Hi all, I'm moving to Zurich

Hi everyone, I have been reading the forum for quite a few months, since the opportunity arose for me to transfer to Zurich. Since my contract just came through a couple of days ago, I figured it was time to register. I will be starting work in early January, once the visa is approved!

Anyway, to give a little information about myself, I am 25, and will be working in Oerlikon/Seebach. I don't speak much German, so am teaching myself a crash course.

I'm looking forward to experiencing life in a different country and visiting new places (I haven't ever been to a country which shares a land border with another, it seems like quite a novelty), trying new things, and meeting new people.

Re: Hi all, I'm moving to Zurich

Hi

I have just moved to Zurich and I'm only 21 so I thought I was going to feel a bit lost as I don't speak German either. However i'm loving it, everyone is so friendly and I would like to learn German but it's easy to get by without it
Also there are some amazing bars!

Good luck with the new job

Pip

Thanks for the reply Pip. I'm particularly glad to hear that everyone is friendly, and that there is good entertainment to be had.
