Anyone around Sion, Martigny...

Hello, I am new here, 2 kids and soon moving to Valais. I was just wondering if any English speaking parents lived around Sion or Martigny. We are currently in the UK, have been here for 8 years, but will be moving back to Switzerland. My eldest son speaks mostly English and I would love to find him some mates and be able to have a chat in English, myself included Please get in touch

I'm not sure about an English community in Martigny but if you head up the valley to le Chable / Verbier you'll find lots of people. When I lived in Verbier it was hard to find anyone who spoke French.

Interestingly Verbier is about the only place that I can speak in French in a resturant & not get a reply in English!

Re: Anyone around Sion, Martigny...

Hi Hana!

I am South African and I am English speaking. I lived in London for a few years and now I am living in Sion. I don't have any kids of my own, but I am a stepmum to a wonderful french speaking 7 year old boy.

I too have been looking for someone that is English speaking around this area. It would be so wonderful to meet someone with whom I could speak English with. If you keen to get to know me... Send me a message!

Have a great day!

Re: Anyone around Sion, Martigny...

Hi there, sorry it took me so long to reply, it's been a bit busy here and then I was going through my old messages and saw yours.... unreplied.... really sorry about that. I would definitely like to meet sometime, I have met some English speaking mums in the area, we go to some playgroups sometime, but it wouldn't be very exciting for your stepson I guess I am not English but used to live in the UK for almost 10 years... Would love to hear from you!

Hello,
My family and I will be moving to Sierre by July. We lived in Canada and I have 2 sons, 4 & 6 are pretty fluent in English: We are looking to find native English speakers. Any input would be greatly appreciated !
Thanks !
Olivier.

Re: Anyone around Sion, Martigny...

Hello,
Anybody with young kids in Sion? We recently moved here and would be interested in meeting up with some English speaking families. We have 2 young kids under 5. Both are English speakers and starting to learn French.

Cheers!

We have found a few English speaking families at the local playgroup in Sion. Not sure if your kids are in school during the day, but playgroup runs Mon (am) and Thurs (pm). http://centres-medico-sociaux.ch/fr/...comme-3-pommes

We're also at the local parks too if you would like to meet for a play date. Feel free to message me.
