Moving to Biel in June

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently in Bremgarten (1 hour away from Biel) and will be moving to Biel in June. I have 2 kids (7 and 4), so I will be very happy to meet up with other mothers... Being a single mother (and not having my kids one week end out of 2), I would also enjoy meeting up with people on those week end for a drink, hike, badminton game, movie... well, you get the point.
I'm also interested in learning more German. I'm to the level of B2 (migrosschule grade), a little more than basic conversation. So if anyone would like, in return, to learn english or french (I'm bilingual more or less), I would be very happy to exchange some hours of conversation in either language.

Looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hey,
I live in Biel and work as an aupair here. I have to watch two kids, 2,5 and 8, and although I can't offer german lessons since i'd need them too, we can meet up for a drink.
Please answer here, if interested.

Hello and welcome in Bienne!
Have a look to the link here bellow:
http://www.bilinguisme.ch/CMS/default.asp?ID=1853
It's a great way to both meet people and learn the language.
That was one of my big decision on 1st of January to start a tandem and ( oh my god!) we are alredy in June
I'am also French, and living in Bienne for 4 years now.
Tell me when you are settle in Bienne, we should try to go for a drink once and please not hesitate to ask if you have any practical question.
See you soon!
Sandrine

Not as general as the UNIL Tandem but a useful resource that I had not seen before!
