Newly arrived student near Zurich

Hi all,

I recently registered on this forum so I thought I would start by introducing myself a bit:

I have just arrived this week from the UK to work at PSI, Villigen as a trainee for 9 months as part of my Masters thesis. I moved out of the guesthouse and into an apartment in Wurenlingen. Anyway I could go on with my life-story, previous universities, hobbies etc. but you will have to get to know me first, haha.

As a non-german speaking young British person in early 20s, this at first seems quite challenging to me, having not lived out of the UK before.

I am a friendly person, I left behind a lot of good friends in the UK to come here. I also left behind a girl who I was dating (not seriously) but this planned move also acted as a catalyst for the break-up of a serious relationship I had before that, around 3 months prior, as my American girlfriend didn't want to follow me around the world as a 20 year old and went back to the US to go to school. So here I am, single and only knowing 2 acquaintances so far in this country! (starting work on Monday so hopefully meet more).

So I am joining this forum to try to get to know more friendly english-speaking people similar to myself (of course I am also interesting in meeting people who aren't similar), maybe through the messages feature of this forum (not sure about forums or internet sites like this before). I will also keep up my end of the deal by finding posts similar to this one (I have read a couple) and messaging those people in my free time.

Thanks for having me on this forum!

Dave

Welcome to the Forum.

Go easy on the Private Message system - you are limited in number per day to begin with and most members prefer to see someone active on the site before they get in touch with them per PM.

Check out the Social Events - they give you a chance to meet people in real life!

Have a nice Sunday.

Re: Newly arrived student near Zurich

Thanks for the welcome. I haven't actually used the PM system yet, so I am going pretty easy on it thus far. I will check out the social events section of the forum at some point, the prospect of meeting people in real life sounds one too good to pass up.

Have a nice Sunday too, thanks for the fast reply.
