Hello from Malvern Hills

Hello,

I have been offered a teaching job in Hasliberg and enjoy the great outdoors I enjoy skiing and white waterkayaking, This is a big move for me and hope to ask you some questions which I hope will alleviate the dress of some serious decision making.

Cheers

Richie

Re: Hello from Malvern Hills

Hi Richie! If it is outdoors you’re after than the Hasliberg really is a great spot. It’s beautiful (but then again so are the Malverns) and there are lots of possibilities close by for kayaking and skiing (Hasliberg is a ski resort). Depending on what else you like to do, there is the issue of how isolated it is there. Closest towns with anything going are Interlaken and Luzern, which are quite a way away. If you live for the outdoors then it will be a perfect move, if you have other interests then you could get a little lonely there. Best of luck!

Ecole de Humanité by any chance?

Hasliberg is lovely. For kayaking you have the Simme, Saane and Lütschine rivers within a reasonable drive.

So what are the questions?
If it's the Ecole d'Humanité you're heading to - please do! We need some Brits there to balance the Americans. LOL.

Yes, Goldern is isolated if you're into night-life etc. But as to the outdoor sports you will get your fill all year 'round and not only in your time off.
With the school run in English and German in all aspects and 24/7 it will be easy for you to settle immediately. The proportion of foreign students (as to compared to the Swiss students) was 47% last school-year. That is from all over the world.

Teaching wise it will also be a new experience for you!
I'd say grab the chance - but yes, I'm prejudice.

If it's not the Ecole d'Humanité, it could get a little lonely at the beginning. But that's the case for any expat here, as you can easily see in other threads.

Answer for the first unanswered question;

Read the posts in the various threads. Do searches. Almost everything you want to know will be covered.

Cheers, I have heard similar about isolation in that area, I wouldn't have a car and done abit of research on interlaken which is probably more of a haven for adventure types.
