The kiwi has landed

Hey there everyone,

I'm Ella from New Zealand. I moved to Switzerland at the beginning of this summer (granted it did take a while to kick in didn't it?) and I've loved living here so far.
A little about me. I'm an English teacher and I'm currently looking for work in the Winterthur/Zürich area. After a few years teaching I'd like to pursue my Masters in International Relations at the University of St. Gallen.

I'm a fan of hiking and outdoor sports (I hit the jackpot coming here) and love travel. Before I came to Switzerland I was working in southern Spain for six months as an English language assistant, which further encouraged my interest in language learning and teaching.

Are there any other kiwis out there? Pleased to meet you all in the forum!

Regards,

Ella

Hi Ella,

I'm new here too and also from New Zealand. Where abouts in New Zealand are you from? I'm currently living in Kanton Aargau and commuting to German lessons in Zürich every day. Fingers crossed you find work soon!

Welcome Ella!
I'm not from NZ, but my stepdaughter and her family live there, near Nelson in the South Island.
You have come from one beautiful country to another.

Hey Katie

Nice to know there are more kiwis around! I'm from Auckland, what about you?
I'm living in the Kanton Schwyz right now but will be moving to Winterthur later on.
I go into Zürich every Wednesday to give an English class. What school are you learning with and are you a beginner too? I'm learning at home with the help of my Swiss partner and his family.

Nice to meet you and maybe see you in Zürich sometime!

Ella

Re: The kiwi has landed

And thanks for the welcome!

The forum has indeed been useful, great to see it's so active too!
And Switzerland is beautiful, I've been hiking all over the place and my friends and family in NZ are really impressed by the photos, they think they're pulled from the internet they're so pretty!
