I was first introduced to this forum by a bet. A beautiful man who I love to bits and I am now very close with made a bet that I couldn't figure out what he said to me in his native tongue. He said he would give me 2 weeks to find out what it was. Well needless to say I didn't know there wasn't a translator online that could translate swiss-german so I got a little cocky and said I'll tell you tomorrow. He said no you won't (laughing).........and to make a long story short. I was up all freakin night going through website after website with no luck, until I clicked on this forum. I took a chance and registered with my question. You lovely people were my saving grace and I got to impress the most wonderful guy. Thanks. liebe Grüsse sünneli

P.S. macht das dsunne schint is one of the things that day that he made me translate.......he said i made his sun shine and that is what he calls me ......sünneli (his sunshine).

Mod Note: This is that thread in question
http://www.englishforum.ch/language-...ss-german.html
Now that's a really really sweet story
nice one for a cosy Sunday afternoon

Re: How did you find this forum?

Google Search! This site came up often in the various searches I typed in Google. My family and I will be relocating to Switzerland (the Zurich area) in the summer, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible about Switzerland and the various Kantons. I found this site so helpful, I decided to become a member.

Re: How did you find this forum?

Greetings and Gruezi, I was wondering about my Swisscom internet connection which seems to have occasional dropouts, which seems to affect uploading my music to SoundCloud.com (DNS after 80% upload with the old school uploader over and over), which in turn is driving me nuts, so I Goooogled "Swisscom DSL" to see if it's Swisscom or SoundCloud with the buffer problems and came upon this interesting site. The post I found here by the search engine, led me to a ping testing site. Nice one Anyway, I'm Swiss but grew up in Japan and received a British/American education, been living here for a few years. English is my preferred language so it's great to hear about other English speakers living here. Cheers

Re: How did you find this forum?

I got to know it through a friend, she told me to check it out and I'm glad I did so, cos here I found many answers to questions I had.

But Google guides you to the EF whenever u type questions about Switzerland

Re: How did you find this forum?

I was searching information about cost of living and salaries in CH.
That is how I know that 120k CHF a year should pay my bills and live me with some pocket money at the end of the month

Re: How did you find this forum?

I've had a bookmark to the site for donkeys and even thought I was a member. Tried this morning to find keys to the door but ended up registering.
Most probably originally found it reading the Yahoo Group: BaselExpat

Re: How did you find this forum?

I belong to a forum for another country for Brits, that I was a regular contributor. Then believe it was last year whilst in Switzerland did a search, probably Google that brought me here. This year have been reading it more. It is very helpful but a bit surprised how many years back so many of the threads go. Gruezi
