Finally decided to introduce myself

After 2 years of living here, and more than a year of being a member on EF, I have finally decided I have to introduce myself cause that newbie thing on my account is just annoying me too much. I am swiss, born and raised in egypt, my parents decided I dont need to learn german since ``english is the rising language`they said. Anyways so i speak fluent arabic and english, and moderate swiss german ( i gave up on german long time ago, doesnt make sense for me to learn 2 languages at once, so i thought id start with swiss german). So how do i get rid of that newbie thing? I started participating and posting my opinions, would that help ?
jo anyways, I find this forum very entertaining. And Im looking forward to meet people.

My best from Basel.

Lili

Re: Finally decided to introduce myself

Welcome Lili. I was also wondering about the newbie thing...Seems 30 posts will do it.

Just start a thread about what salary you would need to live on in Basel, reply to the comments posted and you will not be a Newbie for long !

How about "How to find brown sugar in Egypt"?

Welcome Lili. After a year on EF you can't say you haven't been warned.
