Hello Everyone!

Hello Everybody,

I am new to Switzerland and I am married to a Swiss citizen. I am a Cinematographer by training and my partner is an Architect. At present, we are based out of Wittenbach and we plan to make Switzerland our home. My German language proficiency is of A2 level, so I plan to concentrate on studying German for the next 6 months and also pick up part time/full time jobs just to pay my bills. I speak English, Hindi and Urdu as my first languages. I also speak Polish because I got my film education from Poland and spent 6 years there. If anyone from the forum is in and around this part of Switzerland and would like to meet up for, you are most welcome. Thank you and Cheers

Re: Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Switzerland and to the EF, and many thanks for your nice intro.

I lived in Engelburg, Gemeinde Gaiserwald, just west of Wittenbach, for almost ten years, but that was back in the 1960s and '70s when I was a bit younger. My baby brother lives in Roggwil, north of Wittenbach, but I have moved my base camp to Michigan, some 4500 miles west, because Lake Michigan is larger than Lake Constance, and besides that I married a chick from there last year.

There are quite a few active EFers in the St. Gallen area. Just look around for "St. Gallen" in Quickies -> Simple Search or Advanced Search.

Re: Hello Everyone!

Hi and welcome to the forum. Hope you settle well. Sounds like learning languages is not difficult for you.



@Captain
Wonder if the 'baby brother' and the chick feel flattered?

The chick does, well kind of, and the baby brother has to live with it. He's six years younger and one inch shorter, very difficult to catch up with. Besides that, said chick is two days older than said brother, and she likes calling him "my little brother."

I heard there are twins of which the older one keeps saying to the younger one, "Well, ya know, when I was your age...."

Yes, it's basically an online community for English-speaking people living in Switzerland.

Are you working here, or did you come for looovvvee?
