Re: looking for English speaking friends..

Hi Tingtong and all you gals.. I live in Zurich would love to meet some new friends as well... although I would rarely be able to do late evening meetups, I am still up for meeting anyone who doesn't mind my 2 year old during the day time. I am also open to play dates with other mums . How old is your child tingtong, perhaps we can get together sometime.

looking for English speaking friends..

There is a large expat population in Winterthur ... there are two English spesking expat groups I know of, Expats in Winterthur at Yahoo and also Meetup. The yahoo group is a good place to post your questions, and so is the expat moms in zurich group (you mentioned you are a mum). The meetup group tends to meet at the pub in the evenings, is a very friendly crowd from mixed backgrounds. www.internationalclub.ch is set up by the international companies as well ad Winti tourism. They meet monthly at a classy bar in the evening, and monthly at a mums coffee morning, plus loads of other activities for families eg bowling, baseball (yes!) etc.

I love winterthur... and the women here are the happiest women in Switzerland according to a survey last year. I'm happy ..., perhaps it is the Sprungli chocolate, or the Vollenweider meringe maccarroons.....

Go to the lower floor cafe in Orell Fussli bookshop in the main shopping street (called Marktgasse at one end, but something else at the other end, maybe Obertor?... opposite Tibits) and sit and read English books (it's also child friendly) while drinking your coffee, and other english speakers will arrive and strike up a conversation.

Go to one of the many public swimming pools (again, very child friendly) called Schwimmbad, or Hallenbad eg Geiselwaid is quite central, and speak English loudly ... there are loads of us around.

If all that fails please let me know and I can probably offer more ideas....

Whoops. Tapatalk on iPhone doesn't show year of post, just month and day. I saw Lenova's post from yesterday, which suggests meeting in aug 2010, and assumed original post was also current.

Hi girls. I too am new to Zurich -- moved here just last Friday in fact. I'm Scottish, am married with no children and would love to catch up with some female friends for a friendly chat. We live in the Weidikon (excuse spelling ...) area. I'm currently searching for a new job, so am free during the days until such time ....

Look forward to hearing from you.
Angela
Hi Angela, me and my husband have recently moved to Switzerland too. It seems i have in a similar situation like you. I am originally from Latvia, but I have lived for last 10 years in Ireland and my husband comes from NIreland. He works, but i am trying to keep occupied as I don't work.
I miss irish buzz here, socializing and company. I know it is early days as we are just settling, but still, I am very sociable person and looking for new friends.
Oh Yeah, I live in St Gallen region, near Will.

Re: looking for English speaking friends..

Hello. I am a new member of EnglishForum and still trying to figure out how it works. I found this site accidentally as I was looking for information about Switzerland in general.
However, me and my husband have moved recently to Switzerland and I haven't made any friends yet. I've lived a long time in Ireland(that's where my husband is from), but originally i come from Latvia.
I like it here, but at the same time I miss friends and socializing in general.
I am 32 years old and I live near Wil. I would be happy to find some friends in this area. I am sociable person, love things like art, travelling etc.
