Hi,


Thought I'd drop in to say Hi as I'm new to all this EF stuff and will be using it regularly. Well that's the hope.


I currently live in London, but hoping to move to Lausanne or Geneva (family in both, so just trying to figure out where) in about 2 1/2 years time - when my son, who has just turned 9, will finish primary school. The plan is, we move out there where he will start at secondary (UK equivalent) level. It will be just me and my son, (I'm a single parent), so it's a huge step and want to make the right decision for both of us. However, my son is already there!! He can't wait to leave!


I'm currently studying my MA English Lit and will be finished in 2013 and hoping this will help in my job search as I am currently a writer and work within publishing too.


I speak French at intermediate level - having graduated in a joint French degree, and my son is currently studying French. I guess we're currently in preparation, without anything concrete put in place, but I'm optimistic.

So, thanks in advance for any and all advice and I hope to return the favour.
