hello everyone from chicago/england

I'm coming to Zurich in May!! I've spent a few years in England and I'm from Chicago.

I start german lessons this week but it would still be cool to meet some english speakers, Americans/British/Australians etc

Hello fellow Chi-towner! Best of luck on your move and let me know if you need anything. I'm a quiet train ride away in Basel.

Re: hello everyone from chicago/england

thanks everyone; baselboo i have some family in Basel so I'll be there to visit on some weekends.

Now my focus is on finding a place to live. I'll be in Zurich next week to look around, and I'm trying to get appointments set for that time. I'll have a lot of time to look around the city as well and get to know the different neighborhoods.

The first German lesson went surprisingly well

Make sure you get your fill of Gino's they just don't have the deep dish pizza in CH like they do in Chi-town.

Re: hello everyone from chicago/england

thanks everyone; I'm coming to Zurich this week to look at apartments. It would be nice to meet some of you but I'll have to wing it as I'm not sure when my viewing appointments will be.

I'll check the events forum, but if there's anything unofficial going on let me know

The calendar is a good place to check, it lists official and unofficial social events. Good luck with the apt hunt and smooth transfer here, welcome to the EF.
