SydneySwiss has no particular reputation at present
Hoping to move from Sydney to Zurich! Are we dreaming??

Hi all, I am so new to this so I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place!!
To try and cut a long story short, my husband and I would like to relocate our family of four to Switzerland but don't really know how to go about it and are not really sure we know what we are in for.
He is Swiss but moved with his family to Australia when he was 12.
We have holidayed in Switzerland and we all fell in love with it's beauty and what seems to be a much more relaxed and quiet atmosphere in comparison to Sydney, Australia.
These are my burning questions and would love to hear from anyone who is willing to take the time to answer them!!
- Our children are 7 and 3, will my 7 year old be able to attend a local school without too much of a problem....keeping in mind that he only knows a few words in German?
- Switzerland seems to be a wonderful, wholesome place to raise children....is this a fair assumption or are we being too romantic about the place?
- Wil or Zurich? We have family in Wil but Zurich seems more international and English friendly?!?
- My husband is a Group Financial Accountant for a large international company (unfortunately no Swiss office) and he would prefer to gain employment in Switzerland prior to making the big move. Is this possible or does he need to be there to have half a chance?

That's all for now!!! So happy to have finally posted my questions.....thanks everyone!!
