Moved from London to Birmensdorf

Hello!

I moved to Swiss 4months a go and I'm finding a bit difficult to get used to life over here... Maybe because it was a lot to leave behade, friends, job, language and 11years of life inLondon...
I would love to be able to keep in touch with people with the same kind of issues, maybe go for a coffee and try to help each other... I don't speak German yet but I'm studying. I have a Swiss partner that is very supportive but I miss to talk to different people...

Regards and have a good evening!
Karina

Hello Karina

Your post is from September. How did it go? Did you catch up a little?

We were thinking of moving to Birmensdorf with two small kids and we do not speak German. Is it doable?

Re: Moved from London to Birmensdorf

Hi everyone. I know this post is a little old but we just moved to Zurich with my husband and will be moving to Birmensdorf mid December.

I will not be working at first so would love to meet some people in the area that speak English. I am swiss and can speak some German but it is far from perfect and my husband can’t speak much as of yet.

Any tips about Birmensdorf too?

Best
Celine
