Hello!

Hi!

My name is Javi, I'm from Spain and I will be starting in september as an ERASMUS student at the Vetsuisse faculty in Zurich. I'm very excited and a bit frightened as I haven't found a room yet and my German is as good as nonexistent.

Re: Hello!

Welcome!

I know it's suggested to use a made up user name, but that one's gonna be a b!tch to type in every time you log in.

Re: Hello!

Bienvenido, Javi. I hope you have a great time in Switzerland. Don't worry about the language, you'll pick it up in no time. And in an academic environment, you probably won't even need it all that much (but it makes your life easier).

Enjoy it and welcome to EF !

Re: Hello!

ˇGracias!

Don't worry, Mud, I can type very fast and my whole name is even longer. About the language, I've heard that it is quite different from the standard German, which is the one they teach you at school.
