include the location prominently in the title, so you can tell whether you are able (or can be bothered!) to get to it.

Enjoy!

Hi Gabriella,
Welcome to Switzerland! I have never even heard of this village.

It must be in the German speaking region!

The 900 inhabitants have their own Wiki Page. Not bad.
