That is the only reason?
Please tell me you aren't living under their roof.

If you have some experience working with kids, my suggestion is to look for babysitting jobs over the summer. There is no school, I am sure there are a lot of parents who could do with some help.

Re: Moving to Zurich in 3 weeks

If you are near an airport, and don't speak the local language, you sometimes can get a job in the hospitality sector. Best bet for that is Zurich, but I'm not sure where you'll be.

Re: Moving to Zurich in 3 weeks

i have basic german and aparently i learn quick when i read it according to my boyfriend he thinks its hilarious i still sound irish when speaking german.

Im moving to be with my boyfriend yes, but im also moving because I have fallen in love with switzerland the culture the food the people when he asked it took me a long time to decide but it makes sence for us to be here for the future.

I honestly cant wait and i know i learn things at a fast pace because i emerse myself into whatever i am focused on and challenge myself i have set a target to be fluent in swiss german in 6 months max.

thanks for your posts xx

There's some need, I would imagine. But you have to have really high language abilities in both of the languages.
