English au pair just moved to Switzerland (near Baden)!

Hello!

I am a 21 year old english girl who has just moved to Switzerland! I am a graduate of the University of Manchester and came to be an au pair to learn German and experience living in Switzerland, in the hope of potentially staying and finding a job here when my year is up! It would be cool to meet some people who live close to Baden (or Zurich) as I live in Ehrendingen. Let me know if you would like to meet up some time.

Welcome to the forum. There's a few Brits in Ehrendingen. Listen out for a northern(ish) accent when you're next in the Co-op and it could be me!

And some of us locals from nearby villages also shop there.

To the OP, welcome to the forum. Hope everything is off to a good start for you.

Thanks for the greetings guys If anyone knows of any other Au Pairs in the area let me know! I always have to travel to Zurich to meet them!
How does everyone enjoy living in Switzerland, I'm hoping to put my degree to good use and (hopefully new German skills) to find a job next year. Would you recommend living in Switzerland over the UK?

Hi Sophie!!
I will be in Baden aupair from mid January! I'm a Spanish girl, just finished my studies and I think being aupair is the most fun way to learn languages​​. I'd like to stay for a year so it would be great if you live near Baden. You can count on me!

Hello Kasia,

Yea that'd be great to meet you this weekend in Baden.Too bad that i will leave to Neuchatel in 3 weeks. Actually my Au pair work will finish until the end of this august and on september i will start my uni in neuchatel.

How long have you been in Baden as Au pair?

Cheers

There are Northerners over here?! I've been in Dachsen for 4 weeks almost, and those who speak basic English here don't understand my accent at all...anyone else experience similar?!

Funnily enough, a guy today thought my hubby and I were speaking French, we were actually speaking English with a Lancashire accent! I've never been told I sound French before

LANCASHIRE! The very land I come from! Hmm, not sure we sound French though...I'm also finding it quite difficult learning to speak German with my accent

Re: English au pair just moved to Switzerland (near Baden)!

I know what you mean, but in my case I don't think that it's just because of the accent

Which part of Lancashire are you from?
I usually get laughs when I say this, but I'm from Ramsbottom.

Ahh, Ramsbottom! I went there once. Bury way is it? I'm terrible at geography! I was born and bred in Wigan, but lived in Chorley for 7 years

Re: English au pair just moved to Switzerland (near Baden)!

Is there an Aupair in the area who is interested in working and playing some extra hours in a Swiss/American household in Wuerenlos?
