New to Zurich

Hello Everyone,

I am moving to Zurich in the next few months and wanted to start making friends. I have been to Zurich many times and travelled and lived in Europe often.

My only concerns is the language barrier, as I only know French and Italian plus mother tongue English.

Any tips?

Re: New to Zurich

Welcome to the forum and soon to Zurich.

Your stated "basic" (per your profile) knowledge of French and Italian gets you off to a good start given both are two of the four Swiss national languages.

I would advise you start learning German in advance of your arrival if you have a chance or asap on arrival. It will make integration much easier and faster.

With regards to making friends, one great way of doing that when you get here is by attending social events organized by EFers. There are many to choose from.
