Im new hello everyone whats the cheapest way to learn the french in geneva

I cant believe how beautiful Geneva looks and I want a change in my life. I finished a longterm relationship a year ago and although London has its appeal The Geneva backdrop looks amazing. I learned German for a year and a half so I guess that might help and Im trained in lower limb health.
I love art and music and geneva looks too inspiring to miss. I would start work in a bar just to help with accommadation expence and French lessons. Maybe after some time I can work in the insurance sector as my knowledge of leg and foot injuries and litigation experience would be useful in a claims handler role......If there are such jobs.
I learned French at school but lost it as I never use it. But the French language is more romantic than German and so there's an opportunity to kill three birds with one stone. Continue the German, relearn the French and live in Geneva....So here I start my first tentative steps to a move to Geneva.....Whats the crime like?...Is it as bad as London. Do the swiss like the English? Thanks for any your thoughts newbie timbostar

Hi and WELCOME!!

Learn french it will help in many different ways and make you feel more "at home" and make sure you do it straight away,it will also help you make friends! German will help you also in day to day life i hear it spoken now and again.
Ok so as crime goes i think there is no worry there,coming from south east england, to me switzerland seems very safe. As crime goes you will notice people just leaving their bikes,unlocked at the train stations etc. No massive padlocks and chains then the frame stolen and you left with just the wheel!! well i don't know statistics but this is just my observation.
If you are already here.......enjoy as the summer is in full swing and there is plenty going on! The swiss are quite forward in the respect of speaking and just making general conversation, (well the handful that i know or have met.) so i assume that they like "us"
Good luck hope this helped a little.
