From Chile to Switzerland...

Hi Everyone! I would like to introduce myself. I am a chilean woman who got married to a swiss guy a year ago. We decided to live in Switzerland, so I moved near Zürich.
The year here has been interesting. I started immediately to learn German (at the beginning I could only speak English with my husband). Fortunately wasn't very difficult, so after finishing B2 level, I started learning swiss german...I understand a lot but I am still not able to speak.
I found this forum and it's very useful, I would like to stay in touch with english speaking people, I hope to find people from Chile too.

Re: From Chile to Switzerland...

Hi coco.nails!!

well as a matter of fact I'm looking for interesting people to talk with, no matter if it's in English, Spanish or even German
I've been to Mexico once, I love it, must be because I grew up watching those telenovelas, el chavo del ocho, carrusel, marimar, maria mercedes, rosa salvaje, etc,etc! It was part of my childhood so I think that may be the reason why I'm so fond of Mexico.

hope to stay in touch then

Oh, not sure if you know this, but Cablecom offers a mexican telenovelas and Canal de las estrellas pack. I cant have this where im living as cablecom doesnt serve here, but as soon as i find another apartment and move in, i will hire this because i miss my novelas so much.
Do you have kids yet? I have 2 little ones.

<-- Why speak english If you could speak spanish here (translation).
tipo welcome to the forum, we can speak spanish here but we dont because then the other members will feel left out. Is an english forum and the language spoken must be english. We often write in spanish but we put the translation next to it. Here are people from all over the world and if we start talking each in our language the forum will be caos.

I think also swisscom can offer them, but swisscom is just a bit more expensive
Regarding working before having kids is a very smart desision
