Newbie to English Forum

Hi there,

My name is Kim and I am from South Africa. I have just moved to Zurich with my fiance, who got a great job here. I lived in the Netherlands for many years, in Ireland for a few years and for a year in Thailand and now Switzerland!
Switzerland is amazingly beautiful and I really am delighted to be here. It can be quite difficult at times to fit into another culture again (especially learning a new language again), but the benefits of being here far out way the obsticles

I found this forum to be very helpful with settling in and the move. There seems to be a great support structure here online, so thanks for all the help so far!

Kim.

Great to see such a refreshingly positive intro post

Welcome to Switzerland and to EF! I'm sure you'll fit in well seeing as you seem open minded and ready to dive right in
