Hi! I'm (sort of) new in CH from Portugal via US

hi all

i arrived in zurich to stay for 3 years about 4 months ago but have been away for the last 2, so i guess i'm sort of new here... again

i decided to come back to europe and go back to school for a phd here - i'm originally from portugal but have lived in california for the last 10+ years

i can speak very basic german but have made little learning progress since all my academic and social interactions end up being in english for one reason or another (yep, all new friends also expats)

i have found the toughest thing to be "cyber-surviving" without a good knowledge of german - where to look for (what) stuff, paperwork, interest groups, etc

i found this forum through an unrelated google search

i look forward to chatting with you all

cheers

Hello IchBins, welcome to the forum! With your biography, you should perhaps post in this thread:

Life Planner or Meanderer?



Have a nice week.
