New(ish) in Basel

Hi everyone
I have been viewing this forum for a while and thought it was about time I said hi and introduced myself properly. Iím from Nottingham, England and have been living just outside Basel for the last 18 months. I came here because of my husbandís work and have been trying to learn German, naively thinking I would be fully integrated with the locals and a bit more fluent by now! I enjoyed a couple of the Wednesday German conversation groups recently as a guest and looking forward to joining more events soon and meeting new people.

Hi,
Welcome to the Forum.
Where in Germany do you live? I live in Grenzach just about over a year now but have been in Germany for nearly three years. Let me know if you want to meet up for a coffee sometime.

Louise

Hi Louise
Thanks for the welcome. I live in Scwoerstadt and am often in Grenzach as my husband works there. Coffee sounds great, let me know when you are free.

Re: New(ish) in Basel

Hi Louise,

Welcome to the EF...and Basel albeit a little belated. I dragged my wife and son here from the Ireland although we are originally from the UK. He's in a local kindergarten (and is slowly getting to grips with the language) and my wife is currently at home but taking German lessons. Hopefully you'll get to meet at one of the conversation groups in the future

Once again welcome

Re: New(ish) in Basel

Thanks for the welcome. Finding EF a very useful resource.
Unfortunately canít make the pub crawl as back in the Uk that weekend but hope to meet you all at one of the future events. Anyone know if there is a curry night coming up?
