Hello!

I thought I would drop an introduction since I'm new around here.

I'm a Canadian guy from the west coast of British Columbia. I recently moved to Zürich to be with my amazing wife, who has been living here for over a year. I am a civil construction surveyor by trade in my homeland, but since I don't speak an ounce of German, French or Italian, I think I'll be looking for other types of work.

I love Switzerland so far. Everything is so clean and green. The language barrier is going to be a bit of a roadblock, but I am excited to learn some German all the same.

My hobbies include DJing, music production, skateboarding, cycling and playing sports (basketball, football[aka soccer in Canada], tennis and badminton being my favourites).

I look forward to meeting like minded people, and taking in all that this beautiful country has to offer!

Re: Hello!

Welcome to the Forum! Are you from Vancouver area? Hope you enjoy all that Switzerland has to offer. There is a great program to learn German/French/Italian or any language for that matter at home called www.rosettastone.com if your interested in learning. I have found it quite useful as I too am from the USA and only speak English. Best of luck!

Re: Hello!

Thanks for the welcomes you two!

@sflorida_sweetie2 - I am from Victoria, which is on Vancouver Island. So pretty close to Vancouver. And yes, I have seen the Rosetta Stone software packages. They look great, but are quite pricey (especially if you but them in Europe. They are so much cheeper in Canada! ). I am trying my luck with using the internet and self teaching for now.
