Anyone in Sion?

Hi All!

Any English speakers in Sion or near by? I'm American and have a one year old son. I'm looking to connect and expose my son to English speakers that have kids near his age. We moved here not too long ago. Even if you don't have kids, it's OK. I'd love to speak some English every once in a while

Re: Anyone in Sion?

Hi Jules, Rebecca,

Bit of an old thread, but I have just moved back to Sion - would be good for my children to keep their English up as well, as they only hear French these days, except from me! I have a daughter aged 6 and a son aged 4. Do you know if there are English classes for anglophone children in VS? Let me know if you want to get in touch!

Cheers, Paul

Hi Paul - would be happy to meet up. We don't know any other English speakers. Rebecca moved back to Canada, sadly. She and her kids were lovely.

As for classes, I haven't seen any.

Re: Anyone in Sion?

Hi Jules,

Not so many rosbifs/anglo-saxons/etc? Oh well.... I am spending quite a bit of time in the library/médiathèque these days, but am looking after the children from time to time as well, such as today, as my wife is in Bern for work. Is it possible to PM in this Forum? So I don't broadcast my phone number to all and sundry?

Not sure I can compete in the loveliness stakes, but we should try to meet up - which parks do you go normally? Planta?

Cheers, Paul
