Neuchatel newbie

Hello All,

Thanks to google, I found this website. I just moved to Neuchatel from the US a couple of weeks ago and don't know anybody here. I have work friends but in the evenings I mostly end up spending time with myself. To make matters worse I don't speak any French which kind of makes it harder to meet and get to know people. I am hoping to fix the language situation soon with some classes at ecole Migros (if people here have any other recommendations, I am open to suggestions).

If anybody would like to meet up for a drink do let me know; it would be nice to meet and make some new friends!

Thanks!

Re: Neuchatel newbie

Hi Speedster, welcome to the forum and to Neuchatel. I hope you settle in well and nice work on the language classes right off the bat, that will definitely help smooth your experience here. There are quite a few EF members in Neuchatel and events are organized quite regularly (just check out the Events section and don't be shy!)

Will be organising a big BBQ for the 'locals' 2nd week-end in September - hope you can come along. Will be setting up the event next week here on EF.
Oh, and welcome.

Now many people are out of Neuchatel for holidays i guess but it would be nice to meet one day.
Welcome to Neuchatel and hope you'll enjoy the city

Re: Neuchatel newbie

Hey,

I'm living in Fribourg and just got here on Sunday. In the same boat as you.

So if you ever fancy venturing out or I come to you, then would love to go for a drink or two :-)

Just let me know when you're free!!

Hey All,

Thanks for the lovely welcome. It's really nice of you guys.
@Kristanez: thanks and yes I'm hoping the French lessons will help smooth things over. Will keep checking the events section.
